IA-Foundation is a UK registered educational charity set up to transform lives through education in Nigeria and Africa.

IA-Foundation was founded on the 30th of January 2019 by Ibironke Adeagbo, a renowned chartered accountant to celebrate her 50th birthday, because she has a passion for education and removing any barrier that could prevent a child from accessing good education. Ibironke is an accounting graduate and has three accountancy qualifications herself. She has risen to the top of her profession and career. However, when she told her father she wanted to study accountancy, her father was apprehensive and said it was too difficult a course for a woman and it was a man’s profession. Ibironke was absolutely determined to prove her father wrong. Now that she has realized her potential, she wants to put a torch in the path of others to lighten their pathways too and remove any barrier that could prevent them from achieving their potential and aspirations. She believes education drives the economy and educational institutions are the engine room where this happens. Therefore, she believes everyone must have access to good education. She believes if anyone develops a passion for learning, such a person will not cease to grow. Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself. An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.
