Your age: 30

Name of your activity: National appropriation forum

 

What did you do?

I organized a national appropriation forum for the SDGs involving young Cameroonian activists and the Cameroon Youth Council. Deliberations during the forum were centered on goals that target sexual and reproductive health and family planning. The youth mapped out the unmet needs of SRH in the SDGs and gave recommendations on how government, community based organizations and youth associations could meet up to these needs. The idea of having an online platform of youth on family planning was accepted by all.

Projector, flip charts, bold makers, block notes, pens, pencils and folders.

38 people attended.
