ERuDeF Institute Gain Skills in Article Writing

Staff of the ERuDeF Institute of Biodiversity and Non-Profit studies (ERuDeF Institute) have acquired skills on article writing. This was the outcome of a one day workshop organised recently at the Conference hall of the Institute by the Public Relation Officer (PRO) of the Institute, Bertrand Shancho Ndimuh, in collaboration with the Management of the Institute.

The organisation of this workshop, according to Director of ERuDeF Institute, Akeh Nug, was motivated by a number of factors. “Reporting environmental issues, key events and other news worthy activities occurring around most times doesn’t come easily. For this reason, most news worthy events go either unreported or under reported because they do not know what to write or how to write,” the Director expounded.

ERuDeF Institute’s role In Water Management Within Buea Municipality

Water is life! If man does not protect its sources, then in some years to come human population will suffer enormous dangers because of shortage/lack of water. It is for this reason that the ERuDeF Institute of Biodiversity and Non-Profit Studies has since 2015 been engaged in conserving watersheds within the Buea Municipality. The first effort towards saving water sources within Buea was the planting of some 40 trees around the Mile 18 water catchment in 2015, in collaboration with the Southwest Regional Delegation of Environment, Protection of Nature and Sustainable Development (MINEPDED) and the traditional ruler of Mile 18.

Daunting-Exciting Experience of Tracking Apes in Rainforest

Categories: News

Being a person who never goes to gym or does exercises; plus being a slow walker, I am probably the most unsuitable person to go hiking in the rainforest!!  However, I wanted to help in the Cross River Gorilla/Chimpanzee project of the Environment and Rural Development Foundation (host by ERuDeF Institute of Biodiversity and Non-Profit Studies) in Cameroon. So, after receiving orientation from African Conservation Foundation (ACF), I signed up and booked a flight to Cameroon.

Due to the “situation’ my proposed programme was amended which meant no Conservation Education. I spent Monday quietly at the hotel because of the strike and started travelling the next day, with Grace (ERuDeF Institute Biologist).  Using various forms of transport, we eventually arrived Bechati ( an adjacent community to the Tofala Hill Wildlife Sanctuary) by bike.

“ERuDeF Institute Offered Me Job Even as a Student”

When I graduated from the University in 2013, I was hoping to get a job immediately, but later discovered that I could not get a good job with my current certificate because there was no skill attached. After a hard struggle to get a professional certificate, I then decided to enroll at the ERuDeF Institute of Biodiversity and Non-Profit studies to study NGO management through the ERuDeF Junior Professional programme. Besides, being admitted into the ERuDeF Institute, I was lucky enough to pick up a job from the institution as an Administrative Assistant.

“ERuDeF Institute Offered Me Schorlaship that Revived My Career Dream”

Like most youths of my generation, after High School, studying courses like banking and finance, marketing or accounting amongst others were my immediate career choice, with the hope of securing  a white coller job in future. I later realised that realising my career dreams through such option, was only an illusion in Cameroon, as thousands of bankers and accountants are graduated each year and the number of jobs avilable are limited.

“Sure to Realise My Dream with the Quality of Training at ERuDeF Institute”

My name is Forbi  Perise. I am an Agroforestry Management Student at the ERuDeF Institute of Biodiversity and Non-Profit Studies (ERuDeF Institute).   I am a lover of nature with strong passion for environmental protection. In a bid to realize such a passion, I enrolled into the University of YaoundeI shortly after my Advanced Level to study Geology. One year after, I stopped schooling because I never found fulfillment in my study area and the nature of training. I saw my stay there as a complete waste of time, and so decided to come back to Buea.

Biodiversity conservation had never been my dream career. I had always wanted to be a medical doctor. All I studied and put interest in, was geared towards that. After my degree in Zoology at the University of Dschang, I could not achieve my dream; I even ran out of options. It was at this point that I got in contact with the ERuDeF Institute through its marketing agent, in 2014. After firm conviction from the explanations of the different programmes,
