Founded in 2017, Plugstuck is a creative tech start-up company, created to serve the need
in Africa for innovation and technology-based solutions to third
world problems, starting from Nigeria.
Located in the heart of Obio-Akpor LGA, Rivers State, Nigeria, has incorporated with the
Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigeria and is a member of the Netherlands-African
Business Council (NABC).
For over 4 years, the mission of Plugstuck has been to provide digital B to B
(business to business) and B to C (business to customer) solutions in varying capacities,
ranging from Website Development, Mobile Apps, Progressive Web Applications, Digital Marketing,
SEO, and Training Programs targeted at young, aspiring content creators, developers, bloggers,
and web designers via our brainchild (The Training for the Next Level, Exclusive Blogging
Summit, We Are Coding).
Why our campaign 'We Are Coding 2022' is valuable to you?
The Nigeria Bureau of Statistics (NBS) says 27.1% of Nigerians are unemployed. With a
population of over 200 million, this means 54.2 million Nigerians are out of jobs.
Every year, Nigeria produces about 500,000 graduates coming to compete for unavailable jobs.
Unfortunately, a large majority of Nigerian youths are grossly ill-equipped to become a
part of solving this problem. No thanks to the Nigerian Institution and the “bunch of
job-seeking graduates” it churns out every year.
At Plugstuck, we are passionate about driving development in the African grassroots tech
ecosystem with training solutions and are committed to training and empowering high school
students, graduates, and working-class professionals with the relevant marketable I.T skills.
Our mission is to train a minimum of 120 trainees in this edition of We Are Coding 2022
(WAC2022) and at least 2,000 trainees per year and equip them with employable technology
skills through personalized learning solutions, to get them on the pathway to rendering
services and building valuable products.
This training will span a period of 8 weeks, starting on August 15, 2022 to October 3, 2022.
The timing of this program is apt, seeing that millions of college students are currently
idling away at home due to the ASUU (Academic Staff Union of Universities) strike in
Nigeria. This program affords them a rare opportunity to acquire essential tech. skills
that are sadly not a part of the educational curriculum at the college level.
The planning for this program started in February 2022 with a strong desire to contribute
to the grassroots tech space in Africa by training interested persons to become skilled with the
requisite Internet and Tech, (IT) skills, needed to survive, thereby giving them access to global
We have since then achieved the following:
Securing a training center to use as our venue for the 8 weeks period of the training.
Graphic design for our publicity campaign.
Sourcing for resource persons to handle the courses we offer.
Developing a publicity plan.
Branded outfits for our school-to-school publicity.
Signed partnership with landing.jobs(Europe) and click up (San Diego, United States).
Secured Grant Sponsorship of $1,200 (that is 50% discount for 12 participants) from Caih
So far we have started our publicity campaign and we have a number of interested
candidates who have filled out our registration form and joined our social media
groups on Whatsapp and Telegram. We share information related to the training program
including basic tutorials to spur their interest.
We hold virtual meetings with our prospects every Saturday from 5:00pm to 6:00pm (WAT) to
discuss the benefits of the training program, and give advice to those who may have
difficulty choosing what courses to take.
We have also introduced our referral program to social media influencers among our
prospects, offering a discount on the courses for referring their friends and colleagues.
At the end of We Are Coding 2022, we hope to certify a minimum of 120 trainees armed with
sufficient skills to get them started on their chosen IT career paths either as freelancers
or full-time employees/interns, with mentoring, and symposiums from our International
partners, as well as post-trainee-support from our community.
