Our representative for Congo, Otoka Eyenguet Luvick Chinove, just got back from visiting Brazzaville and Pointe-Noire. The students there are excited and he’s done a great job of establishing connections to the universities there! We’re really looking forward to working with them this year.

Luvick’s summary:

The vision of FSE is helping young Africans to dream big, to love engineering field and to say yes they can innovate in technology; and the kind of projects proposal that I have heard from them, told me that we are in the good way to not only change Africa but also to make Africa great by training those who would build Africa tomorrow.

In Brazzaville, Luvick visited the Ecole National D’Enseignement Superieur et Professionelle (ENESP) and Ecole Africaine de Developpement (EAD). The students, a mixed group of first year students up to those shortly before finishing, were excited about FSE’s strategy of collaborating with students, providing hands-on experience and depending on their know-how to spread knowledge and practical experience. They subsequently created a WhatsApp group in order to help prepare for an workshop there.

A few days afterwards, Luzabu Group organized a seminar, in which Luvick participated. Together, they built telephone chargers, which gave everybody a taste of what future activities will be like.

Luvick then traveled to Pointe-Noire. On the way he took the chance to verify road conditions and safety factors. Once in Pointe-Noire, he visited fifteen senior high schools, as well as the Institut Universitaire de Technologie d’Afrique Centrale (IUTAC) and EAD Pointe-Noire. In addition to these schools, he also went to Dolisie. In all these places, he established connections for future collaborations and excited the students for working with FSE in the future by repeating the workshop from.

Now Luvick is back in Accra, but the trip has been very important for the future of FSE in Congo. He made great connections, excited hundreds of students, established a plan for small groups to educate each other and spread knowledge, and arranged facilities for the workshops to take place in. It was a lot of work, and it took more than a month to complete. We are very excited to come back soon and work together toward a better future!

Here are some impressions from the road:


One thought on “FSE in Congo

  1. Hello everyone.
    Still on preparation of the coming workshop in Africa, in partnership with Luzabu Group we doing our best to get students ready for 2020 project with Full Stack Embedded.
    We are actually training people from various cities like Brazzaville, Pointe-Noire, Dolisie and Bouansa in English.
    Why English?
    First of all because it is the most spoken language in the world, secondly is it our base language for teaching even if we are bilingual and all our materials are in English so we want students that we teach should the necessary tools to continue research in our physical absence and thirdly it is a business language.
    Then in partnership with Luzabu group we have organized a three months free program about English in the listed cities of Congo.
    Pictures will be soon posted on the website.
