A research scientist by profession, Joannes is currently working as a consultant on a project funded by the World Health Organization – Health in Niger. He returned to Cameroon in January 2016, when this short documentary was made.

Hope For Children Cameroon provides educational assistance to children in poor communities, and builds toilets in schools to eliminate the practice of open defecation. This enables children – especially girls – to strive and learn with dignity.
