If you truly believe something the whole universe will conspire
to help you achieve it. Paulo Coelho
GLOBAL SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP CAN SIMPLY BE DEFINED AS A VENTURE BROUGHT INTO THE LAMP LIGHT BY A SAVVY INDIVIDUAL WHO VIEWS TRENDS AS OPPORTUNITIES TO BUILD UP A VALUE CHANGING ORGANISATION TO SOLVE PROBLEMS WITIHIN HIS COMMUNITY AND THE WORLD, WITHOUT REGARDS TO HIS CURRENT CONTROL OF RESOURCES. THERE BY REMOVING RESOURCES FROM DOMAINS OF LOWER YIELDS AND PRODUCTIVITY TO DOMAINS OF HIGHER YIELDS AND PRODUCTIVITY. It is a for ” others entrepreneurship”

Language Education promotes literacy and literacy opens up a world of learning. “Literacy is a human right, a tool of personal empowerment and a means for social and human development”. UNESCO.
Today English is a widely spoken language around the world and it is gradually becoming a must have tool for any 22nd century person. And so i see this like a problem that needs to be solved since not everybody was born speaking in English. The world needs a language to work and run on and we can’t deny that it is English as for now.
It is said in a business world that when you grow larger you become vulnerable and so you need to live in security to trust on information you receive on how your business is going.
Information that certainly you will rely on a partner or co-worker and better still the manager to get, of which often times you are oblige to consider the gospel truth though with modernization counter information has actually been imputed like a means to ensure the validity of information you received.
Now imagine a growing business world like the one we are in today, and imagine a situation where we can’t speak and understand the same language as owners and managers, this creates insecurity and lack of trust and hinders growth.This picture is real of our world of business and many other domains.(It is far from being what Professor Muhammad Yunus started in Bangladesh with was base on complete TRUST, but we can get to this point.)
The reversal effect is what happens when we can all understand each other without middle men or translators.
Furthermore we see the Chinese today opening up their boundaries for English teachers to come in and help their population learn to speak and better communicate in English. The need of this language cannot be over emphasized
English is one of the language you must know how to speak and communicate in if you must get any job today let alone and international job.
Cameroonian will tell you they will be better integration and lesser marginalization if every French speaking Cameroonian could speak and expressed themselves in English and the English speakers the same in French. Developmental schemes will best be achieved if we all could hear and understand each other as this will wipe away every suspicion that language barrier could bring.
Not being able to speak and communicate in English today is like a pregnant woman that has gotten to the point of birth and lacks strength to do that. Ideas will be buried and some misunderstood, civilization will witness a serious drawback, growth will be retarded and conflicts at all levels will be eminent.
May be we might go back to those aged old bible days of the towel of babel and King Nimrod, when the world spoke in just one and the same language before they were scattered, but the world in which we live in today has grown pass the level not to have a common language (binding factor) that all can speak and communicate in. And English is that unifying language for the human race.
This dream can be achieved in every non-English speaking nations and communities or rural regions around the world and when this is done then the factors that unify us together will be greater than those that pull us apart and a shift of mentality will be gain for every mind, as the world and us all will seek to be part of the great solution that plaques our peace, growth and oneness and not be a part of the problem.
So there is an imperative and effective need for the implementation of this vision and dream and this cannot be gotten without support and constructive contribution.
- To this effect SIET with all her 4 key strategies, quiet different from bilingualism which contextually will simple mean understanding and speaking in two languages(French and English in the case of Cameroon) aims first at promoting literacy within Individuals (pupils, students, and families), communities, societies, countries(beginning from Cameroon) and the world at large especially to non-English speaking through language education and especially the English language since English is gradually becoming the global language for business and better communication around the world.
- Also, since literacy is a precious pearl and an asset that opens up a world of learning, SIET seeks to give this priceless asset of literacy via language learning to her targets, in other to promote personal empowerment and also use this as a means to socially and humanly develop communities, societies and countries.
- SIET is a loving and giving structure that originates from a small community, so one of the reasons we do what we do is simply to give back to our communities something that’s of worth in a bite to contribute our own small quota for the community’s development.
- We seek to encourage bilingualism in Cameroon.
From an observation, I realized that more English speakers within our milieu are becoming bilingual as they quickly get the French language and are speaking it while the French speakers are left behind, So SIET comes to bridge this gap and bring to level these two set of people within the Cameroonian territory. This will also go a long way to enhance and promote a better integration between the Francophones and the Anglophones in Cameroon and other French speaking countries like France and Canada and also shun marginalization.
