Cameroon National Day
For all Cameroonians, the celebration of the National Day bears a profound meaning and symbolizes our honor and pride. SOS Restore Hope, Africa Cosmos, IMab Consulting, Cameroon Natioanl Council (CNC), and the Cameroonian Community in Illinois with the Cameroon Embassy, are helping our community members to remember and celebrate our shared experience, traditions, holidays, identities, struggles and aspirations. Our activities lead to a greater sense of community and empowerment. In view of the significantly growing Cameroonian population in the state of Illinois, building and sustaining a sense of community is our primary objective.
The event will consist of two sessions. A conference “Building relationship between Cameroon and Illinois” and Cameroonian art exposition will take place in the morning; In the evening, a gala will gather representatives of several countries including diplomatic officers, government officials, high-profile businessmen, high-level Illinois dignitaries, representatives of the Cameroonian community, and media elites. This will be an occasion for all involved to pay respect and tribute to Cameroon by honoring Cameroon’s diplomatic corps, namely His Excellency the Ambassador, with speeches on matters related to the general interest.
