Ham Serunjogi, a Ugandan from a relatively stable family, recalled the challenges his father had to go through to transfer money to him to pay for his swimming lessons fees. At the time, he had been selected to be part of the Ugandan Youth Olympic team and his father had to travel to South Africa to pay his swim coach in cash while they were training there, according to Forbes.

After high school in Uganda, Serunjogi moved to Iowa, United States, for his university education where he met Maijid Moujaled at Grinnell College, a Ghanaian computer science major who was running a popular coding group.
