Who we are
The new spirit of the Camerounian diaspora
We are a non-profit organization that promotes social integration, intercultural communication and economic cooperation between the Cameroonian community in Germany and its host country.
The Hamburg-based association Challenge Camerounais e.V., generally abbreviated to “CC e.V.”, is made up of Cameroonian associations with legal status in different German cities.
One of our flagship events is the “Challenge Event” which started in 1992 in Bielefeld with a football tournament. Since then, it has been held every year in different cities and is the most important cultural and sporting event of the Cameroonian diaspora in Europe.
In 2005, the “Business and Social Forum” (BSF) was integrated into the event to foster business contacts within the community, between the diaspora and the home country as well as with the German industrial world to encourage investments in Cameroon in particular and Africa in general. This business aspect is becoming increasingly important. Another major event of the association is the “Challenge Camerounais Winter Academy” whose first edition will take place in January 2021.
