Cameroon #7-FACTS Launching, Oct. 09

Just after getting back from the East, I was involved in the launch of the Fight Against Corruption Through Schools (FACTS) project, a big deal for CRS. As with the rest of the country, corruption is a huge problem in schools, and the program aims to address some of the root causes and hopefully change them.

We launched the project at the Palais des Congrès, the main conference center in Yaoundé. It was a big deal, with almost 1,500 people, the Minister of Education, one of the main Catholic bishops in the country, and more. It was fun to get dressed up as well, and see all my co-workers in their Sunday (or Wednesday, I suppose) best.
