Monday 5th of March 2018: Presentation of the Study Report on Assessing Youth Driven Social Accountability Indicators within the 2030 AGENDA Landscape
“The Cameroon Youths and Students Forum for Peace (CAMYOSFOP) is an NGO founded on non – partisan and non – profit making. It came into existence as a result of the decaying nature of our moral and traditional values. Its mission is working towards the restoration of these values from the base i.e. formally and informally. This education is based on ethics and sound values and integrity of: youth development, human rights and conflict resolution as prerequisite to a culture of peace”.
