Pan-African digital payment company, Interswitch on Thursday, January 31, 2019 launched its InterswitchSPAK Volunteer Drive in Ajuwon High School, Ajuwon and Community High School, Ojodu-Abiodun, Ogun State, as part of the company’s ongoing InterswitchSPAK 1.0 competition.
This activity, which featured Interswitch staff, teaching science subjects in select public secondary schools, is aimed at promoting STEM education, as well as, encouraging a culture of volunteerism.
Oremeyi Akah, Chief Core Operations Officer, Interswitch, who volunteered, said the opportunity to inspire young people to better engage with, and continue to study STEM subjects, and to also explore STEM careers, was the motivation behind her participation.
She encouraged students to adopt STEM education and its application, stating that its relevance in the real world cannot be overemphasized, as STEM has the power to transform lives and societies.
The principals of the participating schools could not hide their excitement and gratitude as they appreciated the entire Interswitch Group.
Mrs Oshewa Omolara of Ajuwon Senior High School said she hopes to see more of this initiative in the future and commended Interswitch Group for making a difference in the education sector.
Emuobosa Akpene, CSR/Events and Sponsorship Specialist, Interswitch Group, said that the volunteer drive was created to compliment the InterswitchSPAK initiative, “As it allows us the opportunity to further promote the learning and adoption of STEM education, by engaging with many more students that may necessarily not engage directly with the InterswitchSPAK quiz competition” she said. Emuobosa thanked all Interswitch staff who took part in the exercise, as well as the schools for being great hosts. She concluded by reiterating Interswitch Groups’ commitment to advancing and supporting quality STEM education in Africa.
You can watch the finals of the InterswitchSPAK 1.0 competition on Saturday, February 9, 2019 on the following stations: 6pm on AIT, 8pm on TVC Lagos, 9pm on EBS Edo, 8pm on OSRC Akure and 7:00pm on Africa Magic Channel 154, with a repeat broadcast on Tuesday at 3:00pm on Africa Magic.
The blockchain brings new financing options to the business market. For example, Bitcoin Cash casino has adapted to only using cryptocurrency. This way, it makes it easier for their customers to deposit and withdraw in a BCH casino. Entrepreneurs have taken note of this and are looking to invest more in crypto than in fiat markets.
