Moringa School, a software developer accelerator based in Nairobi, has announced plans to launch its first ever women’s boot camp this coming November, with the aim of graduating over 100 female developers in the coming months.

The institution made the announcement via a statement published on iHub’s blog, where they informed interested female programmers that fees for the bootcamp will be slashed in half.

“Classes will begin on November 20th at Moringa’s Nairobi campus, and all fees will be slashed by 50 percent,” the statement said.

“Currently, percent of our students are women, and 95 percent of our students find employment. Our aim is to create equality among our students. We hope that with the 50 percent subsidy on this program, we can increase the number of women graduating and place them in an industry where they can not only empower themselves but inspire the change towards inclusivity that this industry so desperately needs.” The statement continued

Moringa’s fees are usually $1600, but selected applicants for the upcoming bootcamp could pay fees as low as $800. Selected applicants will join the 5-week Moringa Prep class in November, where they will access world-class coding content, curated and created by Moringa School in an innovative blended learning environment.

In the first 5 weeks of the program, students will focus on making sure that world-class knowledge in programming translates into real-world skills by enabling our students to learn through practice – by actually doing.

In January, a select number will move on to Moringa Core, where they will specialize in Android development paired with soft skills matched to current employer needs. At the end of the 15-week course, our students will then participate in our job placement program.

“One lucky student will also get the chance to join our CEO in the Future Youth Conference in China where they will interact with thought leaders in the global education and technology space,” the statement added.
