InterSwitch and Slum2School Partner, donates STEM & Innovation Lab To Makoko Children

Ever heard of the Slum2School? This is an NGO focused on providing educational opportunities for kids in disadvantaged communities especially in Makoko area, a slum community in Lagos. Digital payments giant, Interswitch has partnered with Slum2School to provide a modern and world-class learning environment for the kids in that community.

The Makoko community is located on the coast of Yaba, just below and across the famous third mainland bridge in Lagos. With little or no access to clean water, electricity and schools, the small informal settlement of 150,000 (primarily) fisher-people is easily one of the most disadvantaged communities in Lagos. This is apparently why Interswitch and Slum2School chose to launch their initiative around there.

According to Punch Newspapers, the innovation lab, which is fitted with 50 computers, is situated at Adekunle Anglican School, along the main Makoko road that connects the community to the Yaba suburb.

“STEM help students learn things like critical thinking and problem solving, so they can be the next generation of leaders and innovators,” said Interswitch Group CEO, Mitchell Elegbe during the commissioning of the lab yesterday in Makoko.
