In a bid to help finance the education of less privileged children across the work, team ‘Brain Squad’, a group of five Nigerian schoolgirls has built an app to help.
The members of the group include Jadesola Kassim, Munachiso Chigbo, Pandora Onyedire, Ayomikun Ariyo and Ivana Mordi.
The girls, whose ages range between 10 and 11, are from Standard Bearers School, Lekki Phase 1, in Lagos.
The Brain Squad represented the country at the 2019 Technovation World Pitch summit, which held on August 15, 2019, in California, after creating an app called ‘Handsout’ which sources funds and educational materials from people around the world and gives them to children who can’t afford them.
