MAROUA is the capital city of the Far North Region of Cameroon. Having more than300 000 habitants, it is the first touristic destination of the country. It is a cosmopolitan town, where we can find people from Chad, Nigeria, and Mali… Considered as the most beautiful city capital, it is in meantime the poorest region of the country. A poor quality of education, an inefficient sanitary service and a vulnerable place to epidemics like cholera.
With a very conservative mentality on the place of Women in society, sometimes fostered by the traditions, this is the context in which the MAROUA -12 campaign will be taking place Read more on Maroua http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Far_North_Region_%28Cameroon%29
