Goodness and Mercy Missions (GMM) was founded in late 2007 by Teh Francis Yai as a non-profit organization aimed at impacting communities in Cameroon. GMM was formed because there was a great demand for the community’s needs. We discovered that rural communities in Cameroon continue to suffer not so much because of the economic situation of the country but because of the lack of initiatives for individuals to help themselves and come out of their predicament. GMM activities are mainly carried out in the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon, the Anglophone areas.


GMM works in partnerships with representative organizations to help the rural poor and empower the community with tools which they can develop to sustain their livelihood.


Our greatest desire is to see rural communities and others have the needed tools and means for a sustainable livelihood.
