The Presbyterian Church in Cameroon (PCC) is the largest reformed church in West Africa. It is involved in the educational and healthcare sectors, HIV work and training for skilled workers as well as fair trade. This commitment plays its part in improving living and working conditions for the population, especially in the English-speaking regions of Cameroon. where a conflict with the francophone central government has been escalating since 2016. 

Mission 21 makes an important contribution through its coordination activities on the ground. The local coordinator, Lumumba Mukong, supports the project leaders and partner organisations and coordinates emergency aid with churches, international and local NGOs. Project coordination helps with networking and provides a bridge between the players on the ground and Mission 21 in Basel.
