We are proud to announce that LOTI has opened its office in Sonac
Street Mankon - Bamenda (full address below).
The office will be headed by Fai Cedric Yengo - the founder of LOTI.
"We are already welcoming a number of visitors interested in our activities and services. This reflects the relevance and importance behind LOTI's mission as this project is all about the creation of a resource centre that would provide continuous internet connection and a mini library. Further, LOTI aims to provide support in negotiating scholarships from online universities for unprivileged youths who cannot afford university education. These young people will be offered free of charge training on how to use the internet and give them the opportunity to use the internet services at our resource centre freely until they graduate from their respective online universities."

LOTI's opening hours are Mondays to Saturdays: 08:00 to 17:00 .

LOTI receives another funding support
We are proud to announce that LOTI has received funding on behalf of Pearson Foundation for Social Innovation. This is a sentiment that validates and supports LOTI's cause and its importance for shaping future development of the social and educational conditions for Cameroon's unprivileged youth. The announcement of all successful Fellows will be announced on December 9, 2010 in Doha, Qatar at the World Innovation Summit on Education with the Fellowship Program beginning on January 17, 2011.
The Pearson Foundation has been funding the initial development of the innovative Sprout E-course and - more recently - sponsoring the organization's Pearson Fellowship for Social Innovation. Available worldwide, the Sprout E-course helps young people imagine, plan, and develop effective and scalable social innovation projects. Since its release in 2008, the Sprout E-course has given young people from more than forty countries access to training in essential skills; including team building, project management, communications, and the ability to leverage technology.
We hope that this will be one of many LOTI's successful future projects.
