Moresu Mamani Bitrus is a software developer who enjoys coding and community services. He is also an Alumnus of Kennedy-Lugar Youth and Exchange Study (KL-YES) program: an initiative of the United State Department of States. He has volunteered in several community activities such as teaching deaf people computer skills, promoting good nutrition to mothers of malnourished children in Bauchi amongst many others.
Moresu was the winner of Accelerate Labs – Stream 1 in North East region hosted in Bauchi, and he shares his experience on the program:
“My entrepreneurship journey started when I was serving as a Corps member in Pankshin, Plateau State. I was posted to a secondary school and assigned as a Mathematics teacher. I enjoyed the classroom interaction but the grading and lesson plan became very cumbersome and challenging. I also noticed that other teachers of the school also faced the same difficulties.
At that point, I saw the need for providing a sustainable solution to the problem, in form of a school management automated system.
Participating in Accelerate Labs brought out the business opportunity in my idea by equipping me with the right knowledge, information, tools, and training which this has enabled me to produce the prototype of the software. I am grateful for this opportunity and look forward to expanding this idea with the training that I have received.”
