About Refactory

Refactory is training the next generation of tech talents and experts in Uganda.

The program is made by and for tech companies, and teaches the skills needed to secure a career in tech.

What is Refactory?

In 2018, Clarke International University, tech company Laboremus Uganda, and NGO Fontes Foundation partnered to bring Uganda a program to develop software development skills tailored to make youth job-ready.

The “skills gap” between what schools and universities teach and what employers need is a known problem for employers in the ICT-sector.

Refactory is an answer to this problem. It is, in essence, a tech program that offers a comprehensive nine-month program that will give university graduates the skillsets required to lift the quality of the Ugandan tech sector.

Together we want to build a tech sector in Uganda that can compete on a global scale!
