This fully-funded scholarship is aimed at training internationally accepted IT engineers that will upon graduation be able to land highly-paid in-demand IT jobs worldwide or create problem-solving startups in Cameroon
While on her first working visit to Cameroon for this year 2020, the founder of Sunshine Africa Education and CEO of Seven Academy Mrs. Estelle Yomba remarked that she was proud the students are performing on the expected scale.
She made the remark after some level 2 students presented some class projects they had been working on using skills acquired in 5 months of training (Web fundamentals and front end web app development). However, the CEO was most elated as all the projects presented included technologies ranging from web fundamentals to artificial intelligence.
