My mission is to foster global citizenship in and outside of the classroom. In my role as adjunct professor, I integrate Global Citizenship Education (GCE) into curriculum across disciplines. I bring my passion for GCE to the community as a consultant to help schools, businesses and organizations integrate global citizenship into their work to enhance impact. My focus area is helping to create more welcoming communities. By applying a community engaged teaching pedagogy, I cultivate partnerships with refugee organizations all over the world to help learners of all ages explore and understand the challenges of a globalized world through the lens of migration. Through course design, workshops and engagement initiatives, I aim to inspire positive change by helping learners of all ages apply components of global citizenship into all facets of life.

Many countries have yet to understand the difference between the MDGs and the SDGs, particularly their universality, the huge potential of new data methods to help with their implementation, and the systems thinking that is needed to deliver the vision. The danger is that individual goals may be prioritized without an understanding of the potential positive interactions between goals. Growing points: There is an increasing understanding that sustainable development needs a paradigm shift in our understanding of the interaction between the real economy and quality of life.  Please visit my blog here?

I am a professional individual concerned with  creating and rebuilding of sustainable communities in Cameroon.  My approach to these issues is too fold, combining sustainability and education. To me sustainability means being able to support your own health and the health of your community in a way that is long term. Central to this is access to food, clean water, suitable homes and freedom from violence. Education means that the techniques and lessons needed to support this way of life are transmitted successfully to the people of the community, such that a balanced life can be achieved, and the means to acquire it are not forgotten. ​​​​​I am very good at Networking, running children Education programs, a strong activist on Gender and gender base violence, Women empowerment programs and menstrual hygiene campaigns.
