Education & Training (2002–2023)

Coding Training Project (2021-2023)

Papillon has partnered with another NPO to give free coding training to poor and disadvantaged youth and children. This is to offer the children a chance for their future. In 2020, Papillon placed brand new laptops for the pilot project which ran in 2021, and the pilot project was a great success. Other role players have now come on board and donated desktop and tablet computers so that more children and youth are being assisted. A weekly computer literacy and coding programme is now given, alongside a computer-based Mathematics programme. The good news, is that this project has also now been rolled out to another town in the Western Cape.
