Our Mission
  CANU Association aims at building a sustainable future for the Cameroonian population and the world at large  This  involves sensitization on ways of eradicating common diseases like Malaria, typhoid, cholera; ending poverty; living peacefully with neighbours; protect and preserve the environment and helping the abandoned to grow economically,  socially, morally and otherwise.
The association offers training on modern farming methods to young Farmer. It is also concerned with environmental issues and sensitizes the population on behaviors that endanger our environment. CANU through its actions seeks a positive change for all humanity in the world, thus creating hope and a brighter future.
Our seminars, conferences and workshops are geared towards the transformation of the people's mindset from the 'usual way of doing things'  to modern and more advanced technological way. We believe that change can be effectively achieved when people change the way they think, act and so on.
By these, we aim to build a new world where people can live happily  and leave it with a brighter future for the generations to come.

b) Improve access to and use of health facilities by bringing health facilities closer to the people and also providing health care at little or no cost to the people.
c) Provision of portable water to communities to reduce risk of contamination which is one of the major causes of ill health in rural communities in Cameroon as many people drink but water from open streams and some from exposed or badly managed wells.
