They were selected based on our extraordinary economic and social contributions in Germany and in their respective countries of origin. For him, it is Cameroon.

March It became concrete.
Akuma talked to his flat mate Johannes Dörfner in Freising, Germany about his intentions of helping the poorest of poor by means of creating a humanitarian organisation. Johannes was happy about the idea and expressed his unlimited support for it.
 
   
1989  
August The idea
 
   
When Akuma Saningong was 11 years old, he had to live primary school to secondary school. He was heart-broken and forlorn because many of his classmates could not take this step. Their parents or guardians had no money to afford school fees for such an education. Stricken by this experience amongst others, the wish and desire grew in him to help disadvantaged and underprivileged young persons.

Accountability

Accountability - Our Word is our Honour

Kamerun4AfrikaClub e. V. with the acronym KAC e. V., is a membership-based not-for-profit organisation which observes a formal system of accountability.

The organisation is committed to meeting best practice standards in operational excellence, confidentiality, public reporting and transparency.

It seeks to comply fully, for example, with public standards for financial reporting and with the International Non-Governmental Organizations’ (INGO) Accountability Charter.

However, it works for and with individuals who live below the poverty margin. These people are mostly children and young adults whom we have termed as the poorest of the poor. They are the heartbeat of our mission and vision and so it is to them that we owe our deepest accountability.

Methodologies such as impact assessment and stakeholders’ analysis enable us to ensure that KAC e. V. is delivering real, sustainable and positive change for those people for whom we work.
