Since its creation and expansion in 2014, we have undertaken restoration work for our Bafia centre. We are very grateful to the Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation (WLCF), which contributed £7,018 (or €7,840) of funds dedicated to this project. We smashed down the partition wall between two large study rooms to make one large room and the entire centre has been painted, spruced up, and repaired where necessary both inside and out.
Continuing the spirit of our achievements in Bangangté, our make-over transformed the centre into a bright cheerful, colourful and welcoming building. We have created a youthful and vibrant atmosphere we were looking for, full of colour.
The difference is remarkable and we are very proud of the final outcome. It had become necessary as the rainy seasons had really taken their toll on the pipes and gutters. A bridge has now been built allowing easier and more secure access to the centre.
We also decided to spruce up the back of the centre by planting shrubs and carving out a vegetable garden with cabbages and lettuces bursting through. Gardening duties are the responsibility of the young people who will be cultivating and harvesting the produce. These improvements will see completion in the last quarter of 2018.
