The education space has seen many innovations. Deviating from the usual course of education, several coding bootcamps and schools have been set up. These schools, virtual or physical, to help people learn programming, hence making the playing field for getting into tech a little more level. Moringa School is a intensive tech education program based out of Nairobi, Kenya.
The school has achieved much success in East Africa and has now partnered the Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology to expand to Ghana this September.
