CHAMEG was founded by Magdaline Agbor Tarkang fondly called Agbor Meg. Chameg, which stands for Changing Mentalities & Empowering Groups is one of the leading women headed, Community Based, Not for Profit, Non-Governmental organizations in Southern Cameroon in West Africa.
Chameg has launched several initiatives to include the Operation 100 Youths for a useful Holiday Program, Agropreneur Project, a training program helping women farmers hone their entrepreneurial skills, increase farming productivity, and household income.
Chameg also launched the Helping Hands Lending Cooperative to access loans to Women and other marginalized groups who are constrained by poverty and traditional norms from obtaining loans from formal financial institutions – using the GROUP SOLIDARITY methodology.
CHAMEG provides young female leaders with the resources they need to amplify their voices and bring attention to their work, and the support, flexibility and network to keep their vision and influence alive.
