The Python Software Community in Ghana (Python Ghana), is a registered non-profit organisation, run solely
by kind-hearted volunteers with the common vision of moving Africa to the forefront in the world of technology.
We are an organisation of technology enthusiasts who seek to promote and advance the use of technology.
Burdened with limited resources, promising talents in Africa, especially in tech, are forced to upskill through non-traditional
pathways which are quite challenging.
With Python at the heart of most emerging technologies currently redefining traditional roles and structures in our society, it is imperative to be prudent and be active contributors in this change.
Our mission is to promote the use of the Python programming language across industries, communities, schools, learning centers,
regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, ability, and recognizing the value of diversity.
We are not just Python-centric. We aim to also positively influence the rate of technological change in our society.
The community is an open hub that embraces master programmers, intermediate, absolute beginners and even just the curious minded in an environment
where knowledge is shared, and family is built.
We are a diverse group currently comprising six user-groups around the country, and various initiatives such as: PyLadies Ghana, a mentorship group
focused on bridging the diversity gap in tech by empowering more ladies and introducing them to tech using the Python Programming language and; PyData
Ghana for educating individuals in Data science and Artificial intelligence.
Other pipeline initiatives/projects includes - PyScholars, for young scholars at the senior high level and; PyClubs where students meet and learn at the tertiary level.
We set out to -
Foster unity among community members and promote the individual development of community members.
Educate, encourage, support and if necessary, help facilitate projects of members of the community.
The community is open to everyone at all levels, so whether you are resident in Ghana or outside the country, an absolute beginner
or a maestro programmer in Python or other languages but have some interest in Python, our community will embrace you.
Join us on our journey as we endeavour to make a difference!
