Why join GWC in Cameroon

Cameroon is aptly called as “Africa in miniature” for its parched stretch in the North through its grasslands across its center and to the intense rain forest in the South. Despite surrounded with some of the most politically problematic countries Cameroon is a dream destination for any one in quest of beauty and diversity. Cameroon boasts of a geological and cultural diversity. Home to over 200 different ethnic and linguistic groups, the country is one of the most culturally diverse nations on the continent, its people include ancient tribal kingdoms, Muslim pastoralists and forest-dwelling pygmies. Cameroon is also popular for its mesmerizing shrines and temples that bring back the essence of a prosperous ancient heritage. For the fun lovers, Cameroon is well known for its local styles of music, mainly makossa and bikutsi, and for its successful national football team – the unconquerable Lions.

While you are in Cameroon you can get involved in a host of activities like Hiking, Rock Climbing, Wildlife watching, Explore Bénoué National Park, Bouba Ndjidah National Park, Waza National Park and Korup National Park, Climbing Mount Cameroon, Interact with Cameroon’s forest natives, Visit the culture rich town of Foumban, Explore the village of Rhumsiki, Kalamaloué Reserve and celebrate local festivals.

Despite the wealth of natural beauty it is bestowed with, Poverty impairs much of Cameroon’s infrastructure. Terrific border clash with Cameroon’s powerful neighbor Nigeria indicate relations are somewhat ill at ease. The areas bordering Chad and the Central African Republic (CAR) are also unsound. Some of the major issues faced by the Government to tackle with include Crime, Crippled Medical facilities, Food and Water Scarcity, HIV/Aids, Hunger, Unemployment, Life threatening diseases and corruption.

Keeping above needs of the poor and needy people of Cameroon in mind GWC have developed some very learning and work oriented projects for the volunteers looking forward to have a fun filled activity yet with a bent of charity. Different teams are formed comprising of individuals coming from different ethnic, religious and socio – economic background to make it a lifetime experience. GWC believes in teaming up with young volunteers to bring in a positive change in the lives of these needy people. At the end of each project GWC will arrange trips to some of the top attractions of the country. Remember one step made by you will take the needy to smiles and light of happiness. Together we can bring in the change that we want to see and make this world a better place to live!
