Architecture Sans Frontieres-UK

The UK based education charity Architecture Sans Frontières-UK (ASF-UK – is running it’s annual International Workshop this year in Cameroon in August. The workshop focus is Participatory Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation of an ongoing building project in Bambouti, Eastern Cameroon.

About this workshop:

This 12 day workshop will explore, teach and test methods of measuring impacts through participatory planning, monitoring and evaluation (PPM&E). This training is open to development practitioners, built environment professionals and any individual interested in learning about measuring impacts and PPM&E.

This workshop will be implemented in partnership with Cameroon Catalyst, a UK based charity and the Mosame Trust, a Cameroon based charity working in Eastern Cameroon. So far the two organizations have successfully fundraised for and built the January Hope Centre and a mechanics and carpenters workshop in a small village called Bambouti, in Eastern Cameroon. They are currently working on the new school which is due for completion prior to the workshop.

Cameroon Catalyst and the Mosame Trust would like to understand the impact of the projects that they have built over the last few years, both on the people who were involved in the process of building, and the local communities surrounding the project. They are also very keen to develop a clear plan of action which is driven by the local community for the next stages of the programme. Cameroon Catalyst approached ASF-UK to ask if they could help in any way.

WHEN: 11th to 23rd August
WHERE: Bambouti, Estern Cameroon
COST: £700 / €850 / 33,650 CFA (for Cameroonians)
