History of The Greens' offices from 2010 to Present
Today, we want to share some pictures of the different offices we have used since our organization was created in 2010.
2011 was the year we got our first office that was located at Joe Corner Water Street, S-Bend Mile 3 Nkwen, Bamenda.
It was an old building that was renovated by us.
2013, we moved to Foncha Street Junction where we had a much more bigger office that was still renovated by us. Unfortunately, high rents kicked us out of the office
2014, we moved to Towers building in Mile 5 Nkwen. @mr-greens best office. He really liked the place and it was the perfect place to have an office until the Landlord told us he was transforming the entire building into a hotel.
2016, we moved to opposite St. Theresa school Junction in Mile 3 Nkwen where we spent a few months before moving to Twin Towers Building at Mile 3 Nkwen. A great place where we lasted for year.
2017, we moved back a new building adjacent our former office that was opposite St Theresa School Junction and stayed there till 2019 when the crisis in Cameroon escalated to another level. The crisis financially crippled our organization and forced us in 2019 to move to our present office that is located at Foncha Street, Opposite Providence Polyclinic.
This is one of our most accessible, well situated and financially sustainable office. We hope to stay here till we move to our own permanent site.
We are currently renovating our new office for a long term stay and except otherwise, we look forward to staying in this office till the day we construct our own office.
We will send pictures when we are done with renovation work.
