This is a CFN flagship project to promote sustainable peace in Africa through innovative and creative ideas. #Tech4Peace is aimed at leveraging on technology to address security challenges in the continent. Specifically, the objectives of this project are in two folds;
- To build the capacity of young Africans on key tech skills that support effective peace building efforts
- To adopt technology as a tool to promote sustainable peace and security in Africa.
The pilot phase of #Tech4Peace project was launched in 2019 in Lagos, Nigeria, with training of 30 young tech enthusiasts on three key IT skills – Introduction to Artificial Intelligence and 3D Design.
Moving forward, app development and AI are the courses will intend to deeply train our train our participants. We hugely also use this training as hackathon, where series of ideas can be birthed.
We welcome organisations and relevant bodies that are willing to partner with us on this journey to sustainable peace in Africa.
