Our Journey

In 2014, Moringa School launched its maiden Software Development class in Kenya with a cohort of only four (4) students and a vision for “A world in which anyone can create their future”. At that time, there was a growing demand for skilled tech talent as companies increased investment in technology to gain a competitive advantage from their own digital transformation. This demand was not being met by the available local talent due to a lack of skills…Something had to be done!

Through the introduction of its 5-6 month Software Development and Data Science Bootcamps, Moringa School embarked on a journey that would integrate over 4,000 learners from diverse backgrounds and experiences while channeling their motivation to learn and grow through market-aligned curriculum, a learning approach that simulates practical on-the-job-experience, and a vibrant community of employer partners, higher learning institutions, and other industry stakeholders. This approach ensured that graduating students were prepared to take up their rightful place in the digital economy evidenced by the EdTech leader’s employment rate of 85% for all job-seeking alumni within 12 months.
