1 Mins read

Are you interested in gaining real-world experience working on high-value, high-impact projects? If so, the Developer Circles & Andela: #BuildforSDG Challenge is for you! The first round of this program was launched in March, 2020, to 2.5K+ developers

#BuildforSDG Challenge is a seven-week immersive online program where selected developers will work in agile remote teams to innovate on projects relating to the SDGs. The top fifteen (15) teams from each challenge will be invited to a one-day pitch-a-thon event to share their ideas, get mentorship from businesses, and gain access to hiring professionals. From there, the winners of the pitch-a-thon will be invited to a regional Facebook event, receive a Facebook engineering mentorship, swag, and access to a local hub with a functional workspace where selected developers will work as individuals or in agile remote teams to innovate on projects relating to industries and SDGs.

If you want to participate in the #BuildforSDG Challenge, you must have at least one year of technical experience and have a working knowledge of front-end, back-end, or full-stack development. Candidates must be proficient in English and be based in a country where the program is held.

Cohort 2: July – October 2020 (All of Africa)

These dates are subject to change by the program partners.
