CAT has decided to further develop its Handicraft and Appropriate Technology sectors.

The production of dolls continues independently, but an additional area is to be opened in which the art (program with Central European artists) is included and artists in residence work for their own projects, but also with local artisans and the KidsClub.

Concerning the KidsClub, targeted events can take place in the Baptist Conference Center in Nwen.
The Royal Development Corporation will also offer targeted training seminars in the conference area of Mbegwi Monastery, which is safer and accessible to those interested.

A special event will be the Slide Show Moses Mill in the Alliance Francaise, in which the activities of the network will be shown in about 20 posters. Relevant discussions were held between the AF Director, PDP and the CAT Director.


CAT and BUST (Bamenda University of Science and Technology)

The ongoing cooperation with the University was further strengthened through a visit. Renewable energy is not a technical but a comprehensive issue. The pending publication of PDP might be of interest to the BUST, - in the publication there is still the possibility of a message from the university.

Expo Announcement

Bookmark and Share

This small exhibition shows the work of about 20 years done by the CAT. Likewise, cooperations (e.g. Akwatinuighah and Akaankang with CAT, RDC, SPATH) and special projects (e.g. weather station, drinking water tests) have been taken into account.

Particularly noteworthy are achievements of CAT in connection with the Training on the Job Initiative for young men, as well as international projects about handicrafts, as well as the national projects on alternative technology (in the districts of the NW region, but also other regions), for which various Awards and Prizes were given.

Another initiative worth mentioning is the Kids Club, where children were playfully introduced to arts and crafts and alternative techniques.

Collaborations have successfully taken place between CAT and their partners and other foreign volunteers through the initiative of Viennese designer and initiator Dr Senta Siller.
