There has never been a better time to bridge the skills gap among developers in Africa. According to TheNextWeb, it is well established that there’s a severe developer shortage in Africa. At Google, we have consistently invested in helping the developer and Startup community to get easy access to all the latest technology that is shaping the world today.
In March 2018, following our commitment to train 100K developers across the region in 5 years, we announced a 15,000 Google Africa Scholarship challenge to provide Android and Web development trainings to developers across Africa. We also announced the launch of the Developer Students Clubs. Through these programs more than 8,000 developers have received training to help build their web / mobile development skills, with more than 100 unique student stories describing the program’s impact on recipient’s career, employment, and even start-up creation.
But there’s still so much to do. This is why today, we are excited to announce a partnership with Pluralsight and Andela to support 10,000 aspiring and professional developers in Africa with a 4-month access to Android and Mobile web courses. This opportunity is open to successful graduates of the Google Africa Scholarship Challenge, Developer student clubs, GDGs and other aspiring and professional developers across Africa.
Pluralsight is a technology learning platform which will provide useful training content, while the Andela ALC program will provide mentorship to learners enrolled in this program. The aim of this program is to provide a continuous engagement platform to aspiring and existing developers in Africa on a track to become professional developers with skills that can get them through the Google certification to demonstrate job readiness.

Although it is still early days into our 100k commitment, the successes we have seen so far inspires and drives us to continue to launch new initiatives aimed at increasing the number of employable skilled software developers in Africa while striving to bridge the unemployment gap on the continent.
