It was put together by Abiola Ilupeju and sponsored by the U.S. Consulate. Abiola is a very good and detailed software developer that I’ve had the opportunity to work with, and I’m sure this is a well-packaged programme that can make an impact in the lives of women. So, if you fit the bill, don’t hesitate to get more details on the project website and fill in your details once registration starts on October 8, 2016.
