Improve the living standards of the rural poor through the development and adoption of sustainable and appropriate technologies practices and diversification in rural agriculture. We encourage empowerment through knowledge by developing literacy and educational programs within our organisational structure and in partnership with other non governmental and governmental organisations.
Integrated Rural Community Center for Agriculture is community based Non governmental organisation in Cameroon working with the rural and mainly agricultural poor to try to improve the quality of life of these people. Knowing fully well that these rural communities are typically agricultural communities we try to assist them to improve farm yield much needed to feed families and raise incomes for other household chores.
Besides this, we also engage them in non agricultural activities deemed neccessary to improve their living standards and make life worthy of living in rural communities.
Our organization, established in the first instance to act as an information hub to both maintain and enhance the existing agricultural knowledge pool, also intends to exploit collective bargaining power by establishing co-operative sourcing of supplies and produce. We also create value for small farmers through innovation in sustainable agriculture and the activation of value chains.
A grass roots initiative our core values and operations are all independent of external advisers or sponsors. Whilst we need and want these people to help us progress we are in an enviable position where our self creation and independence permits us to economically exploit sponsors and advisers and to integrate often highly specialized professionals easily into our structure.
As the umbrella of both young and old people in Cameroon, IRCCA is the perennial network of the rural poor the world over encouraging common thinking and understanding on.

I have seen the wonderful work this organisation is doing and I believe that they can do more and better if they have the opportunity.
I therefore recommend this to anyone who would love to work with underprivileged communities in the developing world.
Please, share your experiences with the people who need you.
