HISTORY

Following every established and successful years in the corporate world, Bony Dashaco, resolved to charitably reach-out to various segments of the community, through a dedicated platform fully committed to social enterprise and service. This desire led to his founding of the Bony Dashaco Foundation (BDF). The foundation is a not-for-profit organization with a two-pronged commitment to humanity;

  • To inspire young aspiring entrepreneurs and support them to start their own businesses
  • To provide for the needy and have-nots, through targeted sustainable social programmes that cut across community and public health, education, housing, and agriculture

The BDF was founded on the tested African concept of giving and caring for your village community. Its principles and led are therefore guarded by the values of selflessness, compassion and goodness.

Its founder believes that the act of giving back has been and still is an integral part of our moral duty and collective responsibility. It is a concept that has held African families and communities together for generations, despite the continent’s many challenges.

Bony Dashaco is a Cameroonian born entrepreneur, leading corporate authority, and is President Director General of ACMAR MEDIA GROUP West and Central Africa as well as Group President of Credit Africa Invest S.A. He was ranked 9th by Institut Choiseul and Forbes Magazine which placed him amongst the Top 100 of “Africa economic leaders for tomorrow” in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

The foundation’s head office is located in Buea – Cameroon, with branches in other regions of the country. Plans are underway to expand to other African countries.
