HQ and Branches of COIC
by: Ndive Mokake T.

It is to be recalled that Cameroon OIC started in Buea, as its Headquarters, and now has two Branches, namely: OIC Kumbo in Bui Division and OIC Wum in Menchum Division of the Republic of Cameroon.

The two branches and the mother COIC Headquarters of Buea are doing a great job in poverty alleviation among the underprivileged, underemployed and unemployed youth, by providing them with tradable skills that respond to current and evolving job markets.

Fighting the consequences unemployment among the youth
by: Ndive Mokake T.(Board member, COIC, Buea,Cameroon).

Based on the Mission and Vision of COIC and subsequent tradable skills training programmes, the overaching problem of youth unemployment and its consequences is receiving considerable attention.

The vulnerable youth and under privileged should enroll massively into COIC. They need the support of their various communities and other people of good will within and beyond their localities.
The international community could also provide assistance for we all live today in a global village.

Congratulations to most of the ex-trainees who have created self-employment with little or no assistance for intial venture capital.
COIC--please keep up the good work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
