Getting Youths In the Picture: youths of Zangtembeng, the Meta clan and volunteers will help in the training process of their mothers and sisters by explaining to them in the languages the best understand and serving as home teachers to help them through the learning process while at the same time learning something
. Share their #ThereAfter stories and experience on how knowing how to use the internet and computers have helped them
. Join educational youth online communities like Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
. Teach rural and poor community women how to use computers and their digital phones: 100 women are able to use computers after the 3 months training and have greater mastery of their digital phones . Poor rural women become digitally empowered: 100 women are directly empowered. Thousands are indirectly empowered through the training.
. Pass-It-On Activities: Each participant trains another 5 persons; male/female/youths: Participants pass on their new knowledge by training another 5 persons each thus increase the direct impact to 500 people being digitally empowered.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Bridging the digital gender gap is a critical step toward the vision of a thriving Africa yet women are up to 50 percent less likely than men to be online. This designed solution is to enable hundreds of rural women and girls to benefit from access to technology and use their skills to build a better Cameroon for all.
As a 27 year old, I have a passion to empower people to step out of poverty by proposing solutions to basic challenges around them. I am the Founder of Denis Miki Foundation (www.facebook.com/denismikifoundation)and a holder of a MA in International Relations option International Communication and Public Action and a BSc in Nursing. As a social entrepreneur I work to reduce poverty, hunger, unemployment, inequalities, improve health and education through empowerment means. I am passionate about sustainably developing youths, orphans and women. I currently facilitate capacity building trainings, women and youth empowerment trainings, community and rural development outreach programs. This projects and programs have increased impact substantially and has impacted over 700 youths, 200 women and has made it possible for me to receive invitations to facilitate more trainings through partnership with other organisations.
