Mission and objectives

CAMAAY is a non-political, non-religious, non-profit association. CAMAAY envisions a society wherein every individual has the opportunity to grow and contribute to the socioeconomic development of the community. We endeavour to achieve our goals through activities that promote sustainable community development in Cameroon. These activities involve strong participation from local community members with the guidance and valuable assistance of CAMAAY and its volunteers. We, the members of the members of Cameroon Association of Active Youths (CAMAAY), a non-profit association, commit ourselves to work in the interest of humanity without distinction as to race, sex or religious background with due respect to the law. We pledge to work closely with other associations, foreign representatives/institutions, NGOs and the Cameroon Government in promoting the principles and practices of quality agriculture, education, healthcare, sports, social well-being and environmental protection. We agree to join forces in the attainment of the United Nations objective in making the world a better place in which to live, with sufficient food and conducive environments. We therefore commit ourselves to achieving our objectives through our activities and the implementation of policies consistent with our objectives. We agree to work with respect to the laws governing the functioning of associations. We believe that: 1) Agriculture is the backbone of our economy. 2) Agriculture is top among our efforts in the fight against poverty, which is a global challenge 3) 80% of our people still live in rural areas and solely depend on agriculture for survival. 4) Our environment is and will remain the only natural habitation for humanity and if care is not taken mankind will be eliminated from his environment. 5) Health is the basic requirement for a productive and progressive community and can only be achieved through what people eat, the environment in which they live and mental well-being. 6) T


An increasingly violent context in Cameroon, exacerbated by external forces such as ISIS and Boko Haram, as well as the internal political crisis since 2016, has contributed to almost a million internally displaced people in Cameroon (IDMC, 2019) (resource from your CAMAAY Information Hub proposal - 22 page PDF. UN DESA (another reference from that proposal) cites almost 1.5 million persons of concern to the UNHCR from Cameroon in 2020, including 97,000 refugees and asylum seekers. With increasing migrations to the Global North, for many of the same reasons already mentioned, stricter regulations on migration laws have made illegal migration the only evident option for vast numbers of youth seeking a safe and prosperous future. Considering the current widespread accessibility of social media all over the globe, most youth are well aware of the dangerous risks of illegal migration, and are not oblivious of the often fatal consequences. Yet the narrative of easy prosperity in the Global North persists, and thousands continue to attempt illegal migration at all costs. How well-informed are these prospective migrants on the probability of the risks? How realistic are their ideas of the logistics of migration, and how accurate are their expectations of the life that awaits them as asylum seekers?
