In the Beginning…

  Better Breed Cameroon is over a year old now with several minor youth projects to its repertoire. But in the beginning, all there was to it was a young lady with a dream, a mentor who pushed her and a cash award which made the dream all the more possible.

  Have you ever thought about problems, vices and ills prevalent in our society? From AIDS to strikes, from corruption to unemployment… whatever the social issue, Cameroonians tend to blame it on those in power. They are corrupt, they embezzle, they give the jobs to relatives and friends, bypassing those who are qualified, they are bias in favor of certain tribes etc. It is always “they” and never “we”.

  Better Breed was founded on the premise that this blaming/grumbling cycle will get us nowhere. And fighting those in power is useless if we don’t have better people to replace them with.

  We need a new kind of Cameroonian. One who is not willing to give bribes to the police along the road, one who knows how many ministries there are in the country, one who isn’t after the “American Dream” but is willing to fantasize about something uniquely Cameroonian and make it a reality.

  We need a new breed. And so we’re going to rear just that. It is much easier to build a whole child than to fix a broken adult. So we are solving the problem from the roots. We are all about investing in the development and empowerment of the young people.
Give them the knowledge they need to stand up for what is right, help them fulfill themselves here so they need not seek it elsewhere. Encourage them to dream, empower them with the ability and confidence to pursue those dreams.

Join the movement. This is the beginning of a new breed. Better Breed Cameroon

About Better Breed Cameroon

Better Breed Cameroon is a Youth Association founded in January 2014 by Monique Kwachou on the perceived need for greater and better investment in Cameroonian youth; their development and empowerment. Better Better believes rather than criticizing those we have in power today and the currently practiced vices in our society, we ought to solve the problem from the roots by rearing a young generation which would do better as leaders and citizens when the time comes. To us the truest form of sustainable development is youth development. We are based in Buea, in the Southwest Region of Cameroon, from where we carry out our ideas and projects in youth development and empowerment.
