#DiggieFair is a flagship program championed by Young At Heart Ghana that encourages children to utilize exciting digital technologies to trigger engaged learning experiences.

The fairs provide a fun and interactive learning space that push children to engage with digital technology, discover something new and this births into exciting learning experiences.

When children are happy, they are motivated to explore the specific areas of interest igniting that exciting feeling. #DiggieFairs therefore create great avenues for children to explore and learn while being consciously guided to discover the utility of digital platforms as tools to solve everyday problems! This year Young At Heart Ghana has so far championed the organization of 2 of such educative and engaging fairs.

The first one this year took place at True Love School, Agyrigano, Accra on the 18th of March, 2016, reaching out to about 150 children. And the second took place on the 28th of March, 2016 during an Easter Monday Picnic event for children at Madonna School, Atekyem, Koforidua which reached out to about 250 children. Pictures below show the modules and activities that were run during the fair!

Young at Heart Ghana greatly cherishes its volunteers drawn from University of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, University of Cape Coast, Asheshi University Koforidua Polytechnic and All Nations University College who have volunteered their time energy and resources to empower the next generation of Digital Innovators.

A special kudos also goes to major funder Tigo Ghana Limited and all partnering organizations like the Ghana Robotics Academy Foundation (GRAF), ASTS (Dare to Dream Ghana), Osramba Co.Ltd, Expo Entertainment, Origma Tech and True Love school for the support during #DiggieFairs. Because of you our dream of empowering the next generation of digital innovators has become a reality.
