VSO's programme in Cameroon opened in 1998. It focussed on gender equality, education and health.VSO Cameroon’s focus is to increase the power of disadvantaged women to demand and access growth-oriented economic opportunities and quality education and health services.

In 2011, VSO reviewed the best way to allocate our resources to make the greatest possible difference to global poverty. We decided we would begin to close programmes if the country we were operating in was:

  • not least developed
  • had relatively smaller numbers of people in poverty
  • had less regional or global influence

Our office in Cameroon closed in April 2014.
