Cameroon is located on the West African coastline. Through its history of British and French colonialism, most people speak English or French, though more than 100 other dialects are spoken as well. It has one of the stronger economies in sub-Saharan Africa, but still its people face problems like corruption, unequal wealth distribution, and a lack of adequate infrastructure. 7 out of 10 young people are underemployed, and more than 40% of the population lives below the poverty line.
Prescraft is dedicated to preserving the rich cultural heritage of Cameroon in West Africa. Prescraft has enabled hundreds of disadvantaged handicraft producers to sell their products within the fair trade market and become self-reliant.
