About Cameroon

Cameroon is south east of Nigeria and is home to 293 People Groups, 16 of whom are considered unreached by the Joshua Project. The largest People Group is the Adamawa Fulani of Cameroon who are predominately nomadic shepherds. The Adamawa Fulani are largely Muslim; however, like many other Fulani tribes, their Islamic practices are a bit lax. Many still follow the traditional beliefs and practices of their ancestors. Freedom of religion exists but the spread of radical Islam has increased tensions between the two faiths. In Cameroon native missionaries often establish Christian schools to educate the children of a community with the hope that both they and their relatives will come to know Jesus.
