Who we are


Vision of eden foundation

Guided by the belief that the achievement of sustainable development cannot be accomplished without a healthy population, EDEN Foundation seeks to help all individuals lead healthy and productive lives. In the developing world, it focuses on improving health and alleviating extreme poverty. In Cameroon, the foundation promotes access to education and health for all, professional insertion, agriculture and graphics arts. In 2015, the United Nations developed the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a universal call to eradicate poverty and hunger, ensure global health and safety, and transform the world by 2030. The SDGs give us the way forward to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They respond to the global challenges the world faces, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate and environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice. The goals are interconnected and, to leave no one behind, it is important to reach each of them, and each of their targets. Our members firmly believe in universal and equitable access to the basic conditions that are necessary to achieve health and sustainable development for all.
