Welcome to BACDA-USA


The Bakossi people (Bekose) come from the Kupe-Muanenguba region (Ekose) of the Republic of Cameroon. We are a cultural and development organization whose membership is open to all Bekose in the diaspora, their significant others, friends and well-wishers.

We seek to promote the Bakossi culture such as the language (Akose), education, healthcare and development. The Mission of the members of BACDA-USA is to perpetuate the Bakossi man’s legendary hospitality and hard work by assisting in the advancement of social, educational and public health development for the Bekose. We initiate activities such fundraiser with a view to providing charitable and educational services to diaspora community in the United States of America and the Bakossi people of the Republic of Cameroon.

Thank you for visiting this website. We hope and wish you will learn more about the Bekose (Bakossi people) and Ekose (Bakossi region). As a visitor you will find vital information about issues pertinent to the socio-economic and cultural development of the Bekose.  I hope you will find the information helpful and educative, and that you will share this information with others.
