Improving on the livelihood of the less privileged youths, women and children through socio-economic empowerment beyond capacity building.

Who We Are:

FAPS-DEV is a young non-profit, apolitical, non-governmental organization which has been created out of the conviction that for poverty and unemployment to be eradicated, the most effective way is to teach  people how to fish, and not solely to give them fish.     

A group of young individuals therefore came together to brainstorm on ways of pooling their resources, skills, expertise and networks to enable sustainable development and well-being in their personal lives as well as in the communities, especially at the grassroots. 

This initiative was eventually given legal recognition via Prefectorial Decision No. 162/G.37/D14./VOL…/SAAJP of 28th March 2017.The Head Office of the association is in Buea, South West Region of Cameroon.
