By the end of the school year last year the Center was not operational following the Ministerial decision asking the population to avoid crowd and shut down schools to prevent the spread of the Corona virus. This had serious negative effects on the activities of the Center. That notwithstanding there has been relative calm in Buea compared to other towns in the Region that has enabled the reopening of schools for the 2020/2021 academic year following the government’s upliftment of lockdown on schools and other social gatherings. With the return to normalcy in the area, Management of the Center decided to keep activities on hold. However, on request of community enrolment was opened up in October 2020.
