Wow! We’re super excited to announce the launch of the Christad Foundation.
Are you a parent looking to inspire your kids to pursue an education in mathematics?

We’ve been working behind the scenes for months and we can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on!
The Christad Foundation was created with parents, maths students, teachers, undergraduates and secondary school administrators in mind. Our goal is to provide a platform that will seamlessly bring together people who love mathematics and desire to explore it in their daily lives.
Our team comprises of professional mathematicians who will mentor students on career choices and interests, guide students applying for international postgraduate scholarships and much more…
We’re also working on some awesome projects to help relate mathematical concepts to day-to-day real life situations
We can’t wait to share more with you, so stay tuned!
Last week, I volunteered for Christad Foundation, a nongovernmental organization passionate about building students interest in Mathematics. They are starting with secondary schools, rewarding best students in mathematics, creating maths clubs in schools, coaching them for international maths competitions like the Olympiad mathematics competition. The earliest memory I have of my interest in Mathematics is of my Dad teaching and helping with my assignments in primary school. I also had the privilege of representing my secondary School at the Cowbell Mathematics Competition. Though I didn’t major in Mathematics at the tertiary level, I’ve taught Mathematics at both Junior and Senior Secondary School level, I’ve also coached students for mathematics examination privately. Even now, Mathematics is a major part of my day-to-day life, either as a fashion designer, a tutor or as a researcher. The first trick to understanding Mathematics is to love it, it’s not something to be dreaded.
