The Minister of Secondary Education and the General Manager of Nachtigal Hydro Power Company (NHPC) have signed this Thursday June 22nd  a partnership agreement aiming at reinforcing technical secondary schools within the Nachtigal project zone through the improvement of their infrastructures, equipment and materials. The selected beneficiaries are the technical secondary schools of Mbandjock, Ntui, Obala and Batchenga.

Beyond the improvement of infrastructures, equipment and materials in the aforementioned schools, both parties undertake through this agreement to collaborate to enable students and their educators to learn about the professions of civil, electric and mechanic engineering, their respective training means, and the various job opportunities offered by these latter.

This agreement is part of NHPC’s environmental and social commitments within the framework of the Nachtigal Amont project, and aims at implementing actions with strong economic and social impact that meet the expectations of the local populations, as well as those of the Cameroonian government.

As a reminder, the Nachtigal Amont project is a hydroelectric project developed by NHPC for the construction of a dam, a 420MW hydro powerplant on the Sanaga River and a 225kV electricity transmission line.

The signature of this agreement, on one hand, reflects the importance that NHPC holds for the training and professional insertion of young Cameroonians, and on the other hand, serves as an example for all the other structuring projects in Cameroon that wish to contribute to the improvement of education and labor market integration.
