As an Award Leader we are called up on to talk about The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award in many ways. The picture demonstrates our two days of activities at two different zones in Yaoundé - one at the Djoungolo social centre, with the other at la maison de l'espérance Yaoundé. Our aim was to sanatize and teach the population of the dangers of covid-19. We need to teach them hygene rules, such as taking a bath properly, the washing of hands after using the toilet, thus protecting ourselves and creating a healthy society. Organised under the theme of "ENGAGING VULNERABLE YOUNG PEOPLE IN THE FIGHT AGAINST COVID-19" on the Wednesday the 24 and Friday 26 August 2022: This was to show the great importance of these youths (aged between 12-23), despite their vulnerability in our society. We had to distribute the liquid soap and flyers in the Mfoundi market with those from the Djoungolo social center and the Atangabala market's with those from the "Foyer de l'espérance" Yaoundé on Wednesday and Friday respectively we distributed for close to an hour then went back to our point of departure The campaign was excellent though with some challenges. All in all we met at the DofE Award national office Yaounde where madam Epie Nicole the National Director, made some appraisal with some corrections. The campaign was amazing. I have been serving as a volunteer for the Award programme since 2021.
