Trained By Tunapanda

The focus of our institution, Trained by Tunapanda is comprised of our in-house technical, professional, and business training services equipping young people with the skills to solve local and global issues.

We are an educative institution delivering 3 month intensive learning experiences in tech, design, and business. There is no cost to the trainees to learn, and to date we have graduated over 100 young people.


Tunapanda Apprentices learn the crafts of coaching, teaching, lesson planning, and administering a learning community. We also enhance passions that we discovered as trainees by engaging in further practical learning in our “advanced track” areas of choice.


Through our established relationships with local organizations and through our interview, business pitching, and CV coaching, over 85% of our graduates have gained meaningful employment.


Tunapanda Journeymen bear full responsibility for all areas of administering the learning community, earn income to sustain the community, continue learning through practical projects, conduct research, and replicate our model with partners in other locations.

Tech Dada

There’s a large gender gap in computer science and STEM fields in general, and we look to narrow that gap through our Tech Dada program. We visit local schools and hold workshops to spread interest in computing to young women throughout Nairobi.
