Summer Camps in the past

Our International Summer Work Camp is an annual event.  It aims at bringing together youth from different parts of the world to promote solidarity and and foster cultural exchange.

Our first three camps took place in Yaoundé. Young people came from Japan, France and Brazil and Canada. We laughed and learned, worked and played. We made friends.

Some of us return every year:  ”it was so exiting to discover new cultures and to share these wonderful experiences with new people. It was truly an event worth taking part in.” Check out what participants say.

Our Newsletters share stories of participants, and there are many more pictures on facebook.
