SCC graduate creates foundation to increase digital literacy
“I was given wonderful support by (SCC basketball coach) Joe O’Brien and my host family. I learned a lot about myself and my potential, which led to my passion today. I noticed a great digital divide between students in America and my home country of Cameroon. I wanted to change that, so I created the Manengouba Foundation. We refurbish computers donated by American companies and package them with a basic digital literacy program. Then we train the teachers so they can add it to their curriculum.”
