ident.africa was founded on the 22nd July 2004 by Mr. Fred-Eric Essam and his friends, in order to balance the education deficit in Africa. Starting with only 7 members, the association from Cologne has now 24 volunteers in Germany and several helping hands in Cameroon.
comdivision is known for one of it's main mission in knowledge transfer, therfore we liked the idea of investing in future development by education. That is why we engaged with ident.africa in 2012 and support projects to help people in Cameroon to build education and social services for the local community. We think that the setup of a working local education community is the best way to establish a local business.
Since a goal-oriented work is only possible with a profound understanding of the social, economical and political structure, ident.africa founded another NGO directly in Cameroon. The complete project monitoring is carried out at site by the coordination office in Douala:
- Survey of the project proposals
- Monitoring of project execution
- Distribution of supplies and donations
- Control of the invested budget and donations
Furthermore, the coordination office supports ident.africa with the networking to parters in Cameroon and coordinates the travels of German delegations.
