About Us

It all started with an audacity to imagine the world as it could be. We started "The Footwear Academy" in 2017 with the sole purpose of making leatherworks easy, affordable and accessible to young people with a core focus on women and people living with disabilities.

Prior to this time, knowledge transfer in the shoemaking industry in Nigeria was mainly through the apprenticeship system.
