At press time, Hon. NJUME Peter had this to say: “We cannot rely on UNESCO all the time for financial help. It is true that during the past years, we were talking of financial constrains caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and the hosting of AFCON. I think that this time around, the government should be able to know that education is primordial for an emergent country like Cameroon, so they have to improve or step up the budgetary allocation for the Ministry of Secondary Education.”

This was in the presence of Boniface Bayaola, Secretary of State in the Ministry of Secondary Education in charge of Teacher’s Training.

During the event, the young entrepreneurs presented their award-winning electronic wristband. The device which consists of a printed circuit-board can be activated in time of distress to call for help. The project idea was developed within the framework of the “Schule-Z” programme, an initiative which seeks to nurture and build soft and entrepreneurial skills in school-going youths at the secondary level.

The innovative electronic wristband project borne by these budding entrepreneurs caught the eye of the jury of the competition. They were granted scholarships that will enable them to fine-tune their entrepreneurial skills in one of the prestigious Moroccan Universities.

Secondary Education Minister equally acknowledged the promoter of “Schule-Z” programme for his efforts in bringing in the missing link between school and the business world. Proud of this achievement, Prof Nalova Lyonga encouraged students to tap on all technological facilities that are made available to them and to adhere to discipline, hardwork and creativity in order to honour the huge investments the Government of the Republic is making to secure their future.

MINESEC Goes Solar to Spur Distance Education Nationwide

TakuEnergy Company Limited and LMK Energy Cameroon take the commitment to support the Ministry of Secondary Education (MINESEC) in carrying forward this valuable goal.

1

This was materialised on Friday, 8 April 2022, at the Distance Education Centre, through the signing of Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) between the Ministry of Secondary Education and TakuEnergy Company Limited and LMK Energy Cameroon, two national companies dealing in the provision of sustainable energy solutions.

The partnership is to install customized solar power supply ecosystems in secondary schools and to build the capacities of students in maintaining solar power equipment. The two vital objectives pursued are to foster distance learning and to arouse students’ interest in solar power engineering by enabling students familiarise themselves with solar energy.

Owing to the crises witnessed over the past few years, Distance Education is fast becoming the preferred teaching mode in order to preserve children’s rights to education. Consequently, free and permanent power supply is a precondition to access digital educational contents so that no student should be left behind regardless of their location.

It is to preserve this fundamental right that, MINESEC through Professor Nalova Lyonga, Minister of Secondary Education, entered into a public-private partnership with TakuEnergy Company Limited and LMK Energy Cameroon, to supply solar energy in secondary schools.

Speaking during the event, Hamadou Soufouyanou and Taku Alain, Chief Executive Officers of LMK Energy Cameroon and TakuEnergy Company Limited respectively, commended Prof Nalova Lyonga’s unstoppable drive for innovation and thanked her for giving their companies the opportunity to support MINESEC in implementing the National Development Strategy 2020-2030 which is so dear to the Head of State, H.E. Paul Biya.
