The Transformative Journey of Xhuma Africa's Founder"

The founder of Xhuma Africa, born into an average African family with ten siblings, faced a life-changing event when kidnapped by rebels for attending school during the Anglophone conflict in Cameroon. Despite overcoming the trauma, he transitioned into teaching, experienced the harsh conditions of the Sahara Desert, and realized the interconnection between climate change and conflict, inspiring his mission to unite the fight for peace and environmental protection through Xhuma Africa.
