Kevin Sob, Volunteer and representative in Douala

I am Kevin SOB young Cameroonian and student, passionate about community development and very active in volunteering with WebDev Foundation. I am one of those who think that the development of Cameroon, as of Africa as well, begins with the rural areas and that will be done with its youth. It’s been about 2 years already that I work alongside WebDev foundation as a volunteer member. From my experience I think there is so much to gain for a young person through volunteer work such as cultural exchanges, the discovery of new cultures, new traditions, new environment, the pleasure of working to render service to a community in need, to help those who have not really had the chance like others, to share with them the knowledge and know-how that will help.

I invite all young people from here and elsewhere, all people regardless of sex or race to join us to leave an impact, a positive impact within communities.

I am a young person always motivated. Always ready to take the challenge and go beyond the challenges I encounter. I would like to see the youth of my country take initiatives for its own future.

I have therefore engaged with WEBDEV FOUNDATION to support those young people who wish to realize their dreams so that together we can contribute to the emergence of our country. Working for WebDev Foundation, I was able to develop several potentials that were hidden in me including leadership, human resources management. With WebDev Foundation, I was also able to rub myself with multiple cultures and today I can work in any environment with people from diverse backgrounds without the slightest problem.

I joined the WEBDEV FOUNDATION as a participant in 2011, an organization that has given me more reason to believe in my dreams and life projects.

An organization that thanks to the welcoming spirit and the enthusiastic spirit of its members gave me the opportunity to see the life of a sense more pleasant compared to the time when I sailed without really knowing how organize, or what I would be in this life.

I will never forget WEBDEV FOUNDATION, its language sessions, entrepreneurship, extra activities, health and others.
I will give everything to share my know-how, my experience with children / participants from rural areas of Cameroon, with international volunteers. Because of WEBDEV Foundation, I met and made friend with people from all around the world.
I invite those who read this comment to enjoy the happiness of leaving WEBDEV FOUNDATION because like me, I just gave a little of my time to the benefit of the people and in return I received more than I gave .

I thank Mr. the founder of the organization for giving me the opportunity to join the group that is for me now a second family.

WaLi team in Bangoua moving ahead in 2018

WaLi team in Bangoua moving ahead in 2018

In October-November 2017, an international team travelled to Bangoua with the purpose to initiate the Project Water for Life. During 5 weeks, 10 technicians received an intensive training on basic self and water supply technics, then a workshop have been opened to help those technicians continuing practicing and promote the knowledge within the village.

The motivation of having a place to work is growing up day after day. Student showed their interest and the confirmation of the transfer of the know-how they received. Then they rehabilitated one of the common water point of the area called Kamna, installing two EMAS pumps. Then started the usage of the pump added to the one built during the course from hand drilling. Lately in January 2018, a team of 4 of the technician conducted a successful maintenance campaign on the two water systems.

In the village, due to still lack of resources, they are opening the workshop for now at least a day during the week (the local market day of Kamna). Some pre-bill has been sent out and they are waiting for the return.

But at the same time, we hope to continue promoting this technology by building some other systems in the village as planned when we started this project. Our goal is to built 27 water systems in 3 years. You can continue supporting us by following this link: https://abarka.org/campaigns/water4life-camerun/

My goals were to help with the various activities concerning the different projects both in manual and intellectual way. My personal goals were to experience a different way of living, without all the comforts that I use to have and to
understand more my personal soft skills.

Concerning the Madiba project during the morning I was teaching to the teenager Italian and IT class. During the afternoon classes, in the hospital, I was assisting the IT and sometimes the English teachers. Regarding the WaLi project, since I do not speak French I was mostly the photographer and kind of assistant of the other member of the teams, the same for iciangoua.net.

I was completely out of my comfort zone. I tried to do my best to stay with everyone, to help during the various activities and to not complaining when there where something that I did not like.

Web&Development foundation give you the opportunity to do many things. First of all to stay in touch with the African culture, you will be immerse in a local village, where people live with few coins per days. Secondly, you will have the opportunity to teach different topics to kids, teenagers and adults, which give you the ability to see
how effective you are to explain things to people. Moreover, you will have the opportunity to sensibilise the local populations regarding some important issues, like having drinkable water in the house and the importance to be connected on the web for doing business. In addition to that, you will have the opportunity to share the house with local volunteering and from other people from all over the world. Therefore, it is a good opportunity to do something good, to help and empower people and to discover a different culture.
