OK people..it is events like this, organized by associations of this calibre that make me very proud of my ROOTS. I think I have the right to say that I am “Nso to the Bone”…
I can answer the question “What/Where is your compound?”….lololol..(Sorry, inside joke)…My compounds are:Maternal – “Mbonyar, Ntsenkar, Mbikiyy”, Paternal – ” Kah, Ngairin, Ntseng”..I know my lamnso spelling is terrible…but i applaud my effort..lol! My grandfather settled in “Ndzengvev”……OK “gvev” means “chicken”…so go figure…The youth section of NGVEVDA (Development Association) is “Won Ngvev”,translation “chicks”…….
On a more serious note, this is the EVENT you want to attend!!It will be a display of Culture and leadership in community & sustainable development.
“….In 2008-2009, through our partnership with Kumbo Development and Orientation Centre (KUDOC), we provided school supplies to 1,622 elementary school children in six schools in three
subdivisions of Bui Division, namely: Jakiri, Nkum and Kumbo.
Nine schools have been identified in Nkum, Oku, Mbiame, Kumbo and Jakiri subdivisions to receive school supplies. Cost is about$3 per kid. Goal-3378 elementary school children”
BFU-USA needs your support to achieve this very noble initiative and much more!!
