- Exploration of the lush rainforests of Korup National Park
- A celebration with jujus (masked performers) and meeting the Fon (traditional King)

- Inauguration of a public well in Jakiri village to provide a source for clean water

Often described as Africa-in-miniature, Cameroon boasts each of the Continent’s major climatic zones, as well as over 250 distinct ethnic groups, each with its own language, customs and spiritual practices. Located on the coast of West Africa, the nation has a size and population similar to the state of California. Cameroon enjoys a greater stability and relatively low HIV/AIDS rate than much of sub-Saharan Africa, though poverty and preventable health conditions challenge millions of Cameroonians each day. The Himalayan Institute Community Center in Kumbo addresses these needs and provides sources of sustainable income and healthcare.
