H4BF CAMEROON (Hope For A Better Future) is a Non-Governmental Organization constituted by professionals since January 2009 and legalized in 2014 under the Cameroon authorization number NW/IP/SCOOPS/001/14/232 to meet up with the developmental challenges facing the Rural Communities in Cameroon, with commitment and professional inputs backed by professional knowledge of the development dynamics of the contemporary Cameroon.
In its first 3 years of its existence, H4BF CAMEROON did not only succeed in putting up significant work in various areas of development, but built up models for such activity for replication, as well as has tremendously scaled-up in recent times.
Our mission is to create more opportunities for inclusive growth and poverty reduction so as to enhance sustainable development initiatives within communities in Cameroon.
Our vision has been the same since the beginning- to be a dynamic unit with a passionate commitment to delivering value-added and innovative solutions to community challenges. We envision a community where everyone remains focused on building long lasting sustainable development initiatives and giving vulnerable and underprivileged groups and equal opportunity to develop capacities for self-reliance.
Let's create more opportunities for inclusive growth and poverty reduction so as to enhance sustainable development initiatives within communities in Cameroon.
Poverty and access to education are inextricably linked, mostly because that can be an avenue out of poverty. Our school building projects are effectively lifting children and their families out of extreme poverty.SDG 1
For people to lead healthy and productive lives, they need access to affordable and good healthcare and the knowledge to maintain good health. We refurbish and re-equip rural healthcare centres, ensuring that all family members are able to stay well enough to allow the children to attend school, rather than having to work in the fields.SDG 3
Access to quality education is a key factor in empowering children to become active participants in transforming their societies. It is the key to better jobs and hope for the future.SDG 4
Investing in girls’ and women’s education is one of the most effective ways to achieve positive, sustainable change in the world, for everyone. Our projects have enabled hundreds more girls to attend school and go on to further education. Some married women have returned to school while others are being educated through membership of women’s groups.SDG 5
Access to clean water and sanitation have a huge impact on the quality of life particularly in the rural areas. We aim to provide clean drinking water at all of our schools and also fund some community water facilities.SDG 6
The economic benefit of education is unquestionable – all over the world, education is seen as an investment, for the individual as well as for society. Our projects offer a bright future both for the children and for Cameroon.SDG 8
Equitable access to education leads to greater positive impact on society as a whole. Our projects have significantly reduced the maternal mortality and infant mortality rates in the benefitting communities, improved access to education for children and trade training for adolescents with disabilities and they have helped lift whole families out of extreme poverty.SDG 10
H4BF CAMEROON has a significant experience of working within the 10 regions of Cameroon. These activities have been in various areas that include; children rights and education, health and HIV/ AIDs, livelihoods and micro finance, natural resource management, Disaster risk reduction and climatic change management.
H4BF is run by a group of young, agile, versatile and enthusiastic young Cameroonians with a 6-man board of directors who are responsible for overseeing and supervising the activities of the organisation. There is the executive director who heads the organisation and directs and coordinates her activities and then the programs coordinator who is responsible for managing all project/program activities including all project constraints such as cost, schedule, risk, human resources, quality, procurements and stakeholders. Each program within the organigram has a sub-program coordinator who reports directly to the Programs Manager and then field workers who coordinate field activities. There is a financial secretary who handles all organisation funds, disbursements and payments. We also have volunteers and interns who are distributed across the various projects and activities of the organisation depending on their stipulated internship objectives.
We believe in peoples’ participatory approach in all stages of our development initiatives. Our strategy is to adopt rural development planning and action programme through study-cum-survey with the active peoples’ participatory approach.
Empowering the most marginalized groups like trafficked children & women, single & destitute women, children in difficult circumstances, Rehabilitation of Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) and other vulnerable groups like those infected and/or affected by HIV/AIDS, relief operations during floods are also some of the other interventions carried out by H4BF CAMEROON in both urban and rural settings in its operational areas.
Volunteers play key roles towards the success of H4BF. Our Volunteering programs offers various opportunities for individual to commit their expertise, time, energy and skills to make a change in the life of deserving girls taking various roles in the activities of the organisation.
