Welcome to the Bafut Ecovillage Refugee Relief and Resettlement Centre
Follow us on our journey!
What We Do:
What to do with the homeless youth in refugee camps in prison and internally displaced in Cameroon now living in the forest.
Through the ecological restoration peace and reconciliation initiative we will undertake extensive research on policies that are agriculturally sound and promote sustainable development practices that favor such policies. Food security, economic growth and environmental peace and stability are the foundation of the policies we work to promote.
Smallholder farmers are the drivers of the Cameroon economy but unfortunately their potential is undermined. Most of these families rely solely on farming for their income but struggle to make a decent living due to low yields caused by inappropriate farming methods and unavailability to access such information. We use Permaculture the African way to reconnect youth to the land.
Information Communication/Community Hospitality
Generation and dissemination of knowledge and information on ecologically sound and useful innovations in human, animal, plant and environmental health
Research and Development

Educational and empowerment programs amongst youth women and small-holder communities in partnership with other players
Provision of grants and technical assistance to trainees and women groups working with rural communities in organic agriculture
Social Structures and Ecological Ethics:
Opennnes, Transparency and Connectedness
The basic matter of our programmes are made of ideas, vision of healing biotopes and information for the most central mental shift.To realise peace villages we have to know what peace is through reconnecting with our indigenous knowledge systems to learn the rules of trust solidarity and love. Cocreation with Tamera in this area and mutual support will lead us to the rediscovery of community from our African perspective and enhance the ability of our youth to rewrite our history, our lamguage and our tradition. The youth will be able to tell their own stories. The programmes based on the spirit of Ndanifor (see foot note) are geered building a sense of solidarity and belonging to encourage youth to care of each other and to relearn our values and our culture. All the programme activities will use the concept of the Living Biotope to bring healing to our traumatised youth and women.
