Due to the prevailing circumstances in the North 

West Region where LAFTA’s Multipurpose Center is under 



LAFTA continues with its activities, except its trialing trimestral events with the ageing

that use to give them great joy and relaxation.


• LAFTA in its quest to raise funds to enable her continue with the construction has

indulgedinto industrial scale agriculture involving the cultivation and transformation of

cassava as well as the cultivation and marketing of maize.


• This activity falls in line with LAFTA’s intergenerational objective of enabling the

retired and young people to work side by side depending on their different skills

in farming and the operation of a transformation mill that will be implanted hopefully

at the Bamenda Industrial Zone.


LAFTA intensifies its search for financing, funding and viable partners who will eventually

enable its expansion to other Regions, Divisions and Sub-Divisions in Cameroon.


• LAFTA recently signed a convention with PIDMA (Projet d’Investissement et de

Developpement des Marches Agricole) , as anow some seeds and fertilizers have

been delivered to catch up with the 2018 farming season.
