JTJ Cameroon

JTJ Cameroon is Join the Journey’s branch in Cameroon, forming in 2013 after a board member helped shepherd the official processes of formation in the country. JTJ Cameroon first began activities in a northwest rural province called Tiben, focusing on compassion outreach and empowerment of local farmers through raising poultry. JTJ Cameroon were forced to evacuate from Tiben in 2017 as may of the beneficiaries we had befriended were killed at the cost of a government reprisal against an independence movement. JTJ Cameroon piloted a 10-month micro-loan program in Great Soppo where all five entrepreneurs repaid their loans.
