Continuous contribution to youth training
SNH supports the national education community through several actions. Thus, thanks to the "Excellence Award" operation, the Company contributes to improving the supply of textbooks and computer equipment in the libraries and multimedia centres of the best public secondary schools in the ten regions of Cameroon, according to the rankings of the Office du Baccalauréat du Cameroun and the GCE Board.
It also encourages deserving students from various parts of the country through awards ceremonies. The main beneficiaries are the pupils of schools located near operation sites or hosting oil infrastructures in the South-West, the Littoral, the South and the Far North regions.
Moreover, the company contributes to the professionalization of teaching in the oil industry. In this context, it has notably set up a computer laboratory for petroleum geosciences at the University of Douala, in partnership with oil services company Schlumberger.
SNH is conducting a project to extend this experience to other academic institutions. This involves the Departments dedicated to Earth Sciences at the Universities of Yaoundé I, Dschang, Buea and Bamenda, the Petromines Centre at the University of Douala, the Faculty of Mines and Petroleum Industries at the University of Maroua (based in Kaélé) and the School of Geology and Mining at the University of Ngaoundéré (based in Meïganga).
