The African countries are confronted for several years with the problems of underdevelopment and the governments (in place) put themselves ready to work and secure the living conditions of the future generations.
However, in many countries, the development is a question which returns in the conversations and which is always handed in the hands of the State which has more and more difficulty to contain the height of population.
So, how long should we wait before the development arrives? Will this reach all of our communities at the same time? How many years still so that in the African countrysides there is some light (electricity) everywhere? Even less internet? How long will it take to youth in Africa to access quality education? What type of job may they have?
A group of young Cameroonians thus decided in 2006 to set up an organization which will be officially legalized in October, 2008 in the objective to contribute to the global efforts of reassurance of the living conditions in our communities in Africa. The Name was created as Web and Development Foundation with a short name WEBDEV FOUNDATION.
The Previous Logo has being changed to fit the major update occuring in the organisation. This logo was to simple and had no real meaningfull to those who were seing it. The Logo weren’t express the real action carrying out by the organisation and was not relevant for our image.
While working for the summer 2012 Project, we found that the logo need to be adapt and fit the new orientation of the organisation. The logo had to reflect the impact we want to have in the society. So we come out with the new one beside this text.
So from February 15th, 2012 the new logo is used for all of our documents, websites, facebook, youtube, communictaion materials…
