On 30 July 2018 Thomson Reuters Foundation reported: Nearly one in three girls in Cameroon are married by 18 and drop out of school early. But new science schemes are hoping to turn girls into tech innovators. In a country where one in four girls do not even learn to read, Xaviera, one of about 20 young Cameroonians studying at the NextGen centre in Yaounde, is picking up the basics of artificial intelligence. The centre is the brainchild of Janet Fofang, a pioneering scientist and teacher who aims to train the future tech innovators of her country -- with a particular focus on its girls. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of education and business, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
