Empowering Youth: Strategic efforts bear fruit in Kumbo!


The Himalayan Institute Cameroon took part in the 2013 National Youth Day Celebration, an event that brought together thousands of people and more than one hundred youth groups in Kumbo. (Exhibits ranged from farm produce and furniture to dress-making and embroidery.) Himalayan Institute Cameroon was awarded First Place for an exhibition on arts and it’s involvement in Kumbo empowering youth groups and local artisans. Support these efforts by purchasing our Humanitarian TRAID products here.


This event provided a perfect publicity opportunity for our center – newly appointed delegates, civil servants recently transferred to Kumbo, teachers and businessmen all learned about HIC and the wonderful work they do in the community. As you can see, the officials used a desk, specially made by our very own School for Carpentry & Construction, for some of their work. Many of them promised to bring furniture orders to C&C; their local colleagues, some of whom already own our furniture, took the lead to talk positively about HIC.


Clara, who handles the awareness efforts for the Himalayan Institute Cameroon, learned about the exhibition opportunity with barely one week to spare, admirably coordinated with the rest of the team to prepare the necessary exhibit materials and ensure an attractive display for newly developed jewelry designs. Their 1st Place Award is no small achievement – it is the result of tremendous hard work and focused efforts by the entire HI Cameroon team. Join us in extending congratulations to them on a job well done!
