ONE MILLION ARAB CODERS
One Million Arab Coders develops digital literacy in Arab youth, ensuring their readiness for the future and preparing the next generation of technology experts. OMAC achieves this through a digital platform that provides online programming courses accessible by Arab youth around the world.
Launched in 2017 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, OMAC is the largest initiative of its kind in the Arab world. It has now expanded to chapters in Uzbekistan and Jordan. OMAC is a driving force for tech innovation and incubates the talent that will spearhead the development of communities and tech economies.
Fast-Tracked Digital Empowerment
Courses range from basic digital literacy to advanced programmes across a range of tracks that include app development, machine learning, data analysis and many more.
OMAC fills digital literacy gaps to bridge Arab youth with the job market. Top achievers gain scholarships to an advanced six-month nanodegree course with one-on-one mentorship. OMAC is where the world’s youth speak the language of the future — code.
