At every bus stop, the local authorities expressed their sincere thanks to the President of the Republic and the National Coordinator of the plan for effectively implementing projects which skeptics said were impossible.

Andrew Nkea, Archbishop of the Bamenda Metropolitan Archdiocese and member of the steering Committee highlighted that the plan was actually building better.

"We have benefitted in a very big way from the renovation of schools, and to ensure that children go back to school in better conditions than before.

"The reconstruction plan has respected the principle of building back better" Archbishop Andrew Nkea told the Press.

The plan since it's inception has had as slogan to build better.

At the Islamic Nursery and primary school Old town where the plan has invested 27 million Francs, the Manager of the school, Muntari, was very happy. He stated that since the completion of the school, it has grown tremendously.

"In 2008, we had just 65 pupils but since the structure was completed, the enrollment has gone up to 359.

"We still have some space for some new classrooms" the Manger of the school pleaded.

Sacred Heart Nursery and Primary school 

At Sacred heart, is a complete Nursery and  primary school constructed from scratch. The school has 8 classrooms, 8 toilets for the primary section and four for the nursery section, a counselling office and an office for the head teacher, amounting to 55 million francs CFA.

Saluted for Thier resilience when people were hostile towards sending their children to school, Balungeli Confiance Ebune was greeted to a special scenario at the Inclusive Baptist Nursery and primary school Nkwen.

Here, they was a sign language interpreter who could conveyed the message to the deaf while the teachers were apt in taking care of the kids with down syndrome.

The Minister was very appreciative that pupils with mobility impairment could access their classrooms with ramps.

This according to executors of the plan means no child would be left behind reasons why water points constructed in Bamenda III and Bamenda I subdivisions were very low so all and sundry can fetch portable water.

In Bamenda III, the reservoir was extended while in Bamenda I a complete new water storage  and transmission was constructed.

In all, speaker after speaker expressed their sincere wishes to the plan hoping that more funders can come onboard to better the lives of citizens in the North West and South West Regions.

With some whose livelihoods were completely wiped out, the plan seeks to bring them back to standard better than they left it.

Poultry farmers who have benefitted from this plan attest that their inputs were handed to them to grow the chicks from start to finish.

With new partners financing the plan, there is hope that many more communities and persons will benefit.
