5 Nigerian girls at 2019 Technovation World Pitch Summit need our votes!

Five young Nigerian girls have earned themselves a slot in the 2019 Technovation World Pitch Summit that is being held at Silicon Valley in California, U.S.A. after they emerged as finalists for creating an app to help finance an education for indigent children called “Handsout”.

The five kids whose ages range between ages 10 and 11 are: Pandora Onyedire, Ayomikun Ariyo, Ivana Mordi, Jadesola Kassim and Munachiso Chigbo of Standard Bearers School, Lekki phase 1, Lagos.

They already won the State, Regional & National Level for innovation with their App and are currently in Silicon Valley at the global finals.

There are already children benefiting from the App the girls have created and many more will.

Apart from the chance to win scholarships, the kids will also have opportunities to network, go on field trips and workshops and I can imagine they will even be the better for it.

Now the girls have gotten to the finale and they need our votes!!
