We did it!
We made history! Performing the Opening Ceremony for the first ever National Women’s Convention for Peace, at Palais des Congres Yaounde, on July 29th 2021. The event brought together over 1,800 people: 1,000 women from all over Cameroon, Women-led Civil Society Organization leaders as well as 600 invited dignitaries including the representative of the Prime Minister as Ambassadors and High Commissioners in Cameroon including His Excellency Richard Bale, the Canadian High Commissioner, as well as Salah Khaled, UNESCO Regional Director for Central Africa… The 20-minute animated and choreographed Spoken Word Performance entitled LIONESS, written/directed by Mac Alunge and performed by the Strawacademy Creative Arts Team, was created and served to reflect the life, love, role and hopes of the Cameroonian woman, as well as console and encourage every Cameroonian Women affected by the Violent Conflict in the Northwest, Southwest and Far North Regions. The performance also sought to inspire the Cameroonian Woman into living their dreams and becoming the best version of themselves.
