Free-time activities

While the organization focuses much on recruiting persons that can help it in its growth, we are also thinking of making the volunteers take some leisure activities that can reinvigorate them and enable them learn the cultural peculiarities that the project communities have and discovering ways to immerse and adapt to the conditions. Most of the project communities have very rugged topography suitable for hiking and enormous climbing. It will be an exciting experience for the volunteers to visit these areas plus other official sites for tourism in the area. This will go alongside with periodic visits to cabarets to savor Cameroonian music and to entertain themselves. There are also sporting activities in the communities and soccer events where volunteer will watch and experience first hand local and national soccer league games in the community. Meanwhile, depending on the volunteers' leisure experiences, we can arrange for other site visits upon his/her request. The North West Region has very many touristic attractions that are very appealing to visitors who come to the region. The main City of the Region Bamenda, has an attractive picturesque view and is situated along a sloping.
