About Us

Global Hand Cameroon (GLOHA) is a Community Based Organization in Cameroon with its head office on the slopes of Mount Cameroon. Our objectives are to identify opportunities to improve people’s livelihoods and alleviate poverty, and to engage communities in the sustainable management of natural resources.

Towards this goal, we work to engage communities in ecosystem protection and preservation, community development, and ecotourism in order to reduce unemployment and provide sustainable livelihoods to families within the Mount Cameroon area. Through this, we are confident we can reduce the rate of illegal hunting and indiscriminate/unsustainable harvesting of natural resources.

Part of our activity is to promote community development by assisting in community projects, programs and activities.  GLOHA is the Local Support Organization (LSO) for the Mount Cameroon National Park Service in the Bomboko I Cluster, which serves six communities just outside the park along the northwest boundary (Bomana, Kotto I, Kotto II, Efolofo, Kuke Kumbu and Mweli). As the LSO, we work closely with villagers on livelihood and conservation activities.

Our vision is to increase efforts in monitoring farming activities within the area and educating farmers on conservation agriculture and climate change (adaptation and mitigation).  Climate change presents both challenges and opportunities in the farming sector; Climate Smart Agricultural practices can help farmers adapt and sustain their livelihoods.

To meet our objectives, we welcome the volunteer services of people from every background, irrespective of race, gender, ethnicity, or color.  We embrace volunteerism as a strength in fostering community development programs and projects.
