(Business in Cameroon) - Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF - Francophone University Association) recently signed with the Orange Foundation in Cameroon, an agreement to create a Fablab in the Francophone digital campus of Yaoundé, we learn from reliable sources. The opening of this structure called “Ongola Fablab” is scheduled for April 2017, it is whispered at AUF.

“Ongola Fablab”, Orange explains, “is about providing a space and prototyping material to facilitate the implementation of ideas and acquisition of skills and knowledge through digital practice to underprivileged targets and young innovators”.

In addition to this first partnership, we learn, Orange Cameroun through its foundation, and AUF should soon sign a new agreement to, among other objectives, “contribute to the development of a knowledge-based digital economy within universities and tertiary education establishments in Cameroon, through support and assistance with new education technology and remote training, to solve the student boom problem”.
