Google gives South African non-profit Siyavula $2.5 million
Google CEO Sundar Pichai recently visited Lagos in Nigeria, and announced the allocation of £2.5 million in funding to Siyavula – a South African maths and science venture, TechCrunch reported. The funding forms part of Google.org’s allocation of £20 million in grants over the next five years to non-profit organisations that are “working to improve lives across Africa.” Nigerian professional development startup Gidi Mobile also received funds of £2.5 million.
Google.org will assign another £5 million through its African Impact Challenge in 2018, it said.
