Cameroon YES Alumni activities: Global Youth Service Day:

(LENDING A HELPING HAND; iCARE About You)

In Buea April /13th /2019

This year, for the Global Youth Service Day (GYSD), YES alumni in Buea, visited the orphanage (HOTPEC). The ages of children at that orphanage ranges from few days till 26 years. They are in need of assistance for survival. To make this project more sustainable, lessons on soap production was given to the orphanage. This in turn helped to reduce their expenditures. Also, a volunteer Opted to train the older orphans on book binding skills, this could help the older children gain skills for entrepreneurship.

The turnout was unbelievable. More than 100 orphans present, 10parents, caretakers 30 volunteers (classmates, friends, church members etc.)

Everyone was very excited. They learnt how to produce soap, how to make books.  They learnt several songs, ate and played together. Everything was a success. Merville Daizy Njounkeng Keabouh (YES(16) said: I can't wait to write a story of their visit to HOTPEC. 😄

There was also a letter exchange section. The children wrote replies to the letters they received from their friends.
