Overview of the project

The Eco-citizen Network Project : A year, a planted tree, to give back to nature what it gives to us.

The AFESAF (organisation specialised in helping women and national solidarity actions) is engaged with the Cameroonian government in reducing poverty and improving the population’s living conditions. The projects focus mainly on women and youth. In line with Cameroon’s development priorities, the AFESAF works and intervenes especially in two sectors: the rural sector and national solidarity.

Gender, environment, sustainability and vulnerability are all aspects systematically integrated within this approach.
