The session was broadly divided into 2 phases: “The Theory” and “The Practical” phases.
“The Theory” phase started with an enriching brief presentation on personal development. This followed by the presentation on HERO Cameroon: Focusing on its vision, mission and objectives. The hierarchy was presented too. It was filled with passion from the presenter, as the audience was keen and very interactive. Presentation of each members ensued stating their names, occupation and passion. This session was concluded by presenting the key challenges of HERO among which finances and commitment.
“The Practical” phase aimed at creating the spirit of teamwork, collaboration, personal and team development. The proposed calendar of activities for the year were given by each of the 3 working groups: Community Educators, Social media and Translation team and the Research branch. The research group proposed to blend their activities with the community educators whereas the Social Media team, gave themselves the task to work round the clock especially as they seemed to be an invisible branch from the derivative of the word HERO. This phase ended with 3 team building exercises. 2 outdoors and 1 indoor. The feedback and lessons learnt were enormous. Emphasis on the social media pages was made by the head.
It ended with an unexpected heavy gesture from the HERO executive committee board handing gifts of appreciation to volunteers, Dave Tazinkeng and Fonkou Steve as encouragement for their commitment and hard work.
