Protection plays a critical role in addressing human rights violations and responding to the challenges that often leaves citizens and residents structurally disempowered.

MDDT ensures that the rule of law is respected through advocacy and legal protective measures;
MDDT constitutes a legal team of lawyers in charge of the implementation of its protection program.

Joined July 2018
Interests: Citizenship, Criminal Justice, Economic Empowerment, Generalist Legal Services, Governance, Peace-building
I have worked with the civil society and public organizations engaged in human rights and peacebuilding. In this light, I served as a Protection Officer in the National Human Rights Commission in Cameroon and as a Monitoring and Evaluation Officer in the European Union Civil Society Strengthening program in Cameroon. I worked as a Program Coordinator for Peace and Conflict in the Pan African Institute for Development West Africa.
As the acting Secretary General of MDDT, I actively search for public, private and global partners relevant in the pursuit of our mission. I am involved in the design and development of our programs which cut across human rights, access to justice and peacebuilding. I am an ardent believer of global justice and look forward to amplify the voices of those who promote justice through a rights based approach. The protection of vulnerable categories represents a key motivation for joining this network so I can benefit from best practice exchanges.
Lambang Fonye Christian is the network champion (main point of contact) for Movement for Democracy, Development and Transparency.
