We target young, vibrant and innovative Cameroonians, stimulate and sustain their interest in pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We challenge them to design projects that are

We have them join a network of young leaders to ensure lifelong learning and collaboration as well as pair them with mentors and sponsors to support their life’s work.
