080, Audrey Cheng, Moringa School | Code School for Kenya

When Audrey Cheng was working with Savannah Fund, Africa’s leading technology seed fund and accelerator, she ran into a problem. She could not find software developers. She noticed that she was not the only one who was experiencing this problem. In fact, a 2011 survey found that, in Kenya, 45% of employers with developer positions were not able to find qualified coders. And the developers they were able to find were very expensive. Many Kenyan companies outsourced work to India, Eastern Europe and other regions.

Audrey began to ask questions. With unemployment rates around 40%, and universities teaching computer science, why were there so few qualified developers in Kenya? Audrey realized that Kenyan universities and training schools were not teaching the needed skills. With her cofounder Frank Tamre, Audrey set out to solve her problem. She and Frank created Moringa School.

Moringa has three programs. Junior Moringa School teaches basic coding skills. Moringa School is an intensive 16 week bootcamp where aspiring programmers are taught to become world-class developers. And Moringa DevShop provides services to companies around the world.

Nearly 100% of Moringa graduates find employment. Many increase their income by 350% as a result of having experienced the program.
