Africa Agenda has also spearheaded initiatives to expand democracy and development. For example, we conceived and launched a signature freedom and information act project, Cameroon Information and Education Day(CIED) in 2009. To date, the CIED has printed and distributed thousands of free pocket-size copies of the revised Cameroon Constitution. The booklets include the hard-to-find April 2008 constitutional amendments made by the Cameroon administration.
While Africa Agenda is small we are very much an established and important resource to the Denver metro area. We know we have barely begun to strengthen understanding and building real bridges to Africa. Please consider helping us out by donating or volunteering! Read more…
