Welcome to another post here on DC. We wanted to bring you a cool campaign that is the brainchild of an individual who we have featured several times on our Dulce Camer Top 50 talents to watch.
Olivia Mukam is a key player in the domain of social activism with a greater focus on inspiring and encouraging Cameroon's youths to be more engaging and responsible for their future.
So without further ado, read below about the "Am I Doing Something" project.
The reason why we launched this Campaign during youth week is to encourage the youths of our country to think beyond parties, myopic goals, snap out of victimisation, and ask themselves the JFK question "Do not ask what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."
Who are taking part?
We identified 35 young Cameroonians under 35 "Doing Something" through leadership and entrepreneurship in multiple fields such as Arts, Engineering, Health, Fashion, Music, Agriculture, ICT, Social Activism, Entrepreneurship, Sports. The goal is to showcase young-success-stories that will inspire thousands more to ask themselves the introspective question:
"Am I doing Something?"
The 35 youth leaders who came together to the shoot 3-minutes video asking with one voice "Am I Doing Something?" highlighted who they are, what they are doing, why they are doing it, how they are doing it, some of the challenges they are experiencing, how they overcame them, and a message to the youth.
The teaser video was launched yesterday (Leap Day) - to prepare everyone for the One-day-One-video campaign which we will be launching on March 15th. They will publish the 3-mins video of each one of the 35-doers on their Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/AmIDoingSomething
So there you have it! A great job and a great initiative!
Please join the campaign and spread the word. Watch out for the videos on their Facebook page too and on a TV or radio station near you in Cameroon!
