    Activity Report

    The total number of Public Viewing in Africa participants in both nations reached 24,000, while around 4,800 people took the HIV tests offered at the same time. Both figures far exceeded our targets.
    In Cameroon we teamed up with the UNDP (United Nations Development Programme) and visited four areas, including upcountry areas, where we screened eight matches in total. In Ghana we worked with JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency). There we toured 15 areas, including some remote areas without electricity, to provide the local people with 18 match broadcasts.
    After the tour, most of the equipment used for the Public Viewing was donated to the two countries. We also provided training for the local staff so they can make optimum use of it in the future.

    Kids from Cameroon and Japan Create Banners Together

    Earlier this year, primary school kids in Nakatsue, located in the southern part of Japan, made three banners to express their support for the Cameroon National Team. The Japanese children decorated half of each banner with cloth cutouts; these half-finished banners were then taken to the Public Viewing in Africa venues where local children who came to watch the matches completed them. The three banners co-created by the children from the two countries have now been divided up, with Cameroon, Nakatsue Primary School, and Sony receiving one each.
    On 3 September, 2010, a ceremony was held at Nakatsue Primary School in Hita City for the returning of one of the banners. The banner was given back to the children in the presence of the Ambassador of Cameroon, H.E. Dr. Pierre Ndzengue, and Mr. Yasumu Sakamoto, former Mayor of Nakatsue.
