Contra Nocendi International and Contra Nocendi Cameroon are happy to announce the recent opening of a new permanent office in Buea in the Southwest Region of Cameroon. This is an exciting announcement for both organisations. The office was opened thanks to individual donations by supporters of Contra Nocendi International.
The office will be run by Contra Nocendi Cameroon and will allow for the expansion of the pro bono legal services and detention centre monitoring being done in partnership by Contra Nocendi Cameroon and Contra Nocendi International. Having more space to meet with clients and other interested parties related to the pro bono clinic will only enhance the clinic’s capacity and help it continue to build on its impressive start and growth. It also provides additional safe space for those interested in our pro bono clinic to talk with staff from Contra Nocendi Cameroon with confidence that their conversations will be confidential. As part of leveraging the office space, we plan to expand the number of cases we handle in 2020 as part of our pro bono clinic.
We also aim to take advantage of the new space by expanding our programming for the rights of the child in 2020. This will include programming to support greater awareness of rights for children with the aim of helping develop a greater degree of confidence in being active human rights participants.
We have been humbled by the support of our supporters and are equally excited to show all our supporters the positive impact their support is bringing. We look forward to announcing new exciting developments in Cameroon in 2020.
