The G.O.A.T.T. Project
The Elderly Woman's Sustainable Goat Rearing Project is one of the many programs developed and administered by Community Development Volunteers for Technical Assistance (CDVTA), Cameroon’s leading organization in providing assistance and support to older people. The sale of the goats’ offspring has improved the nutritional intake and income of the elders in several impoverished communities.
All your donations go to the G.O.A.T.T. (Giving Older Adults Tools to Thrive) Project will be used to continue this thriving project, as well as to launch a new sustainable project - the construction of small community senior centers in distressed communities in Cameroon.
CDVTA was founded and is directed by Francis Njuakom whose work has garnered him the Sheila McKechnie Foundation UK 2008 International Campaigner Award and in May 2016, he was made a “Knight of Cameroon Order of Valour,” the second Highest Medal Honor in the Republic of Cameroon, for his over 20 years in the promotion of care and rights of older people.
