Mission Statement

RUDEC Cameroon's mission is to actively seek resources, volunteers and methods to effectively employ these in the community development programs and towards the employment of the underpriviledged residents


The Rural Development Centre (RUDEC) started, as a concept, in the South West Regionof Cameroonin 2001. But it wasn’t until 2005 that RUDEC became a reality in the Boyo Division ofthe Anglophone North West Region. It was subsequently registered in February 2006 as a Common Initiative Group (CIG) with the Government of Cameroon. In December 2011 RUDEC was upgraded and registered as an Association with the Government as a not for profit organization with a wider operational area which enables them to be able to have branches all over the country. The idea for RUDEC first came about as a means to create opportunities for the underprivileged sections of society. The founders realized that by focusing on the needs of rural people, a centre such as RUDEC could empower and benefit local communities.

RUDEC encourages foreign volunteers to come and work together with local staff and members of the community, to try and help achieve their aims and to work towards the vision of the organisation.

To research and implement viable and sustainable projects aimed at promoting self help and encouraging the transfer of skills

To welcome international volunteers, expose them to Cameroonian culture, whilst exchanging knowledge, skill, utilising their time and expertise to help us in our mission

To offer support to the orphaned children living within their extended families to enable them them to continue in education and have access to health care.

To be a highly and respected, transparent, effective and sustainable organisation
