Cameroon: Official opening of Jardin Eden centre

It’s with much emotion that the new  SBA centre Jardin Eden, in the heart of Yaoundé, was officially opened on 8th November 2011, by Serge Betsen and the English delegation.

On this occasion, we were pleased to welcome Miss Anne Gain who is the French Ambassador’s wife.  All 13 volunteers were engaged in the presentation by our centres to our guests including a show prepared by the children, who were very impressed by Serge. Songs, dances and snacks gave the rhythm to this afternoon of plenty of laughs and exchanges. The ceremony ended with an intense dance to folk music from a local group in the centre’s garden with all the guests, who were glad to have shared these happy moments with the children and volunteers of the centre. The centre opened in September. It welcomes more than 30 children daily. The activities are organized as follows: a scholar support workshop, a library-toy workshop, a hobby workshop (songs, dances, DIY etc…). Many thanks to Jutta and Cécile who are jointly responsible for the centre for their role in the success of this project.
