Paula Johnson began her career as a computer programmer. As technology advanced she switched to being a Geographic Information System specialist (GIS), analyzing all types of geographic and spatial data. Her years of experience working with Excel and data entering was a valuable asset to the 2017 computer training workshop in Cameroon.
What We Did:
♦ Team members Paula Johnson and Laura Knapp led Microsoft Office 365 training
♦ 12 young women and two local teachers participated in a 20 day computer training course.
♦ 6 new laptop computers and teacher training materials were donated to the training center.
♦ Students anticipate these valuable computer skills will increase their employment opportunities.
♦ The local teachers who participated in the training will continue sharing computer skills and run an income-generating cyber-café at the vocational training center.
♦ A portion of the café’s profits will help sustain the operating costs of the training center.
