LOYOC’s Far North Regional Office Celebrates the National Youth Day by Strengthening Students Resilience Amidst COVID-19
As a prelude to the celebration of Cameroon’s National Youth Day with theme « Youth resilience and opportunity and challenges in times of COVID-19 », LOYOC’s Far North regional office organized a round table to this regard. The round table had as theme « Young actors in the prevention of hate speech and the promotion of peace and social cohesion ”. This took place at the Ouro-Tchédé high school on February 09, 2021.
This activity was implemented to educate students on the prevention and eradication of hate speech and raising awareness of the reinforcement of barrier measures against the spread of Covid-19 in schools. Loyoc also organized this to initiate students in the prevention of hate speech, hatred and violence in schools, while reminding them of the importance of respecting all barrier measures against Covid-19 as well as reducing the risk of contamination.
Great was the enthusiasm of the students in attendance about this activity. »I am very happy with everything I learned today because I discovered the little things I do that can cause violence in school. I therefore pledge to avoid problems in school and also follow the Covid-19 barrier measures » said a student. They were very interactive in relation to the theme as well as the school Administrators present who appreciated and encouraged this initiative.
Sending a clear message to the prospects that the organization has their welfare in mind and considers it as its priority by stating “How Can I help you” will go a long way in making them open up easily. Though it is not easy to please all the consumers all the time, it will definitely open up the channel of communication and bring in suggestions for new and better communication.
In short, for an organization looking to bring in or develop more leads, it needs to bring in a major shift in its style of working from marketing and only sales to problem detecting and problem-solving.
