For the last 20 years, the Serge Betsen Academy has provided its children with academic support courses up to Baccalauréat level (equivalent UK A-levels) and also occasionally helps some of its higher-potential children to pursue their university/higher education.
The support of the French Development Agency (AFD), as part of the “Academies” Program, allows the SBA to strengthen its support in higher education, and with the backing of local businesses we will be able to strengthen our positive impact.
As part of our SBA Big Brother & Sister (B&S) Project, we are requesting that your business support our high-potential young people by:
– Offering qualifying internships to young people from the Serge Betsen Academy and monitoring them closely,
– Speaking in our centres to present the professions represented in your company and thus encouraging vocations,
– Showing our young people round your business facilities to introduce them to these professions,
– Making a financial donation to enable a student to pursue higher education.
This year, 5 SBA students (3 from the Bafia centre and 2 from the Zoétélé centre) passed the prestigious Ucac-Icam (Catholic University of Central Africa – Catholic Institute of Arts and Crafts) competitive entrance exam and without external funding from companies, they will not be able to carry out their engineering or advanced technicians studies on the campuses of Pointe-Noire in Congo or Douala in Cameroon, given the financial difficulties of their families.
By financing the studies of one of our young people over 3 years, you will allow this young person to study in a high-quality institute, to obtain a highly recognised license and to realise their professional dream! A donation of €16,669 (or FCA 10,918,000) allows a young person to complete a Bachelor’s degree in Douala. And for a degree in Pointe Noire, a donation of €18,915 (or FCFA 12,389,000) is necessary.
And of course, as soon as they leave university, with their diploma in hand, priority will be given to you for the hiring of this young person.
