In 2017 Obama Friends Cameroon (OFC) saw a need to engulf a wider perspective and to broaden the scope of the organization. With new ideas and expertise into the management team, a broader agenda was set for the organization and the name modified from Obama Friends Cameroon (OFC) to Crusaders For Environmental Protection And Ozone Watch (CEPOW) to meet this new agenda geared towards environmental protection. CEPOW is a membership organization. Currently, we have a membership of 15 (national and international).
