Ndanifor Garden Trust UK was established in the 1990’s to support a community garden in Yaoundé, Cameroon.

This work has developed and recently moved to a new site in Bafut, Cameroon. An umbrella organisation: Betterworld, Cameroon has been established, which is now developing a Permaculture Eco Village.  Betterworld is committed to involving and empowering local people in appropriate use of the land, networking with other Permaculture organisations internationally and establishing COOPs in their area.

A board of trustees based in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK continues to raise funds for the work of the Ndanifor Eco Village in Bafut. This funding is from regular donations by individuals through monthly standing orders and with fundraising events: concerts, auctions and CD sales.

We’re restructuring our website over the next month or two to improve access to those who want to support the exciting work in Cameroon.


Ndanifor Auction Raises £1700

The Ndanifor UK Garden Trust auction on the 2nd October in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, was ably led by the hilarious Chris Bostock. Despite a relatively small crowd, he managed to get the donations up to a total of £1200. Add on a lottery win of £500 generously donated from ‘down south’ and the figure tops £1700.

Onward and upward for the work of Ndanifor in Cameroon.
