This member story was featured in the 2016 APC Annual Report, as part of our work on access.
In December 2016, with the support of an APC member small grant, PROTEGE-QV held a workshop to investigate the reasons behind the relatively poor access to and quality of the internet in Cameroon.
For this purpose, 20 ambassadors were carefully selected and their capacities strengthened to advocate for faster and more affordable internet connectivity in the country. The workshop participants came from various backgrounds: the media (online, printed, radio), civil society organisations, students, ICT professionals, and managers of Multipurpose Community Telecentres (MCTs).
The criteria for the selection of these 20 ambassadors included ensuring a gender balance, their ability to master the training in the telecommunications field, and their capacity for conducting an advocacy campaign.
