After this presentation of the High Table, the next presentation that followed was a background explanation about the Noela Lyonga Foundation which was done by Sharon Menkem a volunteer with the Foundation. Her presentation explained that, the Noela Lyonga Foundation is a Non – governmental organisation with headquarters in Buea, the south west region of Cameroon. The Foundation has as vision to inspire people develop themselves and communities at large and it operates under four (4) departments: promoting a healthy lifestyle, providing volunteer placements, community empowerment and the rehabilitation and reintegration of inmates. She also gave details that the foundation has received national and international acknowledgements among which are: the 11th Points of Light in the Commonwealth from Her Majesty the Queen of England, International Leading Organisation in the Foreign Commonwealth Office with an honorary visit to Sheffield, Manchester and London (UK) and Ghana. The 5th Most Influential Youth led Organisation in Cameroon, the Youth Empowerment Actors award, the MOGI Global Leadership awards among others.

These highlights about the Noela Lyonga Foundation ushered the next presentation which was a global and inspirational musical interlude which was done by Miss Moh Harriet a UNESCO Peace Ambassador and an Alumni Volunteer of the Noela Lyonga Foundation. Her interlude was followed by another entertaining presentation from the University of Buea fan club who presented an African dance which officially welcomed Miss Noela Lyonga to the high table.

From the above entertainment moments, we moved to the first speaker in the person of Dr. Ayuk Justine the Vice Dean of the Faculty of Social and Management Sciences who presented on how to sustain a positive and productive networking for your personal growth and that of our communities at large. Her presentation was followed by a Fashion Parade by young female paraders from Buea.

Mr. Sona Roland who was representing the Divisional Officer of Buea Sub-District was the next speaker. His topic focused on how we all can grow a humanly conscious lifestyle. It was an amazing presentation as he also focused on how we can sustainably leave our comfort zones and become the best versions of ourselves. His presentation was followed by a poetic and dramatic presentation from Stage life who presented about African Hatred among themselves and need for the restoration of peace and Unity among Africans.

Our great mentor and father of the day, Professor Ernest Molua, the Registrar of the University of Buea, gave an amazing presentation on how to be sustainably confident and productive in achieving your goals. He emphasized on the need to always face the realities of life, be ready, information oriented, self-discovery, disciplined in leadership and effectiveness in time management. After this session, the platform was opened for questions and answers.

She presented on how to successfully work with others for your personal growth and general team targets. Her presentation gave an open door to the next speaker Mr Che Herbert (Founder/Chief Executive Officer of Touching Lives International) who presented on encouraging peaceful cohesion to give Africa a new name. This was followed by another presentation from Mr Tetu Hilary (Volunteer Coordinator – Noela Lyonga Foundation) who presented on why we should promote peace in all our engagements with other people.

The programme started with a detail presentation about the Noela Lyonga Foundation which was done by a volunteer Sandra Ekane. This was followed by another presentation by another volunteer Sharon Njoh who talked about the importance and power of sharing.  Sharon explained to the kids how they should learn to share knowledge and anything worth sharing that can help another person be a better version of themselves. This presentation was followed by another presentation from Sala Gisele a volunteer at the Noela Lyonga Foundation. Gisele’s presentation was focused on the Power of your smile. She explained that, when you smile, you give a positive arena of joy around you and that she considers smiling as one of the most important things in her life. She quotes that ‘’when you smile, the devil is angry and he will stay away from you and good tidings will keep coming your way.

Our very own friend Elizabeth Esoh who inspired us to make the visit a reality also shared her story and urged the children to consider engaging in any support business they can do that can help them have a source of income even while they are going to school. Miss Lyonga Mwindo Noela, our founder and Chief Executive officially handed over the donated items alongside our team of

volunteers.

Donation St. Glory Orphanage - Noela Lyonga Foundation

As a feedback appreciation message from the Children and their lead guide, they shared with us a brief history of the orphanage. St. Glory Orphanage was created in 2007 and has its authorization to operate from the Regional Delegation of social affairs in Buea. They survive thanks to donations and volunteers who offer support to the children. With a total of 22 children in the orphanage, 20 are students and 2 are not. Prisca is the eldest and she is looking forward to write her GCE Exams. The visit was awesome and the children were happy to see the items brought for them.  Our visit ended with outdoor games made of spelling drills and step movements with wishes. We took Group pictures and departed.

We strongly believe in community mindset transformation geared towards positive thinking for development. As volunteers, encouraging Grassroot community development coaching has been one of our most interesting activities so far.

Since 2017 we have engaged volunteers in empowering grassroot communities. We have been able to create volunteerism clubs in some of these communities we engage with. We continuously hope we can together assist people in grassroot communities engage in activities that can foster their personal development and that of their communities at large. Working with volunteers of diverse backgrounds has inspired us to keep visiting communities with diverse objectives and diverse results. We are always grateful to our partners and volunteers who serve in our Grassroots community development projects.

We sincerely appreciate the Faculty of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine in the University of Buea for their enormous support in some of our past Grassroot community development projects. We continuously send appreciation to Prof. Ernest L. Molua, the former Dean of the Department and current Registrar at the University of Buea for his resilient support to our activities. As we continue to engage in community development projects bringing you on board in anyway will be a blessing in these communities.
