Better World Cameroon: an organization for social transition toward a sustainable Africa
Better World Cameroon was founded in 1996 in Yaounde, Cameroon. Since that time our NGO work has transitioned from the Ndanifor Community Garden Project in Yaoundé to Ndanifor Permaculture Ecovillage Demonstration Centre in Bafut which is inspiring climate adaptation in Cameroon, Africa and the international community.
We work on
- Developing local regenerative agricultural strategies
- Using Permaculture processes to enhance our Ecosystems .
- Designing a model African Ecovillage (Bafut Ecovillage Vision2020): intentional Community for youth entrepreneurship and women empowerment
- Promoting local government action that drives innovative development of resilient food and water systems and self-organization for cultural heritage restoration.
- Creating social businesses and Cooperatives to sustain our work .
The vision of a Bafut Ecovillage has inspired community partnerships and received international recognition. Our demonstration Center Ndanifor Permaculture Ecovillage is a learning centre in Bafut, offering facilities and hands-on learning test fields.
BetterCooperative is engaging with farmers to strengthen rural agriculture through High Value Agriculture Products and supporting local food sovereignty.
Our work is volunteer-based, supported by an active board of directors. We welcome both local and international volunteers.
The people of our organization are deeply committed to the development of opportunities for youth through sustainable endeavors based on Permaculture principles.
Relationships with Partners and Funders continue to expand our network worldwide through collaboration, knowledge exchange and funding.
