PIN traces its roots back in Ajegunle, Nigeria, where it started operations in 2007 from a tiny cybercafé known as Stadnet.
As a way of giving back to the Ajegunle community and recognising notable individuals who have played vital roles in Paradigm Initiative’s early beginning in Ajegunle, PIN has established the Ajegunle Legacy Project, aptly named after the community.
