I am extremely enthusiastic to join this credible network. I am a talented Cameroonian social worker and jurist. I am the Founder & CEO of Rohi Foundation. I live and work with the civil society in Bamenda, North West Region of Cameroon.
I hold a PhD in Theology and Intercultural Studies from the School of Intercultural Studies at the Faculty of Evangelical Theology, Yaoundé. I hold also a Master of Divinity, and Master of Theology. In addition, I hold a Master 1 in Law and First Degree in Law from the University of Yaoundé 2, Soa and a university attestation in Library and Information Management from the Protestant University of Central Africa, Yaoundé. I have also completed many professional trainings and internships in conflict resolution, humanitarian work, legal practice and human rights protection in both local and international organizations. I speak both English and French very well. I am also fluent in Pidgin and some of the Grassfields mother tongues.
Furthermore, I am having more than ten years of experience in the legal, humanitarian and human rights domains in the English speaking regions of Cameroon. I have administered both law chambers and NGOs in Cameroon which are working with the internally displaced people in Cameroon and refugees in the area of human rights protection and psycho-social assistance. As protection officer, I used to coordinate para-legal assistance to internally displaced people and refugees. I have led several actions to protect people forced to flee their homes, delivering life-saving assistance like shelter, food, water and legal advice to help safeguard fundamental human rights and ensuring safety and dignity.
Rohi Foundation: is a legalized grassroots organization in Cameroon. The organization was founded since 2007 by a group of dedicated and compassionate social workers with outstanding and longstanding experiences. The Foundation has executed projects in the areas of peace, human rights and humanitarian actions.
