So Better Breed Cameroon was founded in January 2013 as a non-profit youth development focused association with “Breeding the change we need” as its motto. At inception, the association members were a mixture of University of Buea alum and students. The members generally believed that the best way to address the plethora of Cameroon’s problems and ensure a better Cameroon in future would be focusing on our youth. So, rather than simply criticizing the poor governance we suffer today, we ought to ensure tomorrow is better by raising a more conscious, civic-minded, better capable, and skilled Cameroonian youth population which would be ready to serve and lead when the time comes. The association which is officially registered with the office of the Senior Divisional Officer of Fako Division as No.072/G.37/D14/Vol II/SAAJP, operates from its seat in Buea. Till date, the association is run solely on the efforts and contributions of young Cameroonians who regularly contribute fractions of their income, time and ideas considering all this their “tithe to society”.

The association holds projects quarterly (that is 4 main projects a year) with funds contributed by members and patrons (so far all Cameroonian) and in partnership with other regional NGO’s, companies etc.

To date, over a thousand young people have benefitted from a variety of Better Breed Cameroon’s projects ranging from mentoring projects, reading clubs, career counselling programs, web empowerment workshops, annual youth essay contests, bursaries and more.

To make the association more sustainable, Better Breed Cameroon will soon be launching Memorabilia a gift/souvenir shop which would sell products not for profit, but as a means of fundraising for Better Breed Cameroon’s projects. Thus epitomizing the practice of social enterprise. Read more about Memorabilia here.
