The Civil Peace Service Program of Bread for the World, Cameroon has launched a five-day training on radio drama production and theatre aimed at engaging its partners for the promotion of peace and social cohesion. The training workshop is holding on the theme "Radio Drama: A veritable tool for the Promotion of Peace".

Opening the workshop, the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon, PCC, represented by the PCC National Peace Coordinator, Rev. Nta William Nche, disclosed that the workshop is happening at a time when all avenues have to be used to communicate and preach peace. Using radio drama and theatre as a tool is a stitch in time, he said.

He reiterated that CPS is expecting the best from the participants because they will be able to create and use the acquired skills to do more things and promote peace in their different organizations.

"We expect that participants have a mastery of radio drama and we will do a production which will be broadcast on radio stations across the country", Ntui Oben Obi Agbor said.

Holding at the PCC Synod Office in Buea, the Radio Drama Production workshop has brought together participants from some 17 partner organizations of the CPS program in Cameroon.

Dzebam Godlove Ayaba, a participant representing ISTP Bamenda said that the workshop is very timely especially when it comes to his background as an educationist.

"From my background as an educationist, it is very important that there are different components that come into play to use to teach. With this, when people listen to different voices it brings a different dimension", Dzebam Godlove said.

The five-day workshop is facilitated by Julius Nzang from the USA, Christian Achaleke of the Local Youth Corner, and Tata Isaac.

In the early morning meditation, the Chaplain of the Synod Office, Rev. James drawing inspiration from the book of Psalms 105:1 called on the participants to Be thankful always.

The Cameroon Civil Peace Service country program is part of the global CPS program. The program supports civil society organizations that are committed to the constructive non-violent dealing of conflicts and peacebuilding, as well as strengthening social cohesion in Cameroon. It aims to prevent the escalation of violence.
