Free IT Training in Bamenda
Since its creation, LOTI has provided basic IT training to youths in Bamenda, Cameroon. Targeting mainly out-of-school youths and young students, this training goes to expand their opportunities to getting a better education and general exposure in a significantly globalised world. LOTI uses this training program to introduce youths to education via the internet and to help them gain basic computer skills typically required in the job market.
The objectives of this IT training program are:
There are more and more non-profits, associations, fellowships and enterprises founded and built by youth leaders by the day, and LOTI sees a need for these young visionaries to master the art of leadership in their organisations and communities. LOTI organises leadership seminars in different town annually, bringing together youth leaders of different vocations and interests, to discuss pertinent leadership issues that affect both their organisations and the communities they live in.
These seminars have key note speakers of commendable report, and who show commendable leadership skills. This is a forum for youth leaders to learn from the best, and also create strong networks for sustainable development of Cameroon.
The objectives of these seminars are:
In LOTI, we believe that the best way to build a man into an effective leader is to instil these qualities in him from a tender age, right unto maturity. The erudition program will enable us target a limited number of youths and build then from the elementary level to the level of career development. Underprivileged orphan children from different Cameroonian rural communities will be included in the program once in five years to be built as effective leaders, with a plough-back mentality driven in them to use what they achieve from the program to bring development to their community of origin. These fellows will be given full scholarships covering all the basic need of primary education up to high school, and given professional training in their area of interest.
The objectives of this program are:
In partnership with the Africa Nova Centre for Democracy (ANCED), LOTI offers free career and personal development orientation to youths. This program is linked to the Free IT training we offer, better preparing the students we work with, and other interested youths to identify their purpose and properly chart the course of their lives. These seminars hold on the second and fourth Wednesdays of every month from 11am to 2pm.
