Celebrating 50yrs of service to Cameroon
Peace Corps Cameroon
Its a hot and sunny afternoon in Yaoundé Cameroon as the Peace Corps family busily prepares for the upcoming milestone celebration, 50 yrs of Peace Corps serving in Cameroon! On November 21st 2012, in the Palais de Congres atop Nkol-Nyada, a freshly trained group of volunteers will swear-in before Mme Chantel Biya, Mr le Prime Ministre, US Ambassador Robert Jackson, Country Director Jacquelyn Sesonga, Peace Corps Staff, and the hundreds of active volunteers and counterparts that will come together for the milestone ceremony.
This historic and important event cannot be complete without your participation and support! Following the swearing-in ceremony we will put Peace Corps on display to the Cameroonian public in an open forum themed, “Focusing our efforts to meet Cameroon’s needs”. Because this event is as much about celebrating your contributions to Cameroon and the Peace Corps community as it is about looking toward the future, we want to do everything to include your experiences in the story we tell on this day.
