Retour sur l’assemblée générale de la Fondation Gacha – février 2020

17 February - 10 March 2020

Every year our teams from Paris and Bangoulap meet in Cameroon for the general assembly of the Jean-Félicien Gacha Foundation.

The General Assembly of the Jean-Félicien Gacha Foundation took place on Friday 21 February 2020 in Bangoulap. On the sidelines of this annual meeting, which brings together partners, volunteers, friends and the team of the Espace Culturel Gacha: a week of festivities was proposed to the public who came in large numbers.


On the left: family photo with the founders, teams, volunteers, members of the Board of Directors as well as the White Queen. On the right : the now traditional yoga session, led by Rajesh Kumar.


Many personalities and authorities are faithful to this annual event during which the Foundation gives donations to its partners, such as furniture to equip schools, made in its woodworking workshops. On the left the prefect of Ndé signs the guestbook of the event, in the center and on the right the Chef Bazou with our president, Ly Dumas.


The General Assembly is an opportunity for the Espace Culturel Gacha to present all its actions carried out from France in favour of the Jean-Félicien Gacha Foundation (left). A highlight that allows us to plan the projects and perspectives to be carried out during the next year and to sign a collaboration agreement between our two structures (right). Find here the list of projects supported in Cameroon in 2020.


The ‘Cross-country of the Fondation Jean-Félicien Gacha’ is another memorable moment dedicated to the youth of Bangoulap.
