MEET MLA – President/Co-Founder
Meet Ejiroghene – Instructor
Everyone calls me “Oki-Peter.” I am a trained Computer Engineer. The Visiola Foundation has given me an avenue to transform the lives of talented girls by teaching them about science and technology. Working as an Instructor at the Visiola Foundation has exposed me to the Intelligence and wit of girls whose only disadvantage is the lack of exposure and access to opportunities. I am happy with what I do and thrilled that I am contributing towards achieving SDG 5 by increasing the number of women in the STEM workforce.
Meet Israel – Operations Manager
I am a passionate “STEM evangelist” with the doggedness required to excel and help marginalized individuals and communities access enriching opportunities. I am a firm believer in the potential of Africa’s marginalized youth, and I am always eager to contribute to bridging the gender gap in technology, by empowering high-potential girls and young women. My work at the Visiola Foundation has been very fulfilling. Girls who previously had modest life aspirations are now pursuing STEM degrees in universities overseas and in Nigeria, while some have secured jobs and are contributing to the socio-economic development of the country. I feel both humbled and delighted to have played a role in helping them maximize their potential.
