About Us


Inspiring The Generosity of a New Generation

The Mendem Foundation is a non-profit organization established in 2020 by a group of professionals from Cameroon. We are all alumni of Sacred Heart College in Bamenda, an all-boys boarding school, graduating in 1991. From an early stage, we learned the importance of prioritizing high moral values, being genuine and authentic, and fostering camaraderie among ourselves. We also understood that our background did not determine our future and worked hard towards realizing our aspirations. Now, after several decades of experience, we are committed to using our skills for the betterment of the community, particularly the youth who need a helping hand to achieve their goals. We believe in social justice, and the best way to achieve this is by removing obstacles that prevent vulnerable and needy individuals from progressing.

We Normalise

We aim to end period shame and eliminate menstrual stigma by promoting conversation and education. Join us in the fight against period poverty by providing washable pads and menstrual supplies to women who can’t afford them.

We Educate

Education is a gift that keeps on giving. Once it is received, it cannot be stolen. This is our biggest project because education lies at the heart of what we do. It goes beyond the classroom and good grades. We are nurturing talent and coaching the leaders of the future.

We Develop

Social Development in Africa includes various sectors. Our initiatives aim to improve community well-being, inclusive economic growth, and good governance.

We Empower

Economic Empowerment aims to provide individuals with the skills, knowledge, and resources they need to become successful entrepreneurs and create sustainable income opportunities. This is done through training, mentorship, and access to financial support.

"It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving"

– Mother Theresa

Giving, the key to success, fulfillment, prosperity, and a life of prosperity. The world needs more people who go into the world and give their all to aid in the betterment of society.

Jude M. Kijem

People need to stand up and start adding value to other people’s lives by being of service and living selflessly. The good you put out into the world will return to you in an abundance.

Jeffrey Chenyi

I learned to give not because I have much, but because I know exactly how it feels to have nothing. There is abundant joy associated with lifting another person up.
