Reacting to her new responsibility, the Manyu born said she was very thrilled when she got her letter of engagement at ERuDeF. ‘I have always loved to work for an organization so diverse in its approach of biodiversity conservation. It was therefore exciting when I was given the opportunity to join ERuDeF which today is one of the leading NGOs in Cameroon”

She brings with her previous experience in public relations working with the leading agro-industrial company, the Cameroon Development Corporation (CDC) Catholic Communication Service and First Technologies.
