We, the members of the members of Cameroon Association of Active Youths (CAMAAY), a non-profit association, commit ourselves to work in the interest of humanity without distinction as to race, sex or religious background with due respect to the law. We pledge to work closely with other associations, foreign representatives/institutions, NGOs and the Cameroon Government in promoting the principles and practices of quality agriculture, education, healthcare, sports, social well-being and environmental protection. We agree to join forces in the attainment of the United Nations objective in making the world a better place in which to live, with sufficient food and conducive environments. We therefore commit ourselves to achieving our objectives through our activities and the implementation of policies consistent with our objectives. We agree to work with respect to the laws governing the functioning of associations. We believe that: 1) Agriculture is the backbone of our economy. 2) Agriculture is top among our efforts in the fight against poverty, which is a global challenge 3) 80% of our people still live in rural areas and solely depend on agriculture for survival. 4) Our environment is and will remain the only natural habitation for humanity and if care is not taken mankind will be eliminated from his environment. 5) Health is the basic requirement for a productive and progressive community and can only be achieved through what people eat, the environment in which they live and mental well-being. 6) T
