We exist, because technology empowers all people —including those with low education and limited opportunities.
TechLit Africa founders, Nelly and Cheboi on their reflection of being a couple and building TechLit

Tyler and I met at our first engineering jobs. I grew up in abject poverty, in Mogotio, Kenya. Although I didn’t use a keyboard until I was eighteen, I now enjoy a successful career as a software engineer. I believe, through technology, my African community can find a sustainable solution to poverty.

As a couple and software engineers, we believe adoption of technology is the most effective equalizer.

Tyler is a self-taught programmer from Shabbona, Illinois. Though he didn’t pursue a software career early on, he was able to learn all the skills he now uses daily from freely available content online. Tyler is proof that a motivated person can gain skills if they have access to the right technology and content
