Education: Hamza Danpullo, ASSOPEN Encourage Back To School In Bamenda II
By Raymond Dingana
The Association for the Promotion of Entrepreneurship (ASSOPEN) under the sponsorship of Hon.Hamza Baba Danpullo of the North West Regional Assembly (NWRA) has donated school needs to the Old Town Community in Bamenda II, North West Region of Cameroon.
The donation of school bags, books, pens, pencils among others came barely weeks to the start of the 2022/2023 academic year.
During the distribution exercise at Old Town in Bamenda, Friday August 19,2022, the First Deputy Mayor of the Bamenda City Council, Chi David Ndoh invited the beneficiaries to make good use of the items,
Don't collect the items and keep them at home. Make sure you resume school come September 5th,
he said and added that,
parents should encourage their children go to school. Education is all what a child needs to be a better person tomorrow.
Also present at the event was the Divisional Officer (D.O) for Bamenda II, Nicolas Nkongho Manchang who explained that,
This activity has added to our campaign to encourage back to school in Bamenda II. The Sub Division is hosting a huge number of internally displaced children, so i think the choice of Bamenda II wasn't a mistake.
The D.O also used the opportunity to invite other persons of good will to come to the aid of the children whom he said wish to be in school but lack the means.
He furthered that ASSOPEN is out to promote entrepreneurship and that if the kids don't go to school, their dreams of becoming entrepreneurs will end in a fiasco.
Mussa Oussini is the Communication Director of Baba Danpullo Group and ASSOPEN. He explained their mission in the following words:
ASSOPEN is a Humanitarian organization promoting the fight against illiteracy and unemployment. We support youths in all the ten regions of Cameroon. Not only Muslims are benefiting. We are here to support these children go back to school because it's the most important thing in life.
Hamza Baba Danpullo just like Ghejung Awunti all of the NWRA said their dream is to see kids attend classes and be successful in future.
We will like to see such donations from other organizations.We will work with them to promote initiatives that ensure our youths have a future, Ghejung pointed out.
With back to school just around the corner, with life not being fair to a lot of households in Bamenda, initiatives that will support pupils and students get education in a condusive environment will surely be welcomed by the communities.
