Binju-Nkambe Parish Youth Rally


This morning some one hundred young people aged between 15 and 27 came into the main mission for a parish youth rally. The main theme of discussion has been the Holy Father’s message for World Communications Day which comes up tomorrow. Some of them fell asleep as the parish priest digested the message to them.
After listening to the message they posed in front of the parish Church for a family photo before rushing on foot to the cyber café which is planted in town for their own use. Many of them have never heard about the internet, but they are all eager to learn. We are operating the internet café from the commercial centre of Nkambe with a wireless relay to the parish house in Binju because otherwise we could not raise the money in Binju for paying our ISP every month. At the moment we have ten computers in the cyber café, a scanner, and a printer. Bernard Afor and Immaculate Giwa are the first young people who are offering time to manage the café. We still need to get some training for them to manage our weblog as well. We remain ever so grateful to our friends and benefactors who have helped us to come this far.

I am sorry I have tried to put some pictures in here, but I am not succeeding right away.
Robert Tanto.
