We promote citizen's participation in democratic governance in Cameroon by enabling women/girls and youths to take part in elections, as well as demand political accountability from their local leaders on their campaign promises.

Sensitization campaign Students cued up for HIV testing
Our team is determined to make the zero new infection target a reality. Our strategy is; learn how to prevent HIV/AIDS, care for and treat infected friends/relatives without stigmatizing them, spread the message to your peers and get tested to know your own status. If it happens, please know that being HIV+ is not a dead sentence.

Sport for every girl and woman in Cameroon
For many years, sport has been one of the most important socio-cultural learning experiences for boys and men. These
benefits should be afforded our women and girls too. There are many advantages for girls and women to get involved in sport:
Girls who do sports have stronger immune systems and run a reduced risk of chronic illnesses later in life
such as; high blood pressure, diabetes, endometrial, colon and breast cancers, as well as heart diseases.
Girls involved in sporting activities have lighter and more regular periods and experience less cramping and discomfort during their
menses. Physical activity and sport can boost the mental, psychological and spiritual health of rural girls and women.
Girls and women who are involved in sporting activities have a more positive body image and experience
higher states of psychological well-being than girls and women who do not get involved in sporting activities.
