Project Leader Bio

Dalitso Chiwayula

I am a Cameroonian with origins from the Anglo-Saxon Cameroon. Political uprising and economic depreciation not forgetting the pandemic , are the issues of my community. I stand as a social activist and a youth educator, to raise awareness and to help rural areas of my country and to promote youth actions that aim at solving health issues (the mitigation of the spread of the Covid-19 virus). Due to the political situation, most rural areas have been cut off from the grid from network and electricity. Going to meet the people so as to give them the needed info on the pandemic and how to prevent it, has been my duty as a youth activist and community educator. I have together with my team; produced and distributed face masks and also informational materials to enable my community to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. I also suggest that individual consciousness should be exercised because the virus is real. I urge the young population of my community to remain positive and take action rather than waiting for the government to provide solutions.
