I am working to achieve the culture of Human Rights in Cameroon, as a CNHRO's National Coordinator. My work is then focused on the empowerment of HRDs, their organizations and the more vulnerable segment of the population: small farmers, women, youth and indigenous people.

By joining the community, I would like to learn more on how we can make it happen together, and share from our indoor experience.
