Entrepreneurship in Cameroon also receive a boost from us with our Wanyuri-parasol-distribution where more than 1000 small business owners benefitted from free parasols. This initiative sponsored by a private company to support the business of street vendors as they try to raise money under the hot scotching equatorial sun to manage their homes and feed their children.

2023 was a year full of so many natural disasters like what happened in Turkey, civil wars & international wars like what is happening in Gaza-Israel. Wanyuri did respond to a few nood-help situations in Cameroon. October of this year Wanyuri in partnership with the local Red-cross & city-council provided medical & material support to victims and families of the Mbankolo landslide disaster in Yaoundé Cameroon

We concluded the year in our normal spirit of giving. In December we ensured more than 800 people had warm-Christmas meals by our yearly donation of rice, oil and tomatoes sauce to families across villages in Bamenda. It might be of interest to mention that Bamenda still remains an unstable area due to the ongoing civil resistance in the city. Looking at all the above highlighted projects we executed at Wanyuri, it is safe to say that 2023 was a good year for us.

Als we kijken naar alle hierboven genoemde projecten die we bij Wanyuri hebben uitgevoerd, kunnen we gerust zeggen dat 2023 een goed jaar voor ons was.

Missie en impact van Wanyuri: Wanyuri’s missie van het bevorderen van zelfredzaamheid, onderwijs, toegang tot draagbaar water, ondernemerschap en landbouw heeft een significante impact gehad op het leven van de lokale bevolking van de gemeenschappen waar we projecten hebben uitgevoerd.

Succesverhalen en getuigenissen van deze projecten zijn goed gedocumenteerd op onze sociale media om te laten zien waarom we blijven doen wat we doen en hoe effectief onze projecten zijn

Challenges and Lessons Learned We did experience obstacles or challenges when executing our projects in Cameroon. Challenges mostly in price fluctuations and finding trust-worthy contractors and water-experts to work with. We are grateful for our team in Cameroon who put in the effort to solve these challenges and found us CROWN Engineering & Texcall Construction to execute our projects in a transparent and honest way. As we now reflect our greatest lessons learned via these experiences is not to trust everything contractors say, we have to do our own research and analysis before agreeing to anything, not just accept at face-value.

Governance and ComplianceAs we all know the laws and legislation keeps changing and we as a recognize NGO has to adhere and adapt to the changes.

Strategically for 2024 is an ambitious yearWe use the motto "Execute, deliver and impact" as we seek more sponsorships, grants and partnerships to implement programs and impact more lives. We plan to continue our collaboration with the Province of West Flanders through Wereldhuis, KBS & Wilde Ganzen.

We plan to increase networking & fundraising events with other local Belgian organizations and conduct awareness campaigns in Belgium through the 4th pillars. We plan to collaborate and establish partnerships with other local NPOs to organize awareness campaigns and intercultural events with Kiyodel VZW, Rino vzw, FMDO Kortrijk en KRAC Kortrijk.



Our goals is to show the world how our projects and events are helping to promote self-reliance in Cameroon, in addition to promoting education and access to portable water and education for all.

We zijn van plan om ons meer in te zetten voor de duurzame ontwikkelingsdoelen van de Verenigde Naties, in het bijzonder voor doelen # 5 gendergelijkheid, # 6 water en sanitaire voorzieningen # 4 kwaliteitsonderwijs en # 2 honger, die onze organisatie wil ondersteunen en bereiken in Kameroen.

Brainstorm session with other NGO's

Our ultimate hope this year is to pick a date when all Wanyuri Cameroon board members visit to coordinate with Wanyuri Cameroon board members and visit all 10 portable water-water systems that our organization has implemented in Cameroon.

Ons motto voor 2024 is “Uitvoeren, leveren en impact hebben”!!!
