(Business in Cameroon) - From July 31 to August 3, 2019, in Ngaoundéré, more than 1,000 young Cameroonians took part in the third edition of the holiday camp organized by the ministry of posts and telecommunications.

During the IT camp, the young residents of Ngaoundéré and neighboring towns were trained on the responsible use of social media. “Young citizens, Cameroon counts on you to promote harmony on social media,” minister Minette Libom Likeng said in the closing speech.

IT holiday camps are part of the actions initiated by my ministerial department to encourage and boost ICT literacy, in reply to the head of state’s call for collective mobilization to bridge the gap of Cameroon’s lateness in the digital sector. They are outreach programs to teach ICTs to young people in rural and semi-urban areas. It is in line with the government’s strategy to develop the digital economy. The goal is to encourage and boost ICT literacy but to also promote responsible use,” she added.

Taking the opportunity of her visit in the framework of that region, on August 1, 2019, the minister visited all the main institutions under her ministerial department in Ngaoundéré.
