Solidarité Technologique (ST) is a French association, recognized as serving the public good, founded in 2001. Established in Yaoundé since 2004, Solidarité Technologique aims at developing the employability of disadvantaged young adults from 18 to 35 years old, promoting Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) as a vehicle for development and supporting good environmental practices through the recycling and reuse of the waste of electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).
OUR MISSION IN SHORT
The mission of Solidarité Technologique includes two complementary lines of intervention :
1- Recycling of the waste of electrical and electronic equipment :
This activity allows both the preservation of the environment through the management of toxic waste and the reduction of the digital divide through the local sale of upgraded high-quality equipment at low prices.
2- Training of disadvantaged young adults in computer science :
Our training centre in Yaoundé offers theoretical and practical courses in office automation and computer maintenance. Students are then supported in their job search, particularly through our local network of partner companies. The training courses are subsidised at 80% by ST, and the programmes lead to a State Diploma delivered by the Cameroon Ministry of Vocational Training (MINFOP) with a success rate of more than 80% and a ranking of students among the best in the region.
