SESEWA was founded by Adekunbi Adeoye while in the University in 2009. She had just completed an internship which did not come easy. Realizing the importance of an internship and the lack of organizations opening up their structures to include internships, Adekunbi set out to make the difference.
SESEWA is Nigeria’s 1ST Internship focused organisation and has since evolved into solving the continent’s youth unemployment challenges through several platforms. SESEWA’s programs have a unique approach with a sustainable model to solving unemployment in Africa, one person at a time.
An internship through SESEWA allowed me to step out of my comfort zone. I always thought it was a big deal getting an internship but SESEWA helped to make it easier for me. It involved only a simple test, an interview and an intensive training.
My job shadowing experience through SESEWA gave me a comprehensive knowledge of my career path. It gave me a workplace experience and the opportunity to hone and acquire the skills needed for my career
The major highlight of my internship was that SESEWA helped me to stay on track throughout the program. They gave me the courage to start a project from scratch and see it through to the finished product. With an internship through them, I learnt to take leadership roles and provide solutions to problems. My award as the best intern of the year encouraged me intensely to aim higher in life.
