CDVTA currently reaches approximately 74,500 individuals through 324 Elder (Old People) Clubs, over 450 volunteers and 129 villages in NW Cameroon. Currently CDVTA has 10 staff including their new community nurse just funded this year.
A village may have several Elder (Old People) Clubs. An average club consists of 50 members or more and 2 volunteers. Clubs are located geographically in villages so Elders living close to each other develop relationships and do not have to travel far to meet. Before the clubs were developed, Elders were isolated and lonely. Now they come together lead projects in the village, support each other, sing and dance, participate in the various projects and oversee activities via their clubs.
