Meet the Founder
Meet the visionary behind Yoruba for Kidz, Tiwalade Ajeigbe—a woman whose love for children and dedication to promoting heritage pride have ignited a journey dedicated to inspiring a love for the Yoruba language and culture.
Tiwalade’s journey began with her own children, who were born and being raised in the United States of America. As they grew, she started to realize the need for them to be confident and take pride in all of who they were and she saw the need to have them connect with their roots. She decided as a first step to being intentional about introducing them to Yoruba Language, their heritage language.
In that Journey, Tiwalade recognized the need for Yoruba resources that not only taught Yoruba but did so in a way that captured the interest of kids in this new age.
Tiwalade works as a Process Engineer with a BS in Chemical Engineering and a Masters in Business Administration. Combining her technical flair, her business background with her creative spirit, she created this comprehensive platform, Yoruba for Kidz , that makes learning Yoruba a joyous experience for kids.
Beyond Yoruba for Kidz, Tiwalade extends her impact to adults through Yoruba for Adults camps, recognizing the importance of language preservation across all age groups. Her vision is to create a comprehensive platform that caters to both children and adults, fostering a community where the Yoruba language and culture is celebrated , enjoyed , and passed down through generations.
