Kabakoo is a no-code pioneer, the first EdTech in Africa to join this growing digital trend enabling people to design and deploy apps without coding. Dedicated to youth employment and entrepreneurship, Kabakoo bets on no-code skills to allow its learners to succeed in the local job markets.

March 16, 2021 – Committed to democratizing access to tech education for the African youths, Kabakoo has launched in March 2021 the first no-code training in West Africa for a batch 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.

Coached by word-class mentors, the learners will acquire full proficiency in no-code tools to create websites, mobile apps, automation and data management projects. 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.
