On November 3, 2016, Ambassador Michael S. Hoza and his team visited Garoua to meet with local and traditional leaders, and a special program with community members at the American Corner in that city.   At that event, he met with a group of young people who regularly attend  weekly English conversation groups and other educational programs at the center.  The group thanked the Ambassador for the United States’ continued support for youth in Garoua. The Ambassador engaged them in discussions, including on their goals to promote educational opportunities for local youth.  He also answered questions from the audience, mostly focused on U.S. embassy plans for expanding educational and professional exchange opportunities for young people in the North and Far North Regions. One of the English conversation group participants read a poem she wrote about the impact the American Corner has had on her life.  Ambassador Hoza was delighted for the opportunity to meet these inspiring young people and talk to them about positive U.S. engagement in northern Cameroon.  “The United States is proud to partner with all Cameroonians.  From fighting malaria, HIV/AIDS, maternal mortality, promoting economic growth, and other programs, we are committed to strengthening our partnership with all Cameroonians in words as in deeds. On est ensemble!”
