Sports and Civic Responsibility: RYRI and Elections Cameroon
The Rural Youth Redemption Initiative in its mission to engage young people in rural communities into active participation in Community development through Civic education and grassroots democracy; organises activities that can bring young people together (Sports, health campaigns etc) and uses same opportunities to get young people enrolled in the electoral register.
For young people to participate in the democratic process of a country it all starts by participating in choosing who their leaders are; either as candidates themselves or electorates. And of course, this all starts from registering to vote. Therefore it is incumbent on us to continue to educate young people to actively participate in the democratic and development process of their respective communities.
