WHAT GIVES ME HOPE.

Posted January 21, 2020 from Cameroon

let this little light of mine shine from Cameroon to Africa and the world. 

From being a helper in the quarter to the Region . And now being awarded a "CAMEROON HEROES'

       O​​​ne evening when l was trying to go through my wasap messages, l notice l have been added in a group call GO-AFRICA INNICIATIVE CAMEROON.( GAI- CAM). The name of this group was final nominees for the Cameroon heroes award..  l feel nervous  and did not even care to know what it was all about..l quickly disafilated myself from the group and thought it may be a scammer.

Two days later l realize that l have been added to the group again. I scrolled down to see if l know any of the numbers,to no avail.now l look for the group''s administrator and call .to ask what was all about the group.This person pick the call and l realize it was a man talking.

Me-- Good evening sir 

Him---Good evening madam Neat Cosmetic.

Me--may l  know you sir 

Him- I am the manager of GAi -CAM.and l said I have been added into a group.may l know what it is all about sir. He directed me to the Facebook page . That is when l seach and got to know what it was all about.,

I call him back to ask who nominated me .he said madam be resasured that when you are doing something good to your community , people will appreciate you in many ways. Somebody nominated you but you don't need to know the person. So madam you have been nominated and the award ceremony is on the 18 January 2020.in Yaounde. Congratulations madam  end of call.

I prepared for two weeks and had to travel  for 19hr to and from Yauode for the ceremony. Thanks be to God l am back and it all when well. I made new friends and had some time to relax with them.

So that is what give me hope that the seed l sew in my community.must grow dispite the ouths. Dispite the crisis in our country . I must do my best to help the women and girls in my country.
