The School of New Beginnings for young Cameroonians
A Simplon factory inaugurated in Douala on 15 April.
In Cameroon, as in other African countries, digital is on the rise. Yet the rapidly developing sector is sorely lacking in manpower. An opportunity for young people and populations remote from employment.
In view of this situation, the startup Simplon.co inaugurated a new training center on 15 April in Douala (Cameroon) alongside Société Générale Cameroun.
Digital professions as a lever for integration
A priority partner of Societe Generale Foundation’s programme in Africa, Simplon.co aims to develop the professional integration and employability of young people through digital professions. Committed to inclusive and united digital, the startup provides free training in the professions of developer, web integrator and digital referent.
Thirty young women and men constitute the first promotion, called “Inclusive Help Class - Inch Class”, of the new Cameroonian “factory”. In seven months, they will develop the professional skills adapted for their professional integration. A formula that has proven its effectiveness: on average, 9 out of 10 learners find a job at the end of their training.
