Plans for communities without Cluster Coordination Committees
(such as Tinto, Bafoussam, Nkambe, Kumbo, Dschang, Bongongo and Batibo.)

General objective: - to raise-up five tutors in each of these communities in four phases
The first phase (4 months) will start with a seminar, "Orientation for Investment and Service Opportunities", on the 21st January 2007 in Buea. The focus will be on raising Home Front pioneers for the localities mentioned, and will include Bahá’ís from the Western Provinces Region. The goal is to have a minimum of 10 friends complete book 3 and open up children classes in the targeted communities.

The second phase of this project will focus on training Junior Youth Animators using Ruhi Books 4 and 5. The estimated duration of this second phase of the project is 4 months.

The third phase will focus on the Training of teachers of the Faith using Ruhi Book 6. This phase will last for two months.

The fourth and final phase will be for the training of tutors. Ruhi Book 7 will be the main tool and the estimated duration is two months. These trained tutors will then expand the base of the pyramid.
