The African Centre for Community and Development strive at documenting histories/cultures and contemporary happenings, for education, problem solving, and data for reference to development actors. They seek this motive through the production of audiovisual documentaries, seminars and workshops, art and cultural festivals and short films, especially as readership remains quite minimal. They also hold that within the realms of their socio – economic dispensations such activities cannot succeed without networking and sponsorship.
African Centre for Community and Development seeks to better development management by collecting and analyzing data useful in the design and implementation of projects and programmes for development, Foreign Direct Investments, processes and holistic approaches to sustainable development in Cameroon, Africa and the world.
They offer strategic advice for business and interventions aimed at curbing poverty, sustaining the environment, sustainable livelihoods, fighting climate change, diseases, introducing Green Technologies in developing countries, empowerment of women, promoting Good Governance and democracy, human rights and human equality, empowering small and medium size organizations and general capacities in Cameroon, Africa and the world. The organization also engages in communication for development and helps in facilitating the embedding of ICTs in the region.
The organization engages in agriculture including agroecology and poultry farming and is interested to collaborate with investors willing to venture into these fields.
The centre hold that man is not beast and in his humanity can strive to over come the short falls of life through sustainable development. Sustainable development being an incidence of research and development, transparency in governance and management of natural resources and peoples, gender equality, democracy and guarantees of human rights.
Global sustainable development, must also strive at empowering poor people and fighting all those aspects that affect their transition into development such as diseases (HIV/AIDS, Malaria, Malnutrition etc), poor political systems that hinder political modernization as well education, which is essential in any such development agenda (Apter D.E. 1965).
Since man is equal, society must not be stratified. We therefore stand to ensure, gender equality in our society and a world, seriously affected by some times pre-historical limitations, which have left in most cases women void of respect, dignity, development and the zeal to progress. We also hold that in certain models of gender roles however, as stipulated in some progressive cultures, we will strive at preserving and educating scholarship on the confusion between these roles as marginalization as well, hence the reason for African studies as the back bone for identifying and solving inter cultural conflicts.
With the environment threatened by urbanization, wild fires, climate change, religious wars etc, it is virtually impossible to run an association like ours, without a focus on the conservation of nature. Man therefore must be equal in a society, which must have education, structural development, health and a well kept environment to progress in trade, communication and the physical and mental empowerment of man.
Therefore we strive at documenting histories/cultures and contemporary happenings, for education, problem solving, and data for reference to development actors. We seek this motive through the production of audiovisual documentaries, seminars and workshops, art and cultural festivals and short films, especially as readership remains quite minimal. We also hold that within the realms of our socio – economic dispensations such activities cannot succeed without networking and sponsorship. We therefore expect within the realms of our visions for global partnership, sponsoring institutions especially in the areas of communication, audiovisual documentation, African studies, intercultural dialogue, environment, eco-tourism, agriculture and arts. This goal is paramount especially as we network with local community and commercial radios.
The centre also strive at preserving our journal, the Global partnership Tower, and hold that any such province of communication can only be well exploited by contributions from donor development actors, entries from other expert organizations, publicity and distribution. We shall delight therefore in any such actions that will facilitate our vision to spread knowledge and to bring sustainable development to all, irrespective of region, race, colour or religion.
