My dear sisters, friends and supporters, I am excited to share some good news with you. It feels good when your community recognizes and appreciates your change making efforts, hard work and consistency in your activities.
I am expanding myDigital Action Campaign, sharing the work I am doing on social media and sharing the video I produced, as a result I have received a lot of invites to train girls in other towns in Cameroon.
Given my financial limitations it has not been possible to respond to all the requests. Since then I have been searching for funding opportunities to make this possible.
“Bring a Girl to STEM” is a Cameroon based campaign to give girls ages 10 to 25 equal access to opportunities to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)#STEM4Girls
After launching the first part of my Digital Action Campaign on May 4th 2017 a lot of people started contacting me for collaboration and partnership on projects aimed at empowering women and girls.
With regular updates about the progress of my activities for “Bring a Girl to STEM” many more people have become very interested in the work I am doing.
I am on a mission to eliminate the gender disparities that are greatest in STEM fields that have two prominent qualities. The first is a perceived masculine culture and the second is a lack of course experience before college.

By launching the “Bring a Girl to STEM” campaign I have raised curiosity in Cameroon about the STEM programs at CYEED. www.cyeed.net. I am very delighted to see parents very anxious to come discover what we offer during our trainings especially after following us on local radio station.

As part of my Digital Action Campaign “Bring a Girl to STEM” the main objective is to recruit and retain more female students in STEM,encouraging women and girls to peruse a career in STEM fields.
