The Christopher Kolade Foundation (CKF) was founded in 1997, as a platform through which its founder, Dr. Christopher Kolade, would continue to make contributions to the development of Nigeria. Guided by an enduring legacy of integrity, professionalism, professional ethics, and continuous learning that Dr. Kolade is known for, the Foundation focuses on Education as its key strategic initiative. Particular attention is given to promoting Girl-Child Education (specifically science, technology, engineering, mathematics, music and agriculture), Leadership and Governance Education, Christian and Theological Education and Education in Inter-faith Relations. The Foundation also aims to make contributions in improving public education and literacy levels in Nigeria.
Students are immersed in hands-on interactive learning in electronics programming and mobile games development.
The one-day event features exhibitions of the girls’ projects, and inspiring panels of young girls and women in STEM,including SHE participants.
