About us

Millions of young Africans are late bloomers, primarily on account of being exposed to opportunities much later in life and this is a gap the Foundation seeks to pull the plug on.

Founded by techpreneur Khalil Halilu, the KSH Foundation is a non-profit organization that seeks to leverage technology and entrepreneurship and its role in early development.

With this, the foundation aims at providing enablers in the form of mentorship, technical/interpersonal assistance, and funding to young Nigerians who are driven to innovation in tech-related fields whilst helping create products and services with significant impact on development in Nigeria.

While the foundation believes in equity, it is also aware of the social challenges faced by women and as such focuses most of its program, particularly on women.

With the dream that Africa will one day pride herself on the inventions of her children, the KSH Foundation will constantly support and encourage outstanding innovation in the youth.


To constantly support and encourage outstanding innovation in the youths.


A day Africa prides herself on the inventions of her children.

Adolescents are growing up in a significantly different environment now than they were five to ten years ago. They’re affectionately known as digital natives, which means they easily pick up on digital trends and love the constant sharing made possible by modern networks. 

The KSH foundation has created a new initiative called TechBOX, a competition intended to inspire young adults who are tech-savvy and encourage them to compete and be recognized for their outstanding performance in a variety of tech activities. TechBOX is committed to helping young people have a deeper understanding of the history and ramifications of technology, as well as a greater sense of responsibility and respect for what’s possible in today’s world.
