The Association Emmanuel du Cameroun (AEC) was born on 15th September 1991. The assoiation is a non-profit-organisation, which works apolitical, missionary and christian. The AEC is located in Yaounde in Cameroon and is headed by Reverend Samuel Ngnitedem.
The aim of the association is primarily the rehabilitation and social reintegration of orphans and street children, juvenile delinquents, juvenile vagrants, social outsiders, early school leavers and children in poverty from 6 to 18 years. On average 150 children benefit per year by the aid of the AEC. Depending on their situation they can be supplied for a longer or shorter time.

The AEC supports also parents, prostitutes and alkoholics to strengthen the familiar relationship in Cameroon. („Opération sauver la Famille“ – Operation to save families).
The focus is on three issues:
- To mediate the mental, moral and spiritual character and to give general education and mechanical skills to the children in the rehabilitation to strengthen them for their future life.
- The healing of internal injuries (morally, spiritually, mentally)
- A new identity, new relations and new confidence
On the spiritual level, the AEC teaches the children how to achieve a personal relationship with god through prayer, meditation and the bible.
On the physical level, the AEC teaches children practical work (learn domestic duties … ) or sports (different games, theater, leisure).
In order to educate the children the AEC holds seminars, conferences and debates and offers the children general education (reading, writting, written calculations…) and vocational training.
Furthermore, the AEC operates a program for reconciliation to restore broken family relationships.
This activities should ensure the social reintegration with the help of the family, after the child has found his new identity and personallity, to open the way for a fulfilled and prouctive life (spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically).
