Japhet Gael Mavoungou Kimbembe
Japhet Mavoungou has over three years of experience in youth empowerment, mainly in the education sector. Japhet is currently the co-founder and vice-president of the Luzabu Group Association, which provides hands-on experience in technology and robotics for youth between the ages of nine and thirty years old. He holds two engineering degrees, in Oil and Gas Drilling and Processes, from IPG Kinshasa and the Ghana Oil Drilling Academy and Consultancy.
