Mushroom cultivation sustained

For close to three years now Green Care Association(GCA) has continued with its mushroom cultivation program. This practice has been going on during the dry and wet season.  GCA has also succeeded in training many individual farmers as well as groups. Some have benefited seed multiplication as well. Reason Why one GCA local volunteer Rita recently declared " I now see great value with my voluntary time in GCA due to the fact that am now understand so  much about much cultivation as a job from seed multiplication, management to planting, harvesting and preservation of mushroom". We at GCA are grateful to Global Giving donors whose donations helped a great deal to take Green Care to appreciable level in Mushroom cultivation. We shall for ever be grateful and are determined to continue doing our best. Thank you.

GCA Improves Agricultural Training Centre

For over five months, we have not been able to submit any reports. This is due to Internet shot down in the Anglophone Regions of Cameroon. We deeply apologize for this.


After completing the building hosting our Agricultural Training Centre, the outside walls and the veranda were lacking finishing until recently. The outside walls and the veranda have completed. This has given the building the beauty it deserves. All this is thanks to generous donations from GlobalGiving. One of our neighbours, Mr. Joseph remarked ‘I can now appreciate the full beauty of this building’.


After this completion, Green Care Association is hoping for a fruitful year at the Agricultural Training Centre.

Progress at the Mushroom Cultivation Centre

Delighted with Increasing Mushroom Harvest

For over four months now Green Care Association (GCA) has been making efforts and fund raising to complete construction of the mushroom house. The structure has given the Shisong community and its environs the opportunity to train in mushroom cultivation. This practice has accelerated small-holder mushroom producers and improved rural livelihoods. Thanks to GlobalGiving funds GCA has been able to acquire some additional equipment that is helping in the mushroom cultivation and trainings. Although some finishing work remains to be done with plastering of walls, ceiling and veranda the structure is already functional to the appreciation of many. It is for these reasons that one of GCA staff Donatus remarked “… I am very happy to have been part of the achievement for my community…” In spite of uncompleted structure, mushroom output at GCA is increasing. We forever remain grateful to GlobalGiving funds.
