The objective of OFFGO is to support traditional farming and nomadic livestock communities in the North West Region of Cameroon. Serious human rights violations, including attacks on our working spaces and farms, expulsion from the country of our founder and chairman, arbitrary and illegal detentions, death threats, torture, assassination attempts, hinder the development of our programs. Community members have had their livelihoods destroyed and their lives torn apart, with no sign of justice, accountability, compensation or redress. The UN Secretary-General documents reprisals (.docx (2020) or .pdf (2020), .docx (2021)) (or selected pages (.png): 16, 17) that the individuals involved in the set up of OFFGO have faced for engaging with the UN.
