Did you know that Cameroon’s non-profit sector added 317.3 billion CFA Francs (approximately US $673.2 million) to the country’s economy, accounting for 2.5% of total GDP in 2011? That contribution came from 7,579 organizations, which employed more than 218,000 full-time equivalent (FTE) workers, including 38,2088 FTE volunteers.
