More than 200 students graduated in Software Development, Data Science, Product Design, and short courses like DevOps and Data Visualization at the Moringa School in an event held at the Moringa campus along Ngong Road Nairobi.
The theme of the graduation was “Reimagining the Future : Cultivating an Entrepreneurial mindset and harnessing opportunities as the first step to success”
The graduates showcased some of the tech skills they learn in front of their parents and guests who included Mr. Ben Roberts from the Kenya Private Sector Alliance and Liquid Telecom, the Director of Accreditation at TVET Authority Mr. Fred Oanda, the Country Director of the Global Peace Foundation Mr. Daniel Juma Omondi, the Executive Director of NairoBits Trust Ms. Magdalene Wanjugu and Mr. Samuel Kariuki from Microsoft.
Speaking during the graduation, the CEO of Moringa School Mr. Snehar Shah congratulated the students and expressed optimism that they will be absorbed in the digital marketplace as a result of the skills they had learnt. “I will admit that there is still more work to be done when preparing our students for the job market, but could we have gotten one step closer to finding a long-term solution to this monster we call unemployment? Maybe, what we do know is that continuous feedback, especially from our alumni, will help us understand the gaps, and fill them so we as Moringa are better equipped to train and support our current and prospective students!” said Mr. Shah.
Chief Guest Mr. Ben Roberts from Liquiid Telecom and KEPSA said, “Moringa has positioned itself in a way that other Kenyan brands should admire and plays a pivotal role in the transformation of Africa’s Ed-tech space and specifically taking the time to nurture Kenyans with skills they can apply in the current job market. With such an extraordinary record of growth and success, I am honored to be asked to be the Chief Guest of such a great institution”
Ajedidah Mwanzia, a recent graduate of Moringa who was a beneficiary of the Access program from a partnership with Mastercard Foundation that has sponsored 2,000 students at Moringa also said “one of the things I made possible was that I started a tech kids program, where the children learn how to code
and I am proud of that because I was able to create a job or two for other developers.”
