Our Tutors will be visiting the schools to lecture the kids based on ICT Curriculum available by our Enterprise. Our mode of Tutoring is through multimedia medium (Laptops or Tablets, projectors and Screens), because we believe graphical teaching is easily absorb by kids than the teaching board available in schools. The program will run with every school term i.e. 14 weeks of school activities. On every 7th week of the school term, a competition will take place at the Local Government level for all schools in a particular local government that subscribe to this program. And at the end of the 14th week there will also be a state competitions for every top runner schools at every local government in that state. Every Competition level is attracted to incentive prices, Scholarship grants for kids in those top runner schools of the competition.

Im Oyeku Ebenezer Damilare, I was born on 2nd January 1988 in the city of Ibadan, Oyo state, Nigeria, West-Africa. My parent names are Mr. and Mrs. Michael Oyeku, I am the last of the four kids of my parent. My parent arent privileged to have a good education but they value it so much that they endeavor that everyone of their kids will be educated. I was privilege to attend good elementary school down to high school years. After my graduation in high school I was privilege to take an ICT Scholarship exam with an Information Technology institute (NIIT) and I was privilege to an outstanding winner of the scholarship to study Oracle 10g Database administrator. After my training I was certified as Oracle 10g Professional Administrator from Oracle University. That achievement triggered my interest in ICT as a Career. Years later I was also graduate as Professional Diploma in Software Engineering and I was able to go for my Bachelors Degree in Computing Sciences at the University of Greenwich, UK. I graduated in as a BSc Holder in June 2012. Motivation: My motivation came from my childhood, past job experiences, Educational achievement, Travels and horrible experience of my health issue some years back. All the above stated condition motivated me to decide that I want to make a change in Africa most especially by starting from my Country of Citizenship (Nigeria). I believe that despite the corrupt leader in the Political System of the Country I can make a difference by equipping the kids with the knowledge I have acquired in the past educational and Life experiences.
