Our History

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]The Mfombo Foundation (MfoFou) was founded in 2003 by Didacus Mfomboas a community based organization (CBO) to promote tree planting activities around water catchments in the Bamendankwe hill. After planting tree in 2003, Mfombo realized that the trees planted needed to be taken care off. Furthermore, field survey indicated how rich the already fragmented forests of the Bamenda highland forest were. For example, Birdlife International and academic researchers highlighted the presence of endemic plants, insects, birds and other wildlife in the landscape. With the understanding of how small populations of endemic wildlife species such as the Bannerman’s turaco were continuously at risk of extinction due to hunting and habitat disturbance,Mfombo upgraded the CBO into a NGO in 2010. MfoFou was later registered as a public charity with 501 (c) (3) Status in the United States of America. MfoFou’s mission is to make communities take care of nature so that nature can in return take care of them.
