MBOSCUDA trains Youth leaders to Promote Intercultural Diversity.

Some Youth Leaders within the Northwest Region , have attended a capacity training workshop under the framework of Bridging the Gap Project by MBOSCUDA, sponsored by the European Union, to acquire training on effective responsibility in decision making arenas.

The workshop takes place on April 18th, to strengthen the purpose of promoting intercultural diversity, explaining the roles and responsibilities of youth leaders in the different communities, as a way of resolving conflicts existing in many communities.

Sali Django, Coordinator and head of the MBOSCUDA office Bamenda, talks about the project and the expected achievements of the project, which focuses on the conflicts in most communities.

"The workshop is coming within the framework of a project we have, sponsored by the European Eunion, called Bridging the Gap(BTG), safeguarding Peace and human rights and promoting intercultural Dialogue. We did a project in the past trying to resolve a conflict between these two; the bororos and the farming communities."

"We focused mostly on the natural resources, but the cultural dimension was not addressed by the project, reason why we needed to do so because if cultures of the ethnic groups don't understand each then there is a tendency for the conflict to come back" Sali Django explained.

He also said it is important training the youths, which according to him is a key aspect, making them understand their roles and responsibilities in their different communities given that the form a good majority of the population and are willing to implement new ideas.

"We are focusing now on promoting intercultural Dialogue, as we target many groups, targeting women groups, farmers and graziers, as way to solve these different conflicts, while the workshop is targeting youths, youth leaders, so that they understand the cultures of the ethnic groups existing in their communities, as key aspect; what are cultural rights, to understand and tolerate these in their communities." Sali Django added.

Shei William, one of the facilitators in the workshop, says the workshop is timely, given the situation faced in the Northwest Region, as a result of the armed conflict and believes that the youths can contribute a great deal for peace and calm to return.

"We are in a workshop that concerns mainly leaders of youth associations within the region, it is timely and important because, the youths play a very important role in community development. They are the most agile group of persons and with the conflicts in most communities, youths are mostly the front line actors. The workshop only comes to remind the youth leaders about their roles and responsibilities, and the role that cultural diversity is playing, as far as their reponsibilities as leaders is concerned, reason because most of these conflicts come up because of cultural differences". Shey.. said

"The youths present here at the workshop, cut across the society, and the conflicts come from the misunderstandings these groups have. We think that if they understand themselves, they will be tolerant to interact with the others without having conflicts occuring" he added.

Participants were convinced that after understanding the objectives of the workshop, they will be able to mediate in their communities, while promoting intercultural dialogue and cultural diversity. Mbuh Derrick Ticha, is a national youth volunteer and is representing the Santa- Mesaw Youth Association in Santa.

" we are schooled on the role and responsibilities of youth leaders within their communities, as a young person and a youth leader, I learned that, working In a community, I must be considerate, see into it that other cultures are at peace with each other, i need to learn their culture in order not to bridge their human rights, because we are working on the project Bridging the Gap, to solve conflicts existing within our communities". He said.

Mbahiru Adamu, Secetary General  representing the Fulani Student and Development Association says it has been a productive workshop, because participation was high and alot of questions, worries have been answered, on what olis expected of youth leaders.

"I learnt about tolerance towards different cultures, accept cultural diversity and the responsibility we have as youth leaders to ensure that our communities, our people live together. I will sensitize on the values of cultural diversity, having a sense of responsibility by educating the people on what is right and the essence of living together" he said.

According to Sali Django, Youths are a key component of the society for development, undermining women and youths will be a failure to a project that needs implementation, he adds that MBOSCUDA is working with them to promote social intergration.

Covid 19, REWAC visits People with Special Needs.

Volunteers with Refugee Welfare Association Cameroon, REWAC with Head office in Bamenda, have visited Persons living with disabilities, to make the fight against Covid-19 Inclusive by providing them with kits to aid in prevention.

The exercise takes place April 16th, in Bamenda, Nancho, where members of the Coordinating Unit of Persons living with disabilities recieved REWAC and items brought to assist the fight against Covid-19.

REWAC offered items like buckets, soap and hand sanitizers to the representatives of persons living with disabilities; Nincho Samuel the Coordinator of the Unit, Veronica Ngum, President of Women Living with disabilities in the Northwest Region and Tonian Peter, President for Hope Social Union for the visually impaired.

Though they were happy that they were remembered to take part in the fight against Covid-19, they also recounted the challenges they faced, since the coming of the pandemic to Cameroon.

They told REWAC that outreach teams campaigning against the disease and the Government had forgotten about their needs during these challenges and had failed to provide them with what is needed to join in the fight against Covid-19.

Veronica Ngum, President of Women living with disabilities says the challenges are enormous, considering that the exercise of washing hands is not very adaptable to the situation of persons living with disabilities.

"Women with disabilities in the Northwest face alot of challenges in preventing themselves from Covid 19, Those using crutches touch places all the time, which is not allowed as part of preventive measures, visually impaired persons need to be guided and here the social distancing is not respected and it cannot be maintained amongst persons with disability." She explains.

"With the measures put in place by government, many people do not give assistance to those persons living with disability because according to them they will not be respecting the preventive measures against Covid-19" she added.

"In the markets there is an announcement welcoming people and asking them to wash hands, but for those who are deaf and dumb, they will have need to read a handwriting indication so and an arrow that points to the bucket." Veronica Ngum, President of Women Living with disabilities.

She adds that most of these persons living with disabilities need the hand Sanitizers, just incase most of them don't find the buckets stationed in public spaces adaptable, they can always sanitize their hands.

Tonian Peter, President of Hope Social Visual Impaired persons confirms that persons with disability or those who are visualy impaired have not recieved training on preventive measures on Covid 19.

"We have not recieved training from NGOs about the disease on how to fight this deadly disease,we are grateful to REWAC for this initiative and we pray many other copy the example and make this fight inclusive, because the disease can affect anyone. We have serious challenges fighting Covid 19, we don't have directives in public Institutions and most atimes no one directs us" he explains.

"I wash my hands together with the white cane if I find myself at the tap and some people will not not notice I don't see and will only shout In a loud tone, go and wash your hands there, without assisting me even when they notice I cannot find myself to the bucket. This is challenging and we appeal on all to make the fight against Covid-19 Inclusive" Tonian Peter tells The Guardian Post.

These Persons living with disabilities at the Coordinating Unit in Nancho, tell REWAC how relief they were to recieve the items to fight Covid 19 and mention that most of them have need for hand sanitizers, pleading that ha d sanitizers be provided to their peers across the Northwest Region, so that the fight remains inclusive.

Bike Riders in Bamenda Strike to demand Release of Bikes.

In the early hours of Tuesday April 14, Commercial bike riders(Bensikin) within the city of Bamenda were stopping colleagues, from carrying passengers to their different destinations.

Those who attempted not yielding to the call for strike action, were caught in a fight or had their keys seized. Inhabitants within the city of Bamenda were cued at different junctions of the town with difficulty reaching their different destinations.

The bensikin riders say the reason behind their strike action concerns the whereabouts of their bikes, seized by the forces of law and order, stationed at different check points of the town.

Others suspected that their bikes have been sold to individuals living out of the region, and with these suspicions they are requesting for the return of their bikes in order to avoid the strike action from persisting.

"Bike riding is our means of survival, the administration started with registration at City council, passengers don't pay their fair well, fuel prices is still on the increase, recently bikes have been seized, yet owners cannot find their bikes. This is bad, and we demand that the bikes taken should be released" a bike rider, tells The Guardian Post.

" We have a problem and we believe our father the Governor of the Region will listen to us, we have been stopped to moved to his office but an administrator has invited us to talk and bring out solutions to the reasons we are striking for, we hope the message will calm my brothers, so that they can return home." A female rider tells the Press.

The riders staged a March to the Governor's office but were stopped on their way by the forces of law and order.
The Divisional Officer for Bamenda 1, Gilbert Guibai Baldena came down to calm down flares and advice them to abide by the laws and asked their representative to come to the office for dialogue.

Though the meeting didn't hold on Thursday April 16th, the City Mayor, Achombang Tambeng Paul adviced the bike riders to table their grievances to him and allow him concert with the Senior Divisional Officer for Mezam, Simon Emile Mooh, and ask them to get back to work in waiting.
