Asan (China), 2014

Asanfsky Li, AIESEC ZZU I am Asan Li, I arrived in Douala, Cameroon in 10th , July,2014 and began my EP trip. It took me more than 6 hours from Douala to my intern village: Bangoua, which was located in West Cameroon. At the very start, I was scared by the total strange environment, congested bus and language obstacle. However, after reaching Bangoua, everything became good. People in Bangoua were always well-mannered and kind, you could show your smile and said Hello to every stranger. And the landscape here was also awesome, I witnessed the rainbow crossed a valley, countless…

Miranda (China), 2014

I was very glad to be in the team of the Webdev Foundation. I spent 4 weeks with lots of great partners: Asan, Manuela, Shandy, Stefan, Sean, Anna, Juana, Clara, Franklin, Aristide, Jason, Song, Stephen, Gustav, Gildas and our chief Clotaire. I had a very great time, and together we did a lot of jobs here. This could be one of my best experience in my life. I worked with Asan to teach the kids basic Chinese words. Like cloth, animals, food, verbs and so on. We combined Chinese words with pictures, and interacted with the kids, making the class…

Clara Huelskemper (Germany), 2014

I enjoyed working with the international team very much, and I am sure that the students, too, enjoyed the cultural exchange. Sessions like Chinese were only possible with the Chinese volunteers. However, I do think that in the next years there should be more French lessons for the volunteers. They were very dependent on the French speakers, during classes and simply to go to the market. I am very thankful for the opportunity to take part in the Bangoua Summer School 2014. I spent two and a half wonderful, varied and exciting weeks with nice and interesting people. I will…

Onome Samuel (Nigeria), 2013

The working relation was a mixture of pressure and also relaxed. There were times things got dragging and there also times things were running smooth. In general, the supervision from the CEO shows a great deal of leadership. The works of the organization is perhaps a saving grace to the people in the rural areas where the project is being held. So many people are educated in aspects they never believed to get. They say the success of an organization lies in the strength of the different teams that makes up the organization. On this note, I strongly believe that the strength of WEBDEV lies vastly…

Aska Czechowska (UK & Poland), 2013

Getting on the project: Finding the project was rather tricky as it would not come up when I was searching the internet for volunteering in Africa. One of my friends mentioned doing work exchange as a part of her university and I used that phrase to search. Eventually I came across a student exchange blog entry that pointed me towards AIESEC on the Polish speaking internet. AIESEC is an international student organisation that can support potential candidates with finding a project to go volunteering on shorter projects, or do a longer project and get paid. When I registered with AIESEC,…

Before I went to cameroon, it’s totally a blank to me.Although there were a lot of message came to me,I knew that’s not true,there are still lots of misunderstanding of africa,so one of my goal is to explore the real africa by myself.

Naroa Ibargoyen (Spain), 2014

My name is Naroa, I live on the north of Spain, and this summer I’ve been travelling around Cameroon. During my trip, I had the opportunity to visit WebDev Foundation. It is a local NGO covering many projects which I really found interesting and somehow related to each other. What impressed me most was to find out that there are some NGO that want to help local communities focusing on education, teaching other ways of living, aiming for a better future for everyone. Until then, I had not been aware of the importance of concentrating our efforts into education, due…
