Heavy metals are one of the most dangerous groups of biologically important pollutants. The burden of the environment puts more significant burden on populations and ecosystems. They form an integral part of the earth’s surface and therefore are present throughout the land. We can utter that, contamination of the environment and its consequences for living organisms have long been in forefront of the interest in scientific as well as lay community.

In Cameroon today, youth have taken up initiatives and business ventures to make use of these metals that can damage the environment. One of them is Foncha Rajou popularly known as Rajounash, CEO at Raj Engineering Services that has as motto, Inspire the next. Raj Engineering Services workshop is situated at Etoudi Yaounde.

"What inspired me in choosing welding and metallic fabrication as a trade is that, while growing up, I saw the lacking day to day needs of a sheet metallist, like in the fabrication of farm tools and also the fabrication of machines to process farm produce", Foncha Rajou told The Safeguard.

"I also saw some of the challenges my dad was facing as a welder and took upon myself to be a sheet metal engineer to overcome and bring a lot of innovation in the field of welding and metallic fabrication", he added.
