The combination of political instability and violence in the English-speaking part of the country has left Cameroon in a highly vulnerable situation. In addition to this, there are hate messages and invective from some tribes on social networks and even on some media. This even involves some political, administrative and traditional authorities.
These different situations have several effects:
- A lack of trust between the leaders, the elected officials and the citizens;
- A weakening of the concept of living together and of the unity of the country, despite the implementation of the Bilingualism and Multiculturalism Commission by the government, which is taking time to bear fruit;
- And a lack of interest, especially among young people, in the political life of their country.
This project is an initiative that aims to encourage the participation of young people aged from 15 to 35 years old in the management of local public affairs. Moreover, it aims to promote the consolidation of national unity. As a matter of fact, the main victims, but also the main targets of armed groups or political manipulation are these young people. And if we consider the fact that they constitute more than 60% of the population of Cameroon, the greatest investment in the youth is the best way to build a Cameroon where it is good to live together.
