Mbororo Social and Cultural Development Association (MBOSCUDA)

MBOSCUDA is a social organization of the Mbororo community which seeks to regroup Mbororo potentials in order to redefine their priorities, according to their aspirations as a people, as well as, curb some of the excesses of ignorance and illiteracy.
MBOSCUDA was created in 1992. Its formation began in 1987 and became a reality in 1992 when the Fulani Social Development (FUSUDA), the Fulani foundation of Cameroon (FUFOUCAM) and the Mbororo Development Association (MDA) met in Bamenda, Kumbo, and Yaounde respectively. These merged in 1992 in Yaounde to form the Mbororo Social and Cultural Development Association- MBOSCUDA. A non-partisan, non profit socio-cultural development association, the association has grassroot structures in nine of the ten regions with about 40,000 adherences. MBOSCUDA was created with a vision to empower Mbororo pastoralists to achieve sustainable and equitable development on their own terms and to secure their human, social and economic rights as valued active citizens of Cameroon.

Objectives include to reinforce the unity among members as well as other communities by promoting dialogue, cooperation, integration and tolerance, to promote socioeconomic, cultural development of Mbororo, particularly the women by improving their standard of living, to promote Mbororo education especially the youths, to improve agro-pastorals practices in order to protect the environment and to facilitate all forms of cooperation with persons or groups who can help in realizing these objectives and contribute to the good management of pastures and lands.

The organisation’s constituencies are the Mbororo people in all the nine regions of Cameroon
