Speaking on the Hackaton sessions, he enthused, “The, I AM THE CODE Hackaton, was impressive. 40-50 young people below on average age of 25 with talents in coding- Java, Python; thinking through ways to solve some of the global challenges identified by the United Nations as SDGs.
“One of the core benefits of events like this is self awareness; increasing the awareness level of talented people on the global challenges. Secondly, teaching young people that coding is the way to go.
“There is a data that suggests that the skills been taught in schools today are not for jobs been created tomorrow. Coding is a bridge to that. When you draw the attentions of young people to solving societal issues via coding, it should be encouraged. That is what I AM THE CODE is doing. I am part of the process to mentor the young people.
“On our side, we are doing a lot. We are building platform which we are using to change the way entrepreneurs think about value creation. Today, if you are in oil and gas, all you think is selling petrol, diesel, kerosene and cooking gas. You don’t even say thank you.
“What we are doing to going to disrupt that value chain. For instance, what we are building will allow us know the customers better such as understanding the preferences of the customer and allow us to use the oil and gas purchases to say a bigger thank you.
