Collective Arts Development Association(CADA)


As a result of the crisis in the Northwest and Southwest regions of Cameroon that has led to the burning down of schools and villages, the youths feel the have no future. Above 800,000 youths have been deprived of formal education, teachers and students kidnapped.The adverse effect is the rise of youth involvement in substance use, abuse, crime and violence  in these regions. CADA came up with an initiative title “Peace of Art”. Through which we use arts-based participatory approaches and active youth involvement for substance use, abuse, crime and violence prevention in our communities.
