The main objective of the training was to equipe young Cameroonians between the ages of 18 to 35 on practical skills and competences to actively engage in building peaceful democratic and stable communities in Cameroon.
The Executive Director of NewSETA told some 40 Cameroonians at the end of a leadership building workshop not to waste their whole time drinking or browsing and at the end of the day, start blaming the government.
“Instead use your time to build good leadership skills,” Ateki Caxton, Executive Director of NewSETA said.
For three days, the participants exchanged knowledge and build capacity and value needed in the quest for peace and democracy.
This year’s training which was in it’s 8th edition came at the time when the country is heading towards multiple elections with the closest being the up coming Senatorials of March 12, 2023,
After the seminar, the participants are now expected to go out and preach the skill acquired on “Democracy and Elections” with other Cameroonian youths and also encourage them to register massively in the Electoral list.
They were encouraged that the ballot box is the easiest way they can change Cameroon to a better country they wish to see.
NewSETA is private, non profit association created in July 2013 in the Republic of Cameroon to strengthen Youths and institutional capacities and actively engage communities in initiatives that improves social wellbeing.
As usual, the Workshop unfolded under the watchful eyes of the Executive Director of NewSETA Mr Ateki Seta Caxton, and members of the Association.
