Hope for a better future (H4BF) is a registered Non-Profit Organization established by a group determined and committed young men and women with enhanced vision on humanitarian and community development. Our aim is to evolve policies, programs and strategies for the protection and empowerment of women, children and vulnerable people especially, persons with disabilities (PWDs) in Cameroon. H4BF has been an active partner and a strong advocate in the fields of Gender Equity, Good Governance, Child Protection, and Gender-Based Violence, Peace Building, and Environmental Protection.
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, and have tremendously scaled-up in recent times. Download 2020 annual report
H4BF’s mission is to provide humanitarian assistance in crisis situations including famine, disaster, natural disasters, armed conflicts and to contribute to sustainable development within communities in Cameroon in order to help people acquire their own autonomy.
The humanitarian needs in NWSW is greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) was first identified in Wuhan, China, in December 2019 and has spread all over the world.
With this outbreak of COVID 19, the existing gender inequalities and vulnerabilities and risks of abuse is increasing in Cameroon; women and girls may be at higher risk of intimate partner violence and other forms of domestic violence due to heightened tensions in the household and confinement.
We build the resilience of women and their families, improve gender equality, and support the development of women’s livelihoods through achieving two main objectives, 1) Increase financial access for vulnerable women, particularly in rural areas, and 2) improve quality of financial services, tailored to meet women’s needs.
As the crisis rocking the North West and the South West regions continue unabated, women continue to bear the brunt.

In everything we do, we strive for transparency, fairness and integrity and thus respect six fundamental principles:

H4BF has learnt from past projects that there is a need for deliberate targeting of women groups with armed forces, as they often do not take part in the formal release and reintegration process. women have specific requirements that need to be incorporated into programme planning to address their specific issues such as: (a) the difficulty of persuading fighting forces to release girls, (b) dealing with consequences of sexual and physical abuse, forced marriage, teenage pregnancy etc., (c) challenges in re-joining their families and communities due to stigmatization and rejection.
Our Implementing strategy ensure that the individual and different needs of girls, boys, and women are taken into consideration and addressed in the various components using a survivor centred and child centred approach.
