CAYOL 2015

Each year in June CAMOLA members celebrate their children and youth. Traditionally in Cameroon National Youth Day is celebrated in February but because of the snow in Massachusetts we celebrate in June. The flag was raised at City Hall on Saturday June 13th. Sharing in our celebration was Lowell City Mayor Rodney Elliot and our sister City Councilor Rita Mercier. On Sunday, June 14th the celebration continued with games, competitions, science experiments and food at Shedd Park. Our children our are future and we must take time to celebrate and honor them!

We meet once a month, on the 1st Saturday. However, if this day falls on a major holiday weekend, then the meeting is moved to the following Saturday. We welcome you to attend one of our meetings.

CAMOLA's Mission

Our primary Goal is to bring together all the peoples in the City of Lowell affiliated to Cameroon, and share the cultural heritage with the rest of the Citizens of Lowell. Specifically, CAMOLA's purpose as an Association in the Greater Lowell area, is as follows:

  • Mobilize Cameroonians/ Africans as whole in the Greater Lowell area to be active in the City's sociocultural and economic development.
  • To partner with the City of Lowell and through various outreach activities help to foster the City's reputation as the cultural melting pot of America.
  • Partner with the area's Law Enforcement Agencies (Lowell Police Department & Middlesex County D. A.'s office) to build a positive image of our immigrant communities, by ensuring that law enforcement expectations of us, are reflective of our unique background and heritage.
  • Provide moral and financial support within our immigrant community, as well as make charitable contributions to support various needs-based services in our US home and back in our country of origin, Cameroon.
  • Educate members of both the Cameroonian Community, and the Lowell Citizenry at large, on the ethnic heritage, background and culture of the Cameroonian people.
  • Provide a milieu for recreation, cultural integration, and education within the African immigrant community.
  • Promote Cameroonian and Pan-African culture through traditional arts, handicrafts and cultural celebrations.
