“Les Centres d’Accueil de l’Espoir” (CAES) have once again opened their doors, Saturday, March 15, 2014 to the representatives of the MIVA mission composed of CHRISTINE PARZER and BIRGIT GRUBER, structure based in Austria, supplier of the means of transport in the world in general and at Espoir Espoir Centers in particular.
This visit allowed our guests to better understand the activities carried out by the CAES. From the Education / Awareness component to the Nkoabang Center for the Promotion of Socio-Economic Activities (CPSEA), through the Orphans for AIDS and Vulnerable Children (OVCa) component.
The program previously approved by the CAES for this visit has undergone some modifications since the arrival of the MIVA mission to CAES. Two steps have marked this visit, namely: the visit of the NGO headquarters and the Efoulan Temporary Home Center.
As tradition dictates, the purpose of the visit to the CAES administrative offices was to present to them the activities of the Education / Awareness component on STI / HIV / AIDS, opportunistic diseases related to HIV / AIDS, family planning and PMTCT. . Linking these activities with those of the Supervision of OVCa in Institution and Community.
It is in this perspective that all the interventions of the headquarters staff are registered. After some enriching exchanges, the bulletin board immortalizing the different activities carried out by the CAES was presented and commented by Mrs TIBIDI born ONGUENE Aimee Josephine.
At the end of these exchanges, the Community Educators thanked the MIVA mission for the interest it showed in discovering the work that is done on a daily basis. After having noted some difficulties related to their work, they then expressed the wish to get motorcycles if possible to reach their areas of intervention more easily.
The second stage of the visit was devoted to the Efoulan Temporary Home Center. In the early afternoon, the MIVA mission was greeted upon arrival with a welcome song sung by the OVCa of the institution. It was then installed for viewing a CAES DVD summarizing the activities of the NGO since its inception in the 1990s to the present day.
At the end of the screening, they were very sensitive to the images and the warm welcome given to them by the residents of the center who sketched out some traditional dance steps.
The end of the visit was marked by a guided tour of the site, the signing of the “guestbook” and a family photo.
