Local Communities in Cameroon are characterized by high levels of poverty and malnutrition. Moreover, the region’s productivity has been in recent years, increasingly affected by climate change.

Our activities over the last two years has seen us train over 200 women on best farm and management practices, train 30 youths on best community practice when it comes to local business development, and train 2 local traditional councils on best practices when it comes to management of community projects.
The Project aims to develop farmer organizations as a vehicle to introduce innovative technology and provide training, inputs, infrastructure, and other forms of assistance.
