Our mission: Opportunities for Businesses

They say if you want to do a little good, set up a non-profit organisation. And if you want to do a big amount of good, create a for-profit organisation.

The name “KAC” stands for Kamerun4AfrikaClub. In 2007, the Kamerun4AfrikaClub e. V. (KAC) association was founded by Dr. Akuma Saningong. This association grants educational scholarships for children and young people. The founder himself says: “Education has been my Shield, my Sword and my Olive Branch”.

He saw his social commitment always as a limitation, as the organisation is dependent on donations. By taking the step of creating a for-profit company of the same name, he wants to expand his activities and continue to strengthen the bonds between Germany/Europe and Africa and the people on the ground in Africa.
