Moringa School is a multi-disciplinary coding school committed to closing the skills gap in Africa’s job market by offering high-potential students the necessary technical and professional training in order to compete in a digital, global economy.
Founded in 2014 by Audrey Cheng, a Taiwanese-American entrepreneur, Moringa School is creating world-class developers by providing a comprehensive curriculum and an outcome-driven program to motivated, young people in Africa.
Before she started Moringa School, Cheng was an investor in technology companies across Africa. She realized she kept hearing the same question from employers: Where can we find highly skilled workers in technology? This conundrum is especially profound in Africa where unemployment rates are high and further education alternatives are scarce. In Kenya, 89 percent of high school graduates do not qualify for university, leaving many jobless and devoid of educational opportunities. Cheng saw this as an opportunity to create an alternative education that reflect what employers are looking for. With that in mind, Moringa School was born.
