I was born in Belgium in 1974 and I shared my education between Europe and Africa. After two years in medical studies in Central Africa Republic (CAR), I changed my orientation and started studying Theology, Psychology and Science of Education, Sciences of Religion, Communication, Sociology and Anthropology, Entrepreneurship ( at University of Wales and at Université Catholique de Louvain). I achieved two Bachelors and two Masters: Science of Religions and Socio-Anthropology. I started to work as a teacher in September 2004 and I also started my own company in 2007 who became U’HOPE COMPANY in June 2018.
As also a citizen of CAR I was very concerned by the crisis that my country has been going through since 2013. I was convinced that education was the key for improving a society, and I was aware of the lack of teachers in a large part of my country. Then started the idea of an interactive tele teaching through the Internet (Vsat) that could enable a teacher to teach several classrooms in different parts of the country at the same time. In partnership with an Internet connexion provider ( SatADSL SA) we started a pilot project in a High School (Lycée Nasradine) in Bangui ( Central Africa Republic ) . We then observed that the students who attended our tele teaching from teachers who were in Europe had a better rate of success than those who did not.
In order to further innovate in the interactivity with the numerical solution, we developed our own software with teaching tools that called D@niel. Beginning in January 2019, we have been using our technology in a High School in Brussels (Athénée Royal de Verwée) in order to offer replacement for absent teachers and for remediation. We have already presented our concept to many countries as Senegal, Cameroun, South Africa and we were speaker at the last Africa-Belgium Business Week 2019 FORUM B2B EUROPE-AFRIQUE ; http://www.forum-abbw.be/fr/
