Expanding my Project and Reaching Out to Girls in the South West Region of Cameroon.

I am expanding my Digital 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

Part 6: Thinking Globally and Building Locally using my Video.

Today I am launching a very important and inspiring part of my campaign. It is an online activity on social media and offline at CYEED digital training center that will amplify my project worldwide. 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.

Part 5: STEM Mentoring Program: “#STEMingUp a Sister” to Create a Smoother Path for our Future Techies.

Today I am launching a STEM Mentoring Program at CYEED called “#STEMingUp a Sister”. 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. I am on a mission to narrow the gender Tech divide, breaking stereotypes about STEM education for girls by teaching them basic programming and digital skills early on with the assistance of mentors to guide our girls.
