ave you ever heard the phrase, “Get with the program?” And often, it’s preceded by a “It’s the 21st century!” True, it’s so easy for us living in the United States to take our advances in technology for granted. Most American youth can casually like a comment on Facebook,


“tweet” the latest gossip, and search for a local restaurant and new movie releases all on a single device that’s no bigger than the size of their palms. We can easily find information on anything on the Internet and various forms of media streams the latest news and developments all to our very fingertips.


owever, the vast majority of youth in the continent of Africa are not given this luxury. Native of Cameroon, Roland Fomundam began this program in Massachusetts in 2007 and molded it into the 501(c)(3) organization known as Youth Action Africa in 2009.With domestic branches


in Northeastern University, Simmons College, and Gettysburg College and an abroad base in Johan- nesburg, YAA seeks to empower the people of Africa with the access to up-to-date technology. This access to technology means access to opportunities, resources, and information that can not only greatly improve the social and physical well-being of the people of Africa but heighten their chances for success in boosting their economies.


resently, YAA plans to raise awareness and sponsorship of its cause. By stretching its expanse to colleges within and beyond the northeast, YAA can and will build a network of passionate volunteers. In the long term, YAA hopes to bring about substantial social change in all fifty four countries in the continent of Africa.
