Cameroonians are known for their confidence, creativity, dance, music, spirituality and work ethic. 

Cameroon is speckled throughout with churches, mosques, homes of shamans and healers. Religious freedom is granted, religious harassment is prohibited and the government is secular. 

This region of the world has had to work hard to end administrative corruption, secure stable revenue outside of the agriculture sector, and end religious extremists who kill and harass civilians.

 

Our hope is that one day soon Cameroon will be known as a place of peace where civilians are free to make positive change.
Our goal is to help establish a healthy church within walking distance of every person on the continent!

Sista - Charlotte Dipanda Ft. Yémi Alad

Sista is my favorite Cameroonian artist music video. Charlotte Dipanda and Yémi Alade collaborate in this song about being sister friends. In this song you'll hear Charlotte singing in French, her native language Bakaka and Duala.  Her costar Yémi is Nigerian, of Yoruba and Igbo descent.
