Students will learn to code and engage in apprenticeships to create portfolios and connect with employment.

Based off of the idea that coding can work to create both local and international virtual employment opportunities, Actualize Coding Bootcamp is offering it's first 12 week training session in Kigali! 

Feedback from beneficiaries right now suggests students are learning solid skills that lead to employment, and are connecting with employers daily. Students are also setting up apprenticeships that will lead to creating portfolios and relationships with employers that lead to lasting, sustainable work. The feedback from instructors is that the students are on par with international standards, and they will likely meet the 90% employment rate of other bootcamp participants. 

We are hopeful that this early proof of concept will also be successful in refugee camps--if we are given the opportunity to plan with IDEO--where employment opportunities are extremely limited.

Its a great pleasure for me to write this testimony about how i got my Genital Herpes cured a month ago. i have been reading so many comments of some people who were cured from various diseases by Dr Aba but i never believed them. I was hurt and depressed so I was too curious and wanted to try DR. Aba then i contacted him through his email, he assured me 100% that he will heal me, i pleaded with him to help me out. My experience with him was great, he healed me just as he promised. he sent me his medication and ask me to go for a medical check up after two weeks of usage. i agreed with him i took this medication and went for a check up, to my greatest surprise my result was negative, i am really happy that i am cured and healthy again. I have waited for 3weeks to be very sure i was completely healed before writing this testimony. I did another blood test one week ago and it was still Herpes negative. so i guess its time i recommend anyone going through the same way. reach him through his email address: OR call, add him on Whatsapp +2348107155060
