Welcome. Ẹ káàbọ̀. Marhaba. Sawubona. This is all we meant to express in our Karibu onboarding week at ALX.
From May 6th to May 13th, all over the continent – in our 8 core markets – over 30,000 learners from Casablanca to Johannesburg convened at the Karibu Opening Ceremony to officially begin their ALX tech journeys.
The immersive onboarding experience began with a blended session that connected all of our new learners to the story, mission and values of ALX and to one another, setting the foundation for their learning journey with us.
Our new learners were treated to an intimate fireside chat with the CEO and Founder of ALX, Fred Swaniker, where they had the rare opportunity to ask him all their burning questions. The events featured captivating performances, engaging discussions, and impactful opportunities for learners to build relationships with one another and the ALX team.
Virtually everything was fresh this Karibu week, as we took the chance to showcase the opening of our new tech hubs in our 8 cities across the continent. The sparkling new hubs are designed to address the crucial need for high-speed internet and infrastructure, offering a vibrant co-working environment that fosters productivity and peer support.
The Karibu week oriented learners into the ALX community as they commence their training in one of our 4 newly launched tech programmes:Data Analytics, Cloud Computing, and Salesforce Administrator, along with our new blended learning Software Engineering programme.
In total, over 32,000 new learners have begun their exciting journey of Doing Hard Things with ALX. Scroll down to feast your eyes on the Karibu highlights from every city - and keep up with the activities at @alxafrica on all social media platforms.
