My name is Florian Kouamou and I graduated from Georgia State University in Atlanta, with a B.B.A. in Computer Information Systems. I have always held a very high level of interest in everything that revolves around Computer Systems and New Technologies of Information.
One my personal objectives since a very young age was to create a nonprofit organization dedicated to better equip school facilities technologically (classrooms, labs, libraries, etc.) in Africa and other parts of the World where a lot of students today still have limited or no access to the forever evolving technologies of Communication and Information. In fact, a great number of students are learning about computers and information technology in the schools by means of books and lectures, but with no real hands-on experience due to the lack of adequate IT equipment to practice on.
As we all know, we are now in the era of information, and I firmly believe that students cannot afford to be left behind because of no or limited access to IT resources. To achieve excellence in the domain of Education nowadays, continuous access to reliable internet and the major educational resources of the World is very crucial. Our World is moving at a very fast pace, and all students need to be able to gain access to the latest and up-to-date information from anywhere in the Globe. I am confident this initiative will help close the great digital divide that still exists between developing and developed nations today.
This is a cause I am very passionate about because I have personally experienced it growing up and attending schools in Cameroon (a country in Central Africa.) Please help me, in any way that you can, reach these scholars and help them gain access to IT resources which are no longer a luxury, but a definite necessity for all students in this day and age. The opportunity to learn basic computer and Internet skills can be a life-changing one for students all across the globe — an opportunity that opens doors to a whole new world of information and possibilities, and which positions students to have a fighting chance for employment in these difficult economic times.
Tech-Savvy Scholars of The World Ltd. is legally registered as a nonprofit organization in the state of Georgia, U.S. My intent is to start with schools in Central Africa (which I am more familiar with) and expand to other regions of Africa and hopefully the World, as funds will permit.
I am in the process of finalizing all aspects of this initiative and will provide more detailed information as we move forward.
Thank you in advance for your support.
Florian Kouamou, Tech-Savvy Scholars of The World.
