Hi @nurudeenpopoola, at first it may appear counterintuitive that we are building our continent by powering teams that are outside of it. However, Andela's growth has been a major catalyst in the growth of our local tech ecosystems. Our impact is visible in the growth of the developer population (we have added 500+ developers to the ecosystem in the last 3 years), and in the tech community (through meetups like ForLoop).
The experiences that our developers are exposed to while working with global companies ensure that they build best-in-class skills that would be instrumental in solving our biggest local problems using technology.
Like @senisulyman explained in his post, "From their experiences building world-class tech products for our partner companies, they are preparing to elevate technology products built in Africa. While doing this, they are already contributing locally, through initiatives like TeenCode, which supports schools in preparing teenagers for tech-enabled futures. Our developers are the heart and soul of our organization, and they are the future of our continent. We’ve always believed in them; we’re glad the world increasingly does so too."
Our mission to advance human potential by powering today's teams and investing in tomorrow's leaders is deeply ingrained in our DNA. We currently power some African tech companies and will continue to partner with local companies as the ecosystem grows.
