Tedonjio Feukeng Kabrel, Foteping Kuiate Johann Gregore and Ntombi Mpah Pauline from Government Technical High School Douala-Bassa are the laureates of the second edition of the International Entrepreneurship Competition held in Rabat, Morocco from 31 March to 5 April 2022 before Morocco and Benin.
The three teenagers together with their mentors and supervisors were offered a solemn reception by Prof Nalova Lyonga, Minister of Secondary Education, on 18 April 2022 at the Distance Education Centre following their brilliant victory abroad. 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.
