Kabakoo Academies confirmed once again its position as an EdTech leader platform in Africa. Today it announces the launch of the first no-code training in West Africa. Leading tech learning platform in Africa becomes a pioneer of this growing tech trend enabling people to design apps without coding. This new training should boost its learners’ employability and their local entrepreneurship projects. A bold approach that earned Kabakoo the Zoom EdInnovation Award.
The first batch for Kabakoo first no-code training in West Africa consist of twenty learners at its Bamako campus. This intensive “FullStack” program is designed and delivered in partnership with Contournement, the European leader in no-code training. Kabakoo bets on no-code skills to supercharge its learners’ employability and their local entrepreneurship projects.
Each learner will acquire full proficiency in no-code tools to create websites, mobile apps, automation and data management projects via coaching from word-class mentors. Co-designed with Contournement, the training aims at mastering key tools such as Zapier, Airtable, Adalo, Glide or Dorick, which will help learners to rapidly develop ambitious tech products (without having to code) to meet the needs of local communities and markets in the Sahel.
The Kabakoo engagement in the no-code segment is catalyzed by strong partnerships with, among others, the current leading no-code app Notion, which supports Kabakoo’s activities through its impact program.
Kabakoo reaffirms its leading role in the pan-African EdTech space by being the first to launch the no-code training in Africa. After being praised as a “School of the Future” by the World Economic Forum, Kabakoo has received the Zoom EdInnovation Award on March 1st, 2021, which recognizes “the boldest and brightest solutions supporting underserved students.” .Among the six global winners, it is the only organization on the African continent and the francophone world. This award formalizes the partnership between Kabakoo and Zoom, which becomes a key financial and tech partner for scaling up Kabakoo impact.
