Current state of projects in Cameroon

In the world today, there are more than 65 million people displaced from their homes. The political conflict in Cameroon’s two anglophone regions is beginning to add to this number, and although we hope the situation will quickly be resolved, ICA is determined to adapt our activities according to the needs of the people.

The displacement of some families in the current project area and Lebialem Division in general makes it difficult to work as planned for the coming school year. However, as a temporary measure we are continuing with our school building projects in the West Region where many of the displaced children are currently attending school.

Our Cameroonian partner organization (Centre for International Cooperation) is giving us regular updates, and we are adapting as fast as we can; but we need your help to provide support! Check out our programs page for more information on the work we are doing in Cameroon today!

    Ashia is a Cameroonian word that roughly translates to ‘I support you in your worthwhile endeavor’ and is often called out to those working in fields, climbing Mt Cameroon, carrying heavy burdens, etc.  The word is meant to convey support and admiration and to give courage, which is why it was chosen as the name of ICA’s main fundraising campaign.
