CANU Cameroon is looking for volunteers to oversee and manage the Orphans and Vulnerable children project. CANU Cameroon currently provides for 60 orphans and vulnerable children. However, we have more than 500 applications but due to limited resources we are unable to add more children. Volunteers ought to have plans to enhance sponsorship of the programme and also to encourage further sponsors and to increase fund raising.Volunteer will be required to live and work in Bafut NW Region, Cameroon for any length of time as a contribution to bettering the lives of these children.

2. Volunteer opportunity for Nurses and health personnels.

Volunteers will help in creating awareness on HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) amongst youths. They will provide educational resources about the consequences of HIV/AIDS and STIs and information on how to avoid contracting them. The aim of the program is to empower children and young people to make informed choices concerning their sexual health. The methods that can be used for the campaign will vary depending on the resorces available and the group concerned.

Mission Statement

Building a world that holds a future for ALL humanity at all ages.


CANU Association Cameroon- a nonpolitical, non-religious inclined and not for profit association- started in 2008 in Bafut North West Region Cameroon, as an assistance group to the ageing. Its sole objective was to assist the ageing with medical help, nutrition and provision of basic needs. Not long after, there was need to carter for the increasing number of underprivileged children especially orphans and street children. The group then decided not to limit its assistance only to the ageing but also to include the vulnerable children-those who needed assistance. Since then, the group has been working with a number of widows and children (mostly orphans and marginalized children) including those that have physical disabilities. In the light of its activities, this group of benevolent young men and women attracted the attention of others who shared the goals and mission of the group. It was at this juncture that it was decided that an association be created to take "Care of the Ageing, Needy and the Underprivileged" persons in rural communities in the country. "CANU" was then created on the 27th April 2013 and it operates with Authorization No: 1220/2013/RDA/C19/SAAJP of 17th December 2013.
