HOFNA Cameroon Uses Songs, Drama, Debate to Build Safe Schools, Communities(PhotoNews)

 The event which took place at the Bamenda Congress Hall on December 10, 2015 was described by parents, teachers and students as a milestone marked the “16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence,” organized by a Bamenda based nongovernmental organization, Hope For the Needy Association HOFNA Cameroon. Welcoming participants, HOFNA Cameroon Director Chongwain Christelle said that HOFNA is committed more than ever to work together with youths to end gender based violence in and around schools, and communities. The evidence of this practice she added is that the male gender sometimes discriminates over females because of their chauvinistic beliefs. She called on everyone to join the crusade to elude this belief so much so that the education of the girl child is fostered. Holding on the theme “Together, let us build safe schools and communities for All, especially Girls to thrive”, the Bamenda event kick started the official launching of a project code named “Creative Arts for Girls’ Empowerment.”
