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. In 2022, CADA came up with an initiative title “Peace of Art”. In two six months intensive programs for 30 young people we provide practical and theoretical creative and entrepreneurial skills to school drop outs and drug addicts in our art school. We aim to use art as a means of transformation to show alternatives to drug abuse and crime.




Our Mission

To transform the mindsets of disadvantaged youths(drug addicts,school drop outs,homeless and the vulnerable) through life skill education,art training and social entrepreneurship skill development for their social,mental,psychological and economic development.

Our Vision

To build a zero substance use, abuse and crime society for our youths and for the betterment of humanity through arts, life skill education and social entrepreneurship skill development.
