Yesterday, the Pan African Institute of Development Buea hosted the first series of human rights seminars organised by Youth Partnership, a network of different organisations including Community Centre for Integrated Development, @Ayef, @Yalda-Paidwa, Vision in Action Cameroon, IBuild Africa and Girls Excel.

The event rallied together over 51 young people from different civil society and academic institutions in the South West Region to discuss the aim and objectives of human rights and how to localise the concept in Cameroon to capture the perspectives and contributions of young Cameroonians.

There were different presentations from the key note speaker prof Uwem Essia, who is the director of PAIDWA, Buea and those from the panel which included Barrister Clifford Akonteh, Mr Hasel Tanteh and our very own Ms Delphine Konda. These presentations highlighted the different human rights instruments available at the national, regional and international levels but stressed on the importance of implementation.Y
