Strengthening the capacities of barbers and hairdressers to fight COVID 19

Some participants of the workshop

YOP continues to build the capacities of young people to fight COVID-19 in and around Bamenda. A workshop was recently held with barbers and hairdressers to provide tips on how to relate to clients.

The sessions which took place at the City council Library was an occasion to answer some of the worries of the participants especially myths around the COVID 19 vaccines.

The 30 young professionals were also given face masks and hand sanitizers. At the end of workshop the participants confirmed that they had gathered and shared a lot.

The workshop was supported by Mission 21 Cameroon, a faith base international charity.
