When a People fail to understand how their decisions and actions affect the environment and their lives as well as ways they can take action to keep their environment healthy and develop communities, then sustainable development is far-fetched. This is the quest with which ECODAS began her activities in Ndu; an area which is commonly known as the coldest place in Cameroon.
The road that has led ECODAS to where it is now was not a bed of roses; it was full of challenges and knowledge curves, mistakes, trial and error interventions, lack of resources. These challenges have also strengthened us as we continually made corrections where we make mistakes, learned the greatest needs and priorities of the communities and how to work with local people to combat barriers standing in the way of community growth.
Though still growing, ECODAS is motivated by the African Proverb that says:
“If you think you are too small to make a difference, you haven’t spent a night with the smallest mosquito”.
