If we are blessed in order to serve the most needy and unfortunate, do it with pure heart and expect no returns

About Us

Lelewal is an indigenous peoples non-governmental organization founded by a group of indigenous youths in 2003 and legalized in 2006 under the Cameroonian law on freedom of associations and political parties. The organization was born out of the dire need for advocacy to ensure the respect of the rights of indigenous peoples and other marginalized groups in the Republic of Cameroon especially as stipulated or enshrined in the UN declaration on the rights of indigenous peoples and other related human rights instruments and standards.
