Located in west central Africa (See Map). Cameroon borders Nigeria and five other countries. Its southern Atlantic coastline is on the Gulf of Guinea. Roughly the size of California, the population is nearly 18 million. French and English are Cameroon’s official languages and more than 240 local languages are also spoken.
A politically and socially stable African nation, Cameroon’s economy is 70% agriculture-based. While its per-capital GPD is higher than a number of other African countries, large numbers of Cameroonians live in poverty, in particular farmers.
The volunteers and friends of CAAA have found Cameroonian people to be dignified, warm and welcoming. As a result of our work, Americans and Cameroonians have built strong relationships and life-long friendships. We invite and encourage others to experience the special beauty and warmth of this country and its people.
Our Partners in Cameroon
CAAA works in close partnership with the Presbyterian Church of Cameroon (PCC) and was invited to the country by PCC Moderator Rt. Rev. Dr. Nyansako-ni-Nku. Dr. Nku also heads up the All-Africa Conference of Churches.
When clergy speak, people listen - Because faith-based organizations and their representatives in Africa are well respected and influential in their communities, CAAA and the PCC united to create an approach to treat and prevent HIV/AIDS. The Presbyterian Church of Cameroon also has the infrastructure to provide health services and an ongoing successful track record.
Future plans include presenting the CAAA model program to other African countries. Dr. Nku of the PCC will help communicate our program to other nations in Africa and work to customize the program within their unique cultures.
