She is so passionate about child education which spurred her into birthing her Kiek foundation; a foundation that caters for the needs of Women and vulnerable children by giving them access to free education among other things a child needs to be armed with.

While growing up, her immediate environment opened her mind to the ills militating against the positive growth of children caused by poverty and the increase in the number of out-of-school children. After analyzing the situation,  she and her team have taken it as a pet project with the launch of the KIEK foundation’s Rural Area Children and Teenagers in Information and Communication Technology (Ract-in-ICT) program, in collaboration with The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).

With the current demand for ICT guru’s across the world, she is catching them young by arming them with free tutorial classes where children are taught the rudiments of coding, using ICT for global impact and also persuading them from using it for fraudulent means. The event is currently holding at the Junior Secondary School, Apo resettlement with the theme; ‘Bridging the Gap through Sustainable ICT Skills’, the RACT-in-ICT. The program started on Monday, 9th August 2021 and will end on Saturday, 21st of August 2021.
