Description:

The Republic of Cameroon is blessed with a wealth of natural resources, rich in geological diversity and possesses one of Africa’s most literate populations. Its beautiful beaches, deserts and rainforests, savannas and mountains not only make it extremely unique, but provide a natural platform to propel it into one of Africa’s greatest touristic attraction.

Despite having one of the highest Gross Domestic Product in sub-Saharan Africa, our country continues to perform poorly on all social and economic fronts: underdeveloped agricultural opportunities, inept economic and infrastructural development, absence of a true democracy, the lack of basic social welfare and human rights, and wanting in healthcare resources and delivery. As Cameroons’ neighbors make significant progress in these areas, it is now increasingly evident that immediate action is necessary to address this situation. Despite:

  • the linguistic, ethnic and cultural diversity of the Cameroonian people,
  • the spatial distances that impede the physical meetings of likeminded persons,
  • the absence of an independently structured media forum to highlight the plight in our communities and country,

we, Cameroonians, have united in the creation of the Cameroon Professional Society.

We do recognize that every Cameroonian has the ability to positively change our communities and as Cameroonian professionals we are especially enlightened, capable and adequately resourced to influence these changes both in the diaspora and in our motherland. As a people, we have been involved in academic training on effective communication and have gained exposure working in diverse teams to achieve a common goal.

Our goal is to nurture a robust network of Cameroonian professionals from all segments of the society to share ideas, elevate and empower each other as well as nurture a new generation of effective leaders.

We will leverage Cameroonian professionals and highlight the social changes in our communities, the deteriorating state of Cameroons’ economic, social and infrastructural status and aggressively seek the implementation of progressive policies to effect positive change.

In doing so, the Cameroon Professional Society (CPS) uphold the foregoing as founding principles and resolutions.
