We are a national, non-profit, non-governmental, youth-led organization created in 2002 by a group of young people who migrated from remote communities across Cameroon into Yaoundé. With the burning aspiration to respond to some of the growing challenges facing young people, they decided to organize into a Local Youth Corner where they met monthly within church premises and other locations for meetings to reflect on how to solve problems within their communities like crime, poverty, unemployment, and others. With little or no resources, they engaged in community development initiatives.
