Folashade Fapohunda, worked in a hospital as an accountant but COVID19 cases started to increase and she was at risk. The hospital closed down and she lost her job. She casually picked up an interest in Graphic design. That was when she came across the Ingressive For Good (I4G), a non-profit equipping young Africans in need with tech skills to help them impact and contribute to the development of Africa, socially and economically. At this time, I4G had partnered with Coursera, the world’s leading online learning platform to offer scholarships to 5000+ African youths in tech. Folashade enrolled in the Coursera design courses. These courses gave her the confidence she needed to start freelancing and so far, she has had over 3 paying design clients, with payments worth more than her salary as an accountant.
Ingressive For Good (I4G) is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating and increasing the earning power of African youth through tech training and resources.
The Chief Operating Officer (COO) of I4G, Sean Burrowes, is available for interviews about how to empower the African Youth in tech.
