Cameroon

Cameroon:

A National Conference for English speaking Sisters was offered November 29 to December 5, 2006 in Bamenda, Northeast Province, Cameroon. Local Sisters offered another AACSS conference for French speaking Sisters August 26 to September 1, 2007, in Bafoussam. The AACSS sponsored the participation of twenty local women religious in a certified five-month training program for counselors in Anglophone Cameroon.

 

Sisters who train younger sisters in Cameroon participated in an AACSS conference from September 26 to 28, 2008. Major superiors in Cameroon gathered for an AACSS conference from January 19 to 20, 2009 with AACSS Co-Directors. Local Sisters, realizing the need for greater networking and collaboration, met in November 2010 with the AACSS Co-Directors and a bilingual priest who is an experienced counselor for a three day conference to discuss significant steps towards developing collaboration among themselves and with outside agencies. Further, local Sisters in Cameroon have opened an AACSS office in Yaoundé to further the work of the Conference.
