ABOUT GAICAM

Founded with the purpose of transforming lives and promoting growth in Cameroon and Africa at large, we are a non-governmental, not-for-profit, and nonpolitical organization whose wide and realistic vision has reached, touched, and elevated the lives of over 33,000 Cameroonians, including those of other nationalities, since our inception in 2013.

We are working to end extreme poverty in Africa through capacity building, entrepreneurship, and innovation, helping communities develop the perfect recipe for sustainable success. We believe in the possibility of ending extreme poverty and building a sustainable future for all.

We work with the most vulnerable women, refugees, internally displaced people, and youth in vulnerable communities in Africa, equipping them to adapt to the shocks of conflicts, hash economic situations, displacements, pandemics, and climate change. We are committed to building resilience and alleviating poverty by igniting entrepreneurial spirit in Cameroon and across Africa.
