Our Story

Skillup Africa started out of frustration!!!

For several years, Temitayo struggled to find good quality resources locally to fill roles at his company. Although there were always tons of young Africans applying for jobs, the majority of them did not have the right skills. This was so frustrating that he decided to select some of the unskilled young graduates seeking job openings randomly through a Facebook post, housed them in his home, and trained them.

In a few months, they had advanced significantly in their knowledge and were interning at his firm. He repeated this process with a second batch of young people and achieved even better results. Then, in 2019, together with a team of people committed to this mission, Skillup Africa was launched in six locations in Lagos and a major campus in Epe, offering evening and weekend classes. The success recorded in this pilot wasn’t as expected, so the team resorted to creating a model based on Temitayo’s initial experience, which proved to be highly successful.

In 2020, the first cohort of Skillup Africa’s (then graduate) training program started with 17 fellows, and the program has continued to grow since then. Although his team has been embarking on several training programs since 2013, the Euidem Foundation (the NGO powering Skillup Africa) was officially registered in 2020.



“It takes a community to raise a child” – African Proverb

Our approach to Skillup Africa is to create a platform for knowledge sharing between those who know and those who need to know while also connecting those who want to work to those who need them.

We are building an institution that allows Africans who are advanced in their Tech careers to help raise a new generation of young Africans who are interested in kickstarting their careers in Tech. An institution by Africans for Africans (and the world)

Skillup Africa is powered by a community


Facilitators teach the in-class sections and guide the fellows through the curriculum all through their learning journey


Our mentors are professionals at the peak of their careers volunteering to share their experiences and knowledge with the fellows serving as a huge pillar of support to them as they grow.


Our Advisors help in our decision making helping us consistently find solutions that allow us to serve Skillup Africa fellows better and increase our impact.


We have relationship and career coaches who help us lead our soft skills training and also provide one on one support to the fellows in order to increase their productivity.


Our international learning partners provide us with a pool of seasoned trainers who create the baseline content with which our students learn in addition to the in-class sessions by the facilitators.
