I started my volunteer activities at COMINSUD on the 10th of November 2016. Upon my arrival I was welcomed by the coordinator for COMINSUD. I and the COMINSUD workers started the day by cleaning the offices of COMINSUD.This helps to portray the level of cleaning responsibility of the COMINSUD workers.
At about 9:30 am a meeting was organized cheered by Mr Bruno who briefed everybody about the agenda of the week and continued with an opening prayer from Ms Sharon. It was proceed by discussion about current event happening of the previous week such as president Biya’s 34th anniversary as president of Cameroon, the train derailment at Esseka that left more than 500 persons wounded and 70 deaths etc.
Both volunteers and COMINSUD workers also reported a summary of work done during the previous week in the domains like Ecokids project, report on privatization and environmental impacts on Ndu Cameroon, and the training of peace volunteers and everybody outlined his plan of work for the current week.
After the meeting, we received lectures on a COMINSUDs demonstration during the Global Handwashing Day. I was also briefed on how to start working on youth and business development. During my second day, were taught on how to write articles to be pasted on the COMINSUD’s website.
One can conclude that COMINSUD has also an objective of training its volunteers to become effective workers of NGO’S and agents for other developmental purposes.
