Hello from UNM-Cameroon,
We have a little less than 3 weeks before we all are off to Cameroon. May 15! UNM will be working with 5 students from Ohio State University, an organic farmer, the Cameroon Association of Active Youths (CamAAY) and the surrounding communities this summer.
We’ll head to Douala first and then the Northwest region, around OKU and BATIBO.
We’re still working on our visas and finalizing the details of the projects coinciding with our stay, but it looks like we’ll be involved in various things in some capacity or another alongside CamAAY:
- Women’s health campaigns promoting awareness about menstruation and safe sex
- International Youth Leadership Camp
- Sports Tournament
- Women’s seed collective groups (agricultural techniques and seed sharing)
- Construction of the community center in OKU:
If you have any resources you’d like to share about preventing substance abuse in youth, women’s health education and youth leadership, comment below! We’ll be involved in workshops and awareness campaigns related to this.
