Better World Cameroon, founded in 1996 is an entrepreneurship platform for momentum on raising awareness to move youth and women in Cameroon from commitment to action. Our aim is to build the capacity of underemployed youth and women stakeholders through ecological agriculture and community dialogue on climate change. We sensitize and educate local populations on Permaculture best practices the African way. By encouraging youth leadership in collaboration on food sovereignty and job creation, we aim to achieve the 2020 sustainable development goals in Cameroon.
