Training of community workers

The penultimate training of the year 2019 for community relays took place on October 5, 2019 in Mbele Mboke.

Because the vaccination of children aged 0 to 5 years is a serious problem, this meeting allowed the 12 community relays to learn more about the prevention of certain diseases through vaccination. Leprosy, being also a disease that is gradually spreading within the region, was also a topic that was discussed. Participants were made aware of this disease.

Serge Gandji, Communautaire worker in Sced village
These trainings have been helpful and we are seeing results. We have learned how to go to the villages and raise awareness in our communities because very often our people refuse to go to the hospital and prefer to treat themselves traditionally. Today's training was very enriching. I will return to my village to inform and raise awareness, with a particular focus on vaccinating children aged 0 to 5.”

Elephants don't just trumpet loudly. Much more often they communicate through a low-frequency rumble, which we humans often do not hear, but can sometimes feel.

Is it a boy? Or is it a girl?

Even habituated gorillas remain wild animals and can only be observed from a distance. That's why trying to identify the sex of a juvenile gorilla is like a game of chance, and even trained observers can hardly get more than a fifty percent hit rate.
