There is high level of unemployment in Cameroon with inadequacy of advanced skills. There are enormous potentials across Africa as mobile technology has not been fully utilized to ensure information exchange amid the increasing population across Africa which is going to double by 2050. Projects are written with conformity with the policies governing the sectors in Cameroon. The main focus is on sustainability and projects that will create direct employment.
