About Last Year’s Event :
Pictured above is South West regional delegate for Employment and Vocational Training opening the event.
Last year’s session witnessed a “Bank Note Challenge” launched by FELA president, Madam Fotabe Elmine.
In this challenge, participants had to answer the question “what can you do with 10.000frs bank note?” – the answer to this question included an implementation of the idea conceived. This was a representation of the entrepreneurial abilities FELA seeks to build in Cameroon youths.
Participant’s thoughts led to inventions, products and brands which were showcased and sold at the event. Products like traditional wears, coconut oil and African foot wears as seen below:
These activities laid the groundwork for these entrepreneurs who till date produce these products on a larger scale – FELA’s banknote challenge at the event made entrepreneurs.
Last year rounded up with a refreshing excursion and exchange visit session.
This year’s edition will bring the best and most seasoned entrepreneurs with outstanding works in different fields of life.
Rolland Kwemain, Fotabe Elmine , Mitjake Simon, Takor Ronald, Bamai Namata, Etakah Edia, Mambe Churchill, Javnyuy Joybert and Gotrand Berinyuy are all household names who will train participants at the event.
The training will take place at the Advanced National Training Center Douala. (See details below)
