Fontem: Ongoing Genfest Preparations

Lots of greetings!
After a lot of effort to find an activity which could involve many youth to participate concretely in preparation for the Genfest, we decided to launch a Raffle draw. Through letters and personal contacts in Fontem and other towns, we sent appeals to donate items for the raffle. We felt the importance of involving as many as people as possible in this activity in order to receive the fruits and to go ahead together with the future projects of the Genfest. We had the first raffle draw last Friday during the Mariapolis and it was very successful. Besides, our Youth for a United World sold drinks and other items to raise funds. From these two activities, we are able to raise 200 Euro. The next raffle draw will be on 15th September.
During the last months, we managed to have brief activities. One of the ongoing activities is the Besali Project. This mutual exchange project comprises of an educational support programme and soya bean plantation.
In the end of May 2012, we had an educational activity among the “Our Lady Seat of Wisdom” College lower sixth students and final year students of GBHS Besali. We were all very happy with the reciprocal giving and receiving.
Throughout these summer holidays, we are trying to be linked with them, through the “Word of Life” and the 10 Stepping stones leading us towards the Genfest.
We remain very united with all of you spread all around the globe,
Marilen Nkafu and Eric Njinkeng.
