Our Mission

CCID aims to advance the rights of communities, women, girls and young people in Cameroon while strengthening community leaders and community based organizations to respond to the needs of indigenous people.

We work in the community cognizant of the fact that majority of indigenous people live below the poverty line in communities around Cameroon. We therefore work with communities to find ways to bring diverse groups together and leverage their abilities, interests, and resources in order to engender shared value and benefits.

We align ourselves with the objectives of funders—corporate, government, or multilateral—with the self-expressed needs of intended beneficiaries. We work persistently from the outset of interventions to connect with stakeholders in Cameroonian communities to get a reliable picture of the dynamics, challenges, and opportunities. We ensure local ownership of initiatives by working with communities to drive program design and implementation.
