M Soma Institute is dedicated to increase the number of skilled software developers in East Africa, while reinventing the way we prepare individuals to be successful in IT careers. We aim to directly address the shortage of software developers in Kenya, as well as the high cost of pursuing Computer Science courses in tertiary institutions.
With our annual June bootcamps, we focus on developing creativity, teamwork, business and leadership skills among our scholars. We train them to fully leverage on their unique strengths and talents in a way that enhances their chances for professional success. We encourage our scholars to come up with creative solutions and new energy to solve the complex challenges that we face in our world.
We incorporate an ethics course in our curriculum to challenge our scholars to be socially conscious, and work towards their goals while grounded in their deepest values. We prepare them to recognize and react to situations that may require ethical decision making.
