Moringa School, a Kenyan EdTech startup focused on developing and nurturing high potential individuals in software engineering and other tech-based skills, has raised an undisclosed amount in its pre-series A round of funding from Proparco (AFD Group).
Moringa says this funding round will be used to solidify its expansion to Ghana and soon, Nigeria, as it also plans to scale across other African countries in the next 12 months.
The funding builds on its recent Seed Investment by DOB Equity and $9.5 million funding by Mastercard Foundation that has seen the tech-based learning institution start to train Software Engineers in Ghana and soon Nigeria.
The investment comes at an exciting time for Moringa as the institution expands to Ghana and Nigeria. We are keen to leverage on this partnership to train many more students using the leading US Bootcamp’s curriculum from Flatiron School. In line with our vision of a world in which anyone can create their future, we welcome the support of Proparco to make our courses available in new markets in Africa .Snehar Shah, Moringa’s new CEO
