Meg Wah Community Orchard for Kids by Kids

 Meg Wah (My Earth), founded in August 2016 by Ako Peter, is a registered non profit and non governmental organization with registration number 012/G37D14/VOLI/SAAJP. The Organization seeks to create an eco-friendly mindset in Cameroon.

According to the U.N. FAO, 42.1% or about 19,916,000 ha of Cameroon is forested. Of these forest cover, 18.1% of it or around 4,400,000 ha is lost annually. The main cause of the lost is population increase and over dependency on natural resources for survival. There has been unsustainable exploitation of these resources which is causing significant environmental degradation.

Local community members who live close to these resources are found to suffer the most when degradation occurs because they depend solely on these resources for their lives and livelihoods. Meg Wah wants to see a Cameroon where humans live in harmony with nature by empowering youths to become environmental ambassadors and enabling communities to solve problems themselves, through a variety of engagement, policy changes and restoration activities.

What We Do

Eco-school.

Our Eco-school program introduces young people to the environment in a way which develops understanding, appreciation, wonder and respect for nature. Through the Eco-School, we empower children and youth to protect the environment by creating and providing opportunities where they can learn, interact and work to care for the environment.

Youth leadership training.

We provide tailored trainings to youth leaders, equiping them to be effective social and environmental change leaders. They work with us in their communities to protect the environment. Each of the youth we train has a desire to act as an environmental ambassador in their respective communities.

Policy advocacy

We partner with local and International environmental organizations to ensure that developmental projects undergo Environmental impact assessment and involves the community from the planning to the implementation of such projects

Community intervention programs

Our community intervention program is divided into two. Curative and preventive interventions. The curative intervention looks at water scarcity, deforestation, landscaping, watershed management by working with affected communities to get into the root cause of the problem, identify the solution(s) and mobilize resources to solve the problem. The curative intervention focuses on the use of indigenous seeds, organic farming and permaculture. These agricultural methods are natural, retaining the plant nutrients, making the soil hard, preventing erosion and encouraging the growth of plants. It at the same time contributes to the cycling of water and thus makes the ecosystem of the place much more alive. The new ecosystem full of live will prevent environmental degradation of any sort
