Welcome

Misongi

We bring together high achieving, promising young leaders driven to learn and make an impact in their community. We run an intensive series of bootcamps for our scholars throughout the year. Our activities include lectures, seminars, standardized test preparation, workshops, admission sessions, field trips, and sports. At the end of their first boot camp, scholars are matched with mentors and placed with local companies and community-based organizations for internships and volunteering opportunities.

Misongi's priority

We prioritize not just getting our scholars admitted into top universities but making sure that we prepare them adequately for an undergraduate life that would ensure success.

History

Misongi connects Cameroon’s most exceptional, motivated youth with leading institutions of higher education and further opportunities. By working with these students — beginning in junior high, Misongi aims to increase the percentage of talented Cameroonian students attending the world’s best universities and to support them to achieve success in their careers and communities.

Programs

College Access Program

We bring together high achieving, promising young leaders driven to learn and make an impact in their community. We run intensive two weeks boot-camp throughout the year which includes lectures, seminars, standardized test preparation, workshops, admissions sessions, field trips, and sports. At the end of their first boot camp, scholars are matched with mentors and placed with local companies and community-based organizations for internships and volunteering opportunities.

We developed our rigorous curriculum and programming around key issues such as 21st-century curricula, education innovation, digital fluency, and STEAM skills and lifelong learning pathways. Technological innovation is fundamentally transforming education. Our program is reflective of those changes. We help our scholars develop digital fluency, and Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics, and Entrepreneurship (STEAM) skills if they are to be equipped to navigate and thrive in the Fourth Industrial Revolution era.

However, our curriculum places a special emphasis on cultural identity and is grounded on the ethos of giving back. Through interactive workshops, we help our scholars build local and global citizenship values, and nourish core non-cognitive skills. We believe nurturing a new generation of responsible and responsive leaders involves building a solid foundation for a lifetime of adapting and developing new abilities. This is our mission, and we are committed to assisting our scholars to fulfill their potential.
