We are Nfomi Laura Berka and Etumboh Nguh Cyril, Co-Executive Directors of Community Centre for Integrated Development (CCID). Welcome to our website! We are happy that you are taking the time to learn about our organization’s work.
The very existence of an organization like ours depends on volunteers. If you would like to join us or are interested in learning more about what we do, do not hesitate to contact us. We welcome those who want to join us in our mission as we continue to work toward our community development goals.
Before going further, we want to express our gratitude to the members of our board, the members of this organization, and all of the support volunteers and consultants whom we have worked with in developing this organization. Your contributions and unique perspectives have strengthened CCID and have led us to where we are today.
At CCID, we aim to empower individuals and communities to uplift women, young people—especially girls—and the wider community to be leaders for positive change. We are an organization made up of community development experts who recognize that in order to create a sustainable world, we must harness the potential of communities. We strongly believe that women and young people in Cameroonian communities are central assets whose full potential remains untapped. We are also cognizant of the fact that the majority of indigenous people in communities across Cameroon live under the poverty line and work with community-based organizations to meet their needs.
We work with communities to bring diverse groups together and leverage their abilities, interests, and resources in order to engender shared values and benefits. We ensure local ownership of initiatives by working with communities to drive program design and implementation. We highly value the importance of developing a comprehensive understanding of the social, cultural, political, and economic dynamics in the communities where we implement our programs and interventions.
