Strides Made...

In January 2019, the young entrepreneur created a start-up venture known as Vanny Arts with the aim of solving the problems of waste valorisation in Cameroon and create exceptional designs that will make Cameroonians consume their own products. Founded with the main aim to valorise non biodegradable waste; transforming them into other products, prolonging their life span and promote culture through the choice of designs and materials.
