Software is becoming a critical layer of all our lives. It is the language of our world. In the future, not knowing the language of computers will be as challenging as being illiterate or unemployed are today. Every job in the future will not involve programming, but it is still crucial that every child learns to code.

Still counting, the startup has trained over 30 interested individuals, residence within and around the area of operation.
As a startup, their greatest achievement so far is seeing people like, appreciate and wishing for a continuous support for our services rendered to them or others.
Born from a vibrant community like iSpace, TAN will leapfrog to its maximum against most competitions.
Their competitors may have all it takes when it comes to the funding, resources and advanced courses and program yet the #1 identity setting TAN apart is the making of tech more accessible to these deprived individuals.
