Njeri, a young lady from Kenya and an IT enthusiast. On being denied a US visa to go to a hacking school, she decided to open up her own. At 18, she founded the DEV school, a school started to provide youth with computer programming knowledge and skills to build sustainable solutions using technology.

Dev school was started with a focus on women empowerment to address the great gender imbalance in the IT world. She launched an IndieGoGo campaign to set up her venture and has employed a team of software developers.

She has been featured on various media outlets such as CNN and Leaders Afrique.  Blessing hopes to develop a three-month program designed to train world-class African developers.

 

Support Martha on her entrepreneurial journey.
