    We would especially appreciate if you have specificate knowledge and skills, so if you're a engineer, please, be welcome ! Low-level public investment in engineering education and development projects over the past several decades has had a devastating effect and any specificate help would be appreciated : civil, mechanical, water engineer, we have some many ideas of projects that we can agree on one you could work on, or something someone has done previously you could continue.
    Any person with any skills is welcome and you are free to design your own project and we shall facilitate its implementation at the local level,working with different partners.
    we are looking forward to hosting you in cameroon for a memorable stay.
