Activities to mark February 11: The National Gendarmerie educates the youth as part of the 58th youth day.
Gendarmes have established a tradition of working with the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Civic Education, as part of the National Civic Education Programme through Moral, Civic and Entrepreneurial Rearmament (PRONEC-REAMORCE), to reach out to young students, pupils and associations, in order to educate them on today's scourges.

In Dena, Mbe division, Vina subdivision in the Adamawa Region, the youth learned about the dangers of identitarian closure, the use of drugs and other psychotropic substances, the responsible use of social media and information technology, national emblems, and they were provided a short presentation of careers in the National Gendarmerie. These presentations were made by Dr BINGONO BINGONO François, a sociologist, and Warrant Officer NDJOCK SIELEYE Achille Junior, who works in the National Gendarmerie.

This meeting of about 3 hours was attended by youth from all over Mbe subdivision, under the guidance of His Majesty Issa ABA, chief of Dena village and DII Students Union, with support from the National Youth Council, Adamawa regional chapter.

Captain NOTE MAKO Désirée, Head of Defence Bureau within the Defence and Civic Action Service of the National Gendarmerie, supervised the National Gendarmerie team that was deployed at Government Bilingual High School Bertoua on Monday 05 February 2024, and on Tuesday 06 February 2024 at Teerenstra Private Catholic College, from 10 a.m.

This outreach programme will be rounded off in Yaounde at the Youth Village, from 08 to 10 February 2024.

Through this campaign, the National Gendarmerie intends to help reduce the lack of civic spirit among the youth and to educate them.
