Project abstract
Nabu Cameroon

Project NABU (knowledge transfer beyond boundaries) is dedicated to the empowerment of local communities through sharing of the knowledge, technology, and human resources necessary to improve living conditions, understand global issues, and attain sustainable development. The guiding principle behind NABU's commitment to sustainable development is the implementation of distance education and Information Communication Technology to reach and interact with ethnically and geographically diverse populations.

NABU-Cameroon - will use computer and Internet services to provide HIV/AIDS education and especially to promote the use of condoms in the university of Dschang community. Talking about sex is still taboo in Cameroon. The Internet will certainly attract students and will therefore be an effective medium for disseminating sex- related information. CRHI will emphasize peer-education. CHRI will also adapt to the context of Dschang strategies that have proven successful in countries such as Senegal and Uganda.
