Sustainable Development

RECESD is a registered non-profit organisation (Reg. No. 358/G37/D14/VOL II/SAAJP) with head-office in Buea, Cameroon.

It was founded in October 2008 by 8 graduate students determined
to contribute to a change in their local community under the former name “Rural Alliance for Youth Development- RAYD”. In 2013, there was a need to engulf a wider perspective and to broaden the scope of the organisation. This brought in new ideas and expertise into the management team.
A broader agenda was set for the organisation and the name was modified from RAYD to RECESD to meet this
new agenda.
