She is Nelly Cheboi, a stunning CNN Hero of the Year 2022 who resigned her software engineering job in the United States to build computer laboratories for poor rural schoolchildren in Africa.
She is the Founder and CEO of TechLit Africa, an organization that creates computer laboratories in rural classrooms using refurbished computers and now serves 10 schools in Kenya.
Nelly Cheboi grew up in rural Kenya, where she often went hungry and missed school because her single mother couldn’t afford it.
Cheboi eventually earned a college scholarship in America, did odd jobs to support her family, and discovered her interest for computer science.
