OUR STORY

We are a non-profit organization based in the Kadey Division (East Region) of Cameroon since 2017. We operate in more than 20 communities around the division, including Batouri, the divisional capital.

PADK has one main vision. Every community has numerous assets and skills, which are sufficient to start and sustain a long term development of the community. It is therefore important to bring the communities to identify and use those assets. Therefore we think that the community development initiative should come from the inhabitants and the external partners should be just in assistance.

OUR MAIN OBJECTIVES

To help us cover our objectives, we use the Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) approach, which encourages the use of the every community’s assets to start and promote a long term development from the inside-out.

1

Reduce the poverty in the communities of the Kadey Division

2

Reduce the dependence of the population on external help

3

Reinforce the capacities of the people to promote a long term development based on the local community assets

OUR PROJECTS

After two years in the Kadey villages, we were able to study around 20 communities, divided in four subdivisions (Ndélélé, Batouri, Kétté, and Kentzou). We observed the same conclusion: all of the villages have many assets, but strangely, the standard of life of the inhabitants is getting less and less acceptable for the 10 past years. Therefore, the level of poverty is becoming dangerously high.

All OUR PROJECTS

OUR MISSION, VISION & APPROACH

To work with the residents of the Kadey to promote improved self sufficiency and health and well-being in the region.

Every community has numerous assets and skills, those assets are sufficient to start and sustain a long term development of those communities. It is therefore important to bring the communities to identify and use those assets. We think that, the community development initiative should come from the inhabitants and the external partners should be just in assistance.

Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) is a powerful and proven approach that helps nonprofit and governmental leaders and community residents unleash the latent potential of the often underutilized assets in our community. It’s an approach that promotes development driven by the community rather than by outside agencies. It emphasizes the community’s existing physical assets and residents’ interests rather than simply constructing buildings and fixing problems.

How can you help?

We thank you very much to be interested to our Organization.

We are deeply motivated to work for the reinforcement of the local community’s capacities and considerably reduce poverty in the long term. However, we don’t have sufficient resources to cover all the charges of our action. Every external assistance: financial, material, training, relationship will be welcome and appreciated.

As we sincerely think, even the smallest help could be the one thing we were waiting for to make the action a very powerful success.

If you have had the intention to help poor communities and you didn’t want to create an NGO, here is one opportunity for you to directly aid the local communities of Kadey Subdivision. Because our workers are already funded, all of the money you give goes 100% to the community projects,

If you would like to help us in our action, we thank you a lot.

In this effect, to assist us, you could:

  • Make a donation in destination of our organization
  • Make a donation in destination of the communities where we work
  • Become a PADK partner and in this fact help us directly in the communities
  • Invite us in the training workshop to empowered our team and make us more able to aid
  • Link us with one grantor or with any useful contact.

Let’s build a better community together.
