Collaborate with us to promote peace and environmental Preservation
What is peacebuilding
Peacebuilding involves addressing the root causes of conflict while also supporting societies to manage their differences and conflicts without resorting to violence
hate speech on social media contributes to violence escalation in African conflicts; thus, we are implementing a project to train trainers at the University of Bamenda in countering hate speech amid the Anglophone crisis challenges.
The Word Xhuma comes from the Zulu Language which means to connect. Xhuma Africa therefore means Connect Africa. Xhuma Africa is a youth-led, youth centered and youth focused not-for-profit association of young people who have experienced first-hand the damaging consequences of armed violence in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon and decided to take action and contribute to peacebuilding and environmental preservation with head quarter in Bamenda Cameroon. We put compassion into action through our community engagement activities

We train youths to promote peace, volunteerism, environmental conservation and civic engagement in an atmosphere of tolerance, shared values and mutual understanding
We envision a connected African Society where young people are inspired to cooperate and take action in creating peace promoting environmental conservation
