The Reconciliation and Development Association (RADA) has launched a new initiative aimed at empowering youths to lead peace-building efforts in Cameroon’s conflict-affected regions.

This program, which includes training sessions and workshops, focuses on equipping young people with the necessary skills and knowledge to champion peace initiatives in their communities.

The initiative, launched in Bamenda, targets youths from the North-West and South-West regions, which have been severely impacted by the ongoing Anglophone crisis. Participants will undergo extensive training in conflict resolution, mediation, and community leadership.

“We believe that the youths are key to sustainable peace in our country. By empowering them with the right tools and knowledge, we can create a ripple effect that promotes harmony and understanding across communities,” said a RADA spokesperson during the launch event. The spokesperson emphasized the importance of involving young people in peace processes to ensure long-term stability and growth.

Participants have expressed optimism about the program’s potential. “This training has given me hope and the belief that we can make a difference. I am eager to take what I’ve learned back to my community and work towards a peaceful future,” said one of the youth participants.

As Cameroon continues to grapple with the effects of the Anglophone crisis, initiatives like RADA’s youth empowerment program are crucial in building a foundation for lasting peace. By investing in the youth and equipping them to be champions of peace, there is hope for a more harmonious and united future for the country.
