“Every organisation works based on results and it is the case with PENASED. We recruited a number of persons with the competence we are looking for. As such it was important for us to restructure the organisation”.
The newly recruited volunteer for the post of Programmes Assistant, Kegoum Ketchstang Paul tells us his reason for choosing PENASED.

“What motivated me to chose working for PENASED is to start the Christian view in bringing solutions to humanbeing problems in a multicultural country like ours, Cameroun. Then, my motivation to work for social justice, a good social health, education and human rights. At PENASED, the four pilars are concerned with that”.
Newly appointed Administrative Assistant, Anwi Denise tells us her motivation to work with the organisation.

“I have been a follower of PENASED since 2019 and I have watched them change lives of young cameroonians who are underprivileged. Also, I was motivated by their four pillars, maternal and child wellbeing, career orientation, entrepreneurship and social Inclusion which guides them in serving humanity”. Denise said.
Much is expected from the new volunteers. The assistant account and finance officer, Nda Marius says he is ready to serve humanity through PENASED.
“Humanity is considering others as yourself, so working with PENASED enables me to put my own contribution to help others. I might not have that chance to hold somebody’s hand to show love to him/her, but my knowledge and experience, through PENASED permit me to touch that person in need. It’s a type of collaboration to assist and help those that are not privileged in our society”.
As the second half of the year continues to unfold, PENASED proceeds with their activities to serve humanity as the Executive Director says.
“PENASED works mostly with the underprivileged and vulnerable population. We have trained one hundred underprivileged children from 5 regions of the country in photography and we plan to go back on the field to train more. This time we plan to work with eight regions, targeting pigmies, mbororos, albinos amongst other minorities/underprivileged children. In each of these regions, twenty children will be selected and trained. We equally have activities geared towards health, involving malaria and HIV/AIDS amonst others geared towards the improvement of humanity”.
With the new team at the organisation it is hoped that more lives will be touched through their humanitarian activities.
