Isn’t that wonderful?

Yayandi has proven to be passionate about development and tech community building. He is currently part of different tech communities, making impacts. He guides and mobilizes young people for life changing opportunities.

In December 2019

Yayandi was featured on the British Council Nigeria’s blog post, as one of the 75 most inspiring stories by British Council Nigeria, in celebration of 75 years of cultural relations. Read up here.

Interestingly, during this COVID-19 lockdown and all the things that came with with, Yayandi of Africa, through Yandytech organized a Python Programming session, 100% free, for 6weeks to help students/young people develop new skill-set during this time.

With over 100 active participants, the session was a great success with everyone full of gratitude at the completion of the programme. They particularly enjoyed the exercise, take home assignments and ultimately could boast of an additional skill.

Who doesn’t love impact?

Well-done Yayandi of Africa.
