For Immediate Release, 8th February 2022
Following the announcement of its new CEO, scale-up specialist Snehar Shah, and a Curriculum Agreement with Flatiron School last month, Moringa School has today hit the refresh button by lifting the veil on its new brand to its stakeholders in the EdTech space in Kenya and other African Markets, starting with the entry into Ghana in partnership with Impact Hub Accra.
The Covid-19 pandemic and the growth of the tech sector across Africa provided Moringa with an opportunity to re-think its campus-based teaching model and overall strategy to ensure it continues to make significant contributions to the development of human capital in Africa’s tech ecosystem and connecting that human capital to meaningful opportunities.
Moringa’s rebrand is a big Thank You and a reaffirmation of its commitment to continuously deliver on the 3 areas the market most values from the Brand:
- Community: To provide a platform for current and aspiring tech professionals, employers, and enthusiasts to connect, learn, find work, start businesses, and to innovate.
- Market-Aligned Skills: To deliver training in the skills the market most wants and that are of most practical value to those working in tech.
- Accessibility: To engage aspiring tech professionals with the aptitude and mindset needed to succeed, no matter their circumstances to achieve a long term vision of an inclusive tech ecosystem in Africa.
Moringa’s vision remains the same for “A world in which anyone can create their future” and the rebrand is an open invitation to the entire tech ecosystem to come Discover, Grow, and Transform with Moringa as it journeys to building the leading ecosystem for tech career management in Africa.
Snehar Shah – Moringa’s new CEO said,
“We are excited to bring to you this new Moringa brand that is focused on empowering students to discover their potential, grow their technical skills, and transform their realities through market-aligned tech skills training for career-readiness. With a placement rate of 85% of all job-seeking alumni within 12 months of graduating from our courses, we are convinced the problem we are solving is big enough for us to continue pursuing our vision for a world in which anyone can create their future. This partnership with Impact Hub Accra will help us empower Ghanaian students with the tools to build lasting careers with greater confidence, competence, and possibility. We cannot wait to flag off the first class later this month.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our long-term investors and the Mastercard Foundation for the substantial support they have given us over the years, our 300+ employer partners who consistently validate the value of our training by hiring from our alumni pool and giving us the feedback we need to improve, and most importantly, our students, and their families who support them, for trusting us with their education.”
Kelechi Victor Ofeogbu, Impact Hub Accra’s Chief Operating Officer also commented,
”As the Ghanaian technology and innovation ecosystem becomes more connected and adapts to tackle layers of local and global challenges, there is an increasing need to train and equip professional software developers who in collaboration with their peers can think about and develop quality solutions to these challenges, the ability to solve these challenges is what makes them an opportunity for growth, we are excited to partner with market leader Moringa School to bring home this opportunity for talent growth and development.”
The inaugural 5-month Software Development Class in Ghana that will be run by Moringa using Flatiron School’s world-leading curriculum will be delivered at Impact Hub Accra.
