Offer: Join the Cameroon Vision Trust in Celebrating her 10 Birthday

Dear Friends,

Have you ever visiting the Republic of Cameroon. In many of my travels when I say I come from Cameroon there is always the next question where is Cameroon. Well Cameroon is situated in the West, Central region of the continent of Africa near Nigeria.
The Cameroon Vision Trust is a Cameroon based Non Governmental Organisation (NGO). She was born on the 27th of November 1998 from a need to promote sustainable development across the country. Cameroon is one of Africa's best secret and is also called Africa in miniature meaning instead of visiting the huge continent of Africa, a visit to Cameroon would give you a great deal about the vegetation,people and climate.

So you are allinvitied to join us in the beautiful African county of Cameroon to celebrate Cameroon Vision Trust 10 years in operation.

You are all Welcome.

In the Celebaration we shall be converting a small Cameroonian Farming village into an Eco Village. Ekona is a village at the foot of Mount Cameroon in South West Province Cameroon. It has a population of about 17,000 inhabitants. The main income generation project is farming. The people grow both food and cash crops such as cocoa, coffee, bananas.
There are two research centres. The Centre for Agronomic Research and the Centre for Geologic Research. Hence through this project we hope to create a centre for Ecological Research. The village is also very close to the main cities of Douala the Economic capital of Cameroon. Buea the Provincial Capital for the South West Province and former capltial for the German Colonial rule and the British Cameroon

Hi Rosemary, I hope you are

Hi Rosemary,

I hope you are still involved with WorldPulse! Is this eco-village still in operation? I am curious to learn more about this. One of my friends moved to Cameroon last year and I am eager to learn more about the country.
