Inspiring a Generation of Tech Leaders in East Africa
We aim to develop the creative and innovative potential of young people in East Africa by providing them with the technical skills and community support they need to be employable
M-Soma is a computer skills training program for Kenyan youth from under-resourced communities and schools. We aim to increase the number of skilled software engineers/developers in East Africa, and enable other career professionals to actively apply technology in their work.
Statistics show that seventy percent of unemployed people in Kenya are young people aged between 18 and 35. Over 92 percent among them have some formal education but do not possess the relevant skills required for most jobs.
To provide scholars from under-resourced communities and schools with the skills and community support they need to become professional software developers
