Volta was birthed due to the desire we had as a team together to help those in need within Africa. A key member in Volta (Adedayo Charis) grew up in Nigeria, Africa. He had to endure the hardships growing up as a young boy that no child should ever have to endure in life. Life within the country of Nigeria is full of poverty and pain. With families having to choose between sending their children to school or having food for the family. For the majority of families in Nigeria, they can only afford to choose one of these two necessities in life.
Due to this reality, parents are forced to beg on the streets as well as work full-time jobs! Many mothers that see no other alternatives to resolve their issues resort to working as prostitutes just to earn the extra money needed to feed their family and pay their children school fees. In most modernized countries we have the luxury of paying either extremely low schooling fees or our government provides schools FREE to the public. This was one of the countless driving factors to why Volta was created.
The idea was simple... it was to create a company that designed gadgets that were so good, that the world would desire them time after time again and that company today is VOLTA!
For those who don't know, at Volta, we strive to give up to 40% of our earnings towards the ever increasing projects that we are actioning out within Nigeria and soon to be throughout the entire continent of Africa!
We are proud to say that on the 18th of May, 2018, we took our community efforts one step further by carrying out a medical outreach in Opebi, Ikeja community in South-Western Nigeria.
We gave out over 200 insecticide-treated mosquito nets, tested residents of this slum community for malaria and general health, and gave out medication. We know that this does not amount to world domination but we are keen to do as much as we can within communities that need this.
