Where We Work

Angels & Doves works closely with poor and rural communities in Africa. Although the African continent has abundant natural resources, it remains the world's poorest and most underdeveloped continent. The African continent presents a rare combination of exogenous handicaps such as infectious and deadly diseases, small economies, high level of illiteracy, corrupt government, and high dependency ratios. According to the United Nations' Human Development Report in 2003, the bottom 25 ranked nations (151st to 175th) were all African.


Poverty, malnutrition and inadequate water supply and sanitation, as well as poor health, affect a large proportion of the people who reside in the African continent. Therefore, Angels and Doves has dedicated its mission to work with African communities to help solve some of these issues.

Cameroon


Sources: World Bank, CIA World Factbook, and United Nations Children's Fund.
Cameroon is an African country located in West Africa with a population estimated at 20 millions. The literacy rate in Cameroon has dropped considerably over the years, as a result of a large number of the population being unable to afford to pay for school.


Poor sanitation, lack of drinking water and water for domestic purposes are major problems facing Cameroon today. A large number of the Cameroonian population, including those living in urban areas, lack access to good drinking water. There are also several obstacles that face the Cameroonian society, such as corruption and inequitable distribution of income, stagnant per capita income, and government bureaucracy.


The unemployment rate is between 40% and 50%, with about 50% to 55% of the total population living below the poverty line. In dollar figures, the majority of the Cameroonian population lives on less than $1.25 a day, making Cameroon one of the poorest countries in the world today.


Angels & Doves is working on two social fronts (education and health) in Cameroon to improve and better the lives of many Cameroonians.
