What we do

We use our voices and actions to influence socio economic justice that will bring an end to poverty amongst socially disintegrated and economically disadvantaged residents within undeserved rural communities.

Where we work?

Currently our focus area of jurisdiction covers mainly the rural communities of the North West Region of Cameroon. The population of the region is young, with over 62% of its residents being less than 20 years old weighing the dependency rate in the region sky  high, particularly in the rural areas. This  region has unique attractions, including the second highest mountain in West Africa. It is home to many rare birds such as the distinctive red crested Bannerman's turaco, which is unique to this region. 

There are also many crater lakes such as Lake Oku, Lake Awing, and Lake Nyos. The largest remaining mountain forest in the Northwest Region is the Kilum-Ijim Forest. Menchum Falls, and Abbi Falls in the Mbengwi Division, are also located here. This region is a safe and peaceful environment for visitors.  The region has a couple of principal public hospitals such as The Bamenda Regional Hospital, The Shisong hospital as well as other private and mission hospitals that helps to resolve its health needs. It is found in the western highlands of Cameroon. It is bordered to the southwest by the Southwest Region, to the south by the West Region, to the east by the Adamawa Region, and to the north by the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Social Impact

As a progressive force responding to socio economic injustice, SEREG collaborates with other groups and volunteers, engage with the media, and communicate about the disadvantages within undeserved communities of the North West Region. Through our advocacy we help bring about sustainable responses to development challenges by promoting access to environmental literacy, entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and work readiness so that the great majority of rural inhabitants will have the knowledge to practice environmental friendly activities and the employment by which to meet their needs entirely by their own efforts.

SEREG is currently running a 1.5 hectare organic demonstration garden in the community of Nforya and a poultry farm in the community of Nkwen for youth training and empowerment in the agribusiness sector. We organize sports activities with the aim of sharing environmental conservation and climate change education. We have also succeeded in mobilizing 500 youth in 3 communities to plant trees for the green forest conservation project.
