The Opportunity

The technology industry is growing faster than ever in Kenya, but a lack of enough computer science educators in schools limit the number of students who go into the fields. M-Soma operates as a not for profit organization to ensure that the brightest minds from underprivileged backgrounds in Kenya access these opportunities.
