Lenan Poueh Menoua is a special social club which is culturally tied to Cameroon and, particularly, to the region of Dschang and the francophone north-west Bamileké peoples who also speak Yemba and, often, English. Like many African Diaspora social clubs that exist in and around the U.S. Capitol, Lenan has various philanthropic missions here and back in the "motherland," which in this case is Cameroon. Their projects have varying degrees of success but they are always ongoing; moreover, nobody's better at implementing philanthropic enterprises in central Africa than ex-patriots who maintain strong ties to the country of their birth. They're experts at seeing to it that the money (or effort or donated goods) goes where it's supposed to go.

Members of Lenan pay annual dues and attend a variety of social functions throughout the year. Besides the annual celebratory functions and monthly meetings, there are also special celebrations for newborns, christenings, graduations, etc., and the organization also hosts funerals for members' immediate family and helps pay for their funerary and travel expenses. However, these are all part of the normal social function of the meeting rather than related to special philanthropic and charitable activities; for that, Lenan has an annual fundraiser with live musical performances and dancing but they also take up special collections and they have sometimes accepted on-line donations over the internet via their website.

In short, if you want your donation to help disadvantaged students and other impoverished people in Cameroon, then you can feel good about supporting the philanthropic missions of Lenan Poueh Menoua. See their website or contact lenandc@gmail.com for more information.
