By Momoh Dero in Yaounde
The dust raised by the crowd-pulling Wushincho Youth International Conference that ended in Yaounde on October 9, 2021 is yet to settle, and might not settle soon.
This is so, especially, given that the 2nd edition of the Wushincho Youth International Conference had an impactful side event prior to the conference that focused on strengthening the human capacities of some selected youths.
The exercise which preceded the conference was aimed at changing the mindset of these youths to easily identify and grab opportunities that come their way. It also trained them on creating and running both small and large scale business ventures.
Franklin D. Roosevelt, a US President once opined that, “we cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.” Inspired by this, Momo Dero, a dynamic and young entrepreneur from Babessi , Kah Claris, Nyoh Issaac, Mvenyi Mattew, Godfrey Kunde, langeh Marcel, Ntobua Arouna , Pa Nahkuh, Gemouh Nestor, Ako Mohamed and host of others decided to initiate a move to build some Babessi youths for the future.
In this wise, the youths who applied and were selected were drilled on how to identify profitable jobs within ànd without Cameroon, and how to apply and grab the jobs.
They were taught on how to tailor their CVs and cover letters in styles that make them stand out unique and earn the confidence of potential employers.
The selected youths were also oriented on career opportunities and choices and how to go about those choices while still in school.
The usage of information and communication technologies, ICTs, and the internet to scoop for job opportunities was also imparted on the youths.
After the training, the selected youths thrilled the Wushincho Youth International Conference on October 9, 2021 with plausible projects they had crafted, and their change of mindsets to the admiration of HRH Ntsondonembio lll of Babessi who was flanked by his colleague, HRH Ndofua Zofua II of Babungo and Nyoh Israel, chairman of the Organising Committee.
