Cresta Hotels and PulaSpace have partnered up to launch a coding academy in the township of Old Naledi in Gaborone. Named HandsOnCode, the facility aims to equip individuals with essential skills in artificial intelligence, software development, embedded systems programming, and cyber-security.

The program will initially cater to 20 primary students of Therisanyo Primary School in Old Naledi, with plans for expansion to include youths from the broader Old Naledi community soon.

"We believe that investing in the education of our youth is crucial for Botswana's technological advancement," said Kosi Seitshiro, General Manager of Cresta President Hotel. "This coding centre represents our commitment to nurturing talent and fostering innovation."

For his part, Mooketsi Tekere, founding partner of PulaSpace, stated that the initiative bodes well with the company's vision to use technology to advance socio-economic development in Botswana. 

"We are proud to support initiatives like the Coding Academy Program which play a vital role in equipping individuals with essential AI and coding skills," he said.
