The Baka Project was initiated in 1990 by Father Sergio Janeselli. The goal of the project is emancipation of the Baka Pygmies in their traditional environment camps in their forest. The project is active in the regions of Djoum and Kribi in the South Province of Cameroon.

The Baka are traditionally semi-nomadic hunter-gatherers that live in the tropical rainforest of south-eastern and southern Cameroon. Estimated to total about 40,000 today, their numbers are fading considerably due to various reasons.

The Baka Project carries out activities in three major areas that help the Baka Pygmies:

These activities are carried out in the remote forest areas of southern Cameroon, a considerable distance from the capital about 300 kms. to Djoum and 296 kms. to Kribi. The Baka Project is funded entirely by well-wishers in various countries.

Since we are only able to provide a limited amount of information on this website, only a few important aspects of our work and its background are mentioned here. However, if you would like to know more about our activities and how you can help, please contact us at the project.
