Good day, I am Gideon Ticha, an American citizen with 14 years of rich and priceless experience as a member of the Meta Community. I recently visited my extended family in the village of Zang -Tabi Meta, in Cameroon, Africa, which is where I was born. While I was there, the indigenes pleaded with me to take their daily challenges to my country of America and to ask for help and assistance on their behalf. Touched by compassion for the people I met in Zang -Tabi and its neighboring villages (young and old, ill, frail and poor) I wish to make a fervent appeal for help on behalf of these people who cannot afford regular meals and sometimes go hungry, lack access to drinkable water sources, have no tools or technology to increase farm harvest, and have no books and teachers to encourage youngsters to go to school who, based on their moral and community values helped to give me and others like me a great start in life. Most of these people are family members and have a long history and tradition of being great teachers, mentors and leaders and who passed on for many generations a high standard of moral and community values.
