Based on nine (9) activities, the Anglophone Refugee Empowerment Project in the Commune of Dschang and Environs (PARADE) aims first to contribute to the inclusion and capacity building of English-speaking displaced people residing in four neighbourhoods (sites) in the city of Dschang: Siteu (1), Paid-ground (2), Foto (3) and Foréké (4). Secondly, it is part of the promotion of the socio-economic integration of young English-speaking girls with a favourable impact on environmental management, particularly waste and garbage management.
The Speaker’s House is a project born of a scientific approach to oral fact analysis. It includes an “oral library” and several other cultural accessories. It is also a meeting and exchange space for speakers. CDA hopes to create ten speaker’s houses in the ten regions of Cameroon by 2035.
“Africa-Gawlo” is a project to produce and broadcast a television programme of structured and contradictory debate on books in Cameroon, taking into account oral traditions. A basic French entertainment program, it is intended to be educational, entertaining (animation) and competitive for a maximum of 120 minutes (two times) per recording. Its ultimate goal is to contribute to facilitating access to books (content and containers) for young people, promoting playful reading through public speaking, and popularizing traditional and modern oral practices through the media.
The Oratorium School of Public Speaking trains future experts in public speaking, communication and leadership from Cameroon and the continent. The curricula offered range from six months to twelve years. The school is present in Dschang, Douala and Yaoundé. To join the school, contact the General Secretariat.
