Ishango.ai in Partnership with DataCamp to Bridge the Skills Gap by Providing Free Subscriptions to Aspiring African Data Scientists

We are thrilled to announce a new partnership between Ishango.ai and DataCamp, focused on supporting the development of data science talent in Africa.

As part of this partnership, DataCamp will be providing 100 scholarships to Ishango.ai, aimed at empowering aspiring data scientists across the continent with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their careers. Scholarship recipients will gain access to over 400 DataCamp courses on the latest technologies, practice exercises to sharpen their skills, assessments to test their knowledge of the subject matter, and projects that stem from real-world queries.

“We are very excited about our partnership with DataCamp. At Ishango.ai we know firsthand that there is a wealth of talent across Africa that remains untapped due to a lack of upskilling and job opportunities. With the support of DataCamp, Ishango.ai will be able to expand its offerings and reach even more aspiring data science talents across the continent.
 — Eunice Baguma Ball, Co-Founder, Ishango.
