The Global Welfare Association (GLOWA) is a not-for-profit, nongovernmental organization that fights against human trafficking and the damage it creates in communities throughout the Northwest Region of Cameroon.  We do this by raising awareness through community education, supporting victims, and acting as advocates on their behalf.  Through these works, GLOWA aims to nurture a culture of respect for human rights in the region, particularly those of children and women, and fight against the systematic abuses faced by the most vulnerable.

 

 

Statement of Intent

The goal of GLOWA is to significantly reduce the rate at which children are abused through trafficking and exploitation in the North West Region of Cameroon.

 

Vision

GLOWA believes that every child has the right to grow in an environment where he or she feels free and valued, and is given the opportunity to maximize his or her potential without succumbing to domestic and sexual servitude. We aspire to build child-friendly and abuse-sensitive communities where children are empowered as claim holders and promoters of their basic human rights. We are committed to upholding these rights as a way of preparing future generations of Cameroonians to become productive citizens of society.
