EkoBits Academy was set up by Work In Progress Alliance and Poise Nigeria in 2016. The concept is to train ambitious young people in a wide range of disciplines from programming to visual design, brand development, photography and video making.

The target group of the Bits Schools are young people from underprivileged communities, these youths are faced with many socio-economic challenges that hinder them from progressing in life and making meaningful contribution to their societies.
