Title: Lambda School Africa Pilot Programme


  • Lambda School is opening applications for the first time to students from Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa in partnership with Paystack, BuyCoins, Cowrywise, CredPal, PiggyVest, Thrive Agric, VertoFX, and Wallets Africa.

If you're accepted, this is what you get:

  • An immersive, 9 month full stack software development training program with live interactive online classes, at no upfront cost
  • During the program, you'll receive a membership to a co-work space near you so you have access to reliable electricity and internet
  • After the program, you'll have the chance to be hired by the participating companies
  • If you're hired by Paystack, CredPal, or Thrive Afric, those companies will pay the cost of your schooling. If you're hired by another company, you'll pay back 10% of your income for 5 years, but only if you're making more than $15k a year

This opportunity is open to citizens of Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa who're:
