About our organization
Why we help
Our current world has some outstanding peculiarities: rapid population growth that is making a steady rise towards 8 billion, technological advancement, globalization and its adverse impact on marginal communities, changing consumption patterns, inequality, heightening of the poverty gap, disease outbreak, insecurity and inter alia, anthropogenic forcing on climate change
ACRID seeks to offer vital links between stronger institutions and grass root population in a synergistic manner and to realise this, set goals, objectives, mission and vision have been conceived.
ACRID is a research and development based non-profit organization created in 2005. With its head quarter in Cameroon, plans are underway to expand to other countries in Africa, notably in areas where endemic poverty is common. We invite you to join us in changing the lives of people who have been rendered poor by some precarious environmental, social, economic and political forces surrounding them.
Our activities lie on the following platforms: research and development, climate change mitigation, management of forest and water resources, food production, education and sensitization, women empowerment and health. We therefore seek to take the lead in meeting the needs of the needy.
