The Center is situated in Mbouda Town, West region of Cameroon. The Founder, Mr Michael Bisong says, the centre will serve as a veritable tool to help bridge the digital divide in Cameroon. Many people who do not have the means to access such facilities will be able to do so free of charge.
The staff are now busy teaching both adults and young people, the basics of Information and Communication Technology skills. Most of the beneficiaries are from the majority English-speaking regions of Cameroon; where reports from the UN shows that around 530,000 people have fled their homes due to the ongoing crisis which broke out in 2016.
At the end of the training, the first batch will receive end-of-course attestations and financial support from the Bisong Foundation to start a business of their own. The Bisong Foundation would have contributed in her own way in combating youth unemployment in Cameroon which is said to be one of the factors responsible for irregular migration. The center is equipped with over 10 desktop computers, automatic laser printing machines, scanners, Heat Press T-shirt and mug printing machines amongst, others is now fully operational.
