Steem Cameroon Community Application
Steem Cameroon is a community for Cameroonian steemians in Cameroon and around the globe that has as its principal objectives to raise awareness, recruit, mentor, curate, and support Cameroonian steemians.
The community is unique in that it represents the country, Cameroon and It’s the only Steemit Community for Cameroon. The community is open to Cameroonian steemians as well as Steemians who are interested in learning more about Cameroon while supporting the community's growth. Some key aspects that make the community worth joining include;
- The community was selected as a Tier 1 Booming Community Support Community

- The community is providing high delegation rewards i.e. 01 Steem per 100 SP delegated per month. More details here: https://steemit.com/hive-195150/@steem-cameroon/steem-cameroon-delegations-reward-program
- The community reviews and curates all her members' blogs/posts giving them feedback on how they can become better and successful steemians.

All the members of our team are Cameroonians and native English speakers. We’re still volunteering while working on a rewards program for the team members who have dedicated their knowledge, time, and talent to grow the community.
Steem Cameroon Membership
Steem Cameroon community was created 10 months ago and currently has 1386 Subscribers with 112 Active Posters.
In a bid to grow the community account, a census of members was done three months ago with the following membership statistics;
|Membership Category||Number of Members|
|Posts Delegators||averagely 11|
Community Curation Account
Steem Cameroon’s community curation account is @steem-cameroon and three months ago when we submitted our first application for the Communities of the Month Support Program, the account held 12,625.01 Steem (5,702.96 + 6,922.05 SP delegated).
Today, the account holds 35,991.778 SP Steem. (8,446.02 + 24,469.90 Delegated). This is almost 300% SP growth in three months.
The account’s Voting CSI score is 12.0 ( 0.00 % self, 132 upvotes, 58 accounts, last 7days )
We've achieved this tremendous growth via the Cameroon Steemit Njangi and 100K SP Shares Program, the Steem Cameroon Delegations Reward Program, increased Steemit Team support, and increased activity with the @steem-cameroon community account.
The country representatives @thegreens and @saxopedia, as well as the MOD, @fombae all, have access to voting with the community account as well as account keys and have even created a weekly blogs review and curation roster and you can read here: https://steemit.com/hive-195150/@steem-cameroon/steem-cameroon-weekly-blog-review-and-curation-roster-updated

This is an amazing start for our community that has been taking the lead and supporting power-ups. However, we shall identify and support our #Club5050 members via the SP Achievement Pledge Program.
The SP Achievement Pledge Program
The SP Achievement Pledge Program aims at encouraging members of the community to pledge a target SP, pledge to power up 50% of their earnings, get labeled for Steemit Team support, and work towards the realization of that SP target.
More details about the program can be read here: https://steemit.com/hive-195150/@steem-cameroon/the-sp-achievement-pledge-program-club5050-or-pledge-your-target-sp-get-labelled-and-receive-beautiful-rewards
The Steem Cameroon Admins will henceforth be prioritizing @booming and @steemcurator04 uvpotes for #club5050 members. By doing this, we will be encouraging members of our community to join the trail and power up 50% of their earnings.

Ever since we created the Steem Cameroon Weekly Blogs Review and Curation Roster, we have been leaving a lot of feedback on the posts of Cameroonian Steemians. We are now commenting on over 80% of the posts in our community but most importantly reviewing the blogs of all the registered members of the Steem Cameroon community on a weekly basis.

We've also set some basic engagement and commenting rules for members of our community with respect to @steem-cameroon's posts. Members of our community are required to comment, upvote, and resteem @steem-cameroon posts to be eligible for @steemcurator04 and @booming upvotes. More about this can be read here: https://steemit.com/hive-195150/@steem-cameroon/steem-cameroon-posts-interaction-obligations
In a bid to promote inter-steemians' engagement and commenting, we have created different WhatsApp groups;
- We have the Steemit Cameroon WhatsApp Group which is meant for general discussions among Cameroonian steemians and the welcoming of Newbies.
- We have the Steemit Achievement Tasks Group which is meant only for the sharing of achievement tasks for easy verification by the admins
- We have the Steemit Links Group which is meant for the sharing of post links. In this group, we have a basic rule of upvoting and commenting on at least two posts before you share your post link. Through this, we are promoting support and engagement among Cameroonian steemians.
Plans and Updates
We often post plans and updates of our community using our community account on a weekly basis. We make sure that we provide reports of the different activities such as contests, the SP Achievement Pledge Program, the Power Up Challenge, the 100K SP Shares Project and the Cameroon Steemit Njangi immediately after the reports are due.
All our community activities are reported using the community account, @steem-cameroon.
We have an SP Target roadmap for our community wherein we want to hit 100K SP in two years. This explains why we started the Cameroon Steemit Njangi and 100K SP Shares Program: https://steemit.com/hive-195150/@steem-cameroon/cameroon-steemit-njangi-and-shares-program-weekly-report-sunday-17-october-2021
We even went further and pledged to hit 50K SP by December 2021 and you can read our pledge and plan here; https://steemit.com/hive-195150/@steem-cameroon/steem-cameroon-pledges-to-hit-50k-sp-by-december-31-2021-or-the-sp-achievement-pledge-program
We are currently working on starting the following project;
- Dormant Steemians Reawakening Project: A project aimed at finding, mentoring and reawakening dormant Cameroonian steemians.
- Steem Cameroon Newbies Mentorship Program: A project aimed at pairing active Cameroonian Steemians who are advanced or have completed the Steemit Achievement Program with Newbies for them to mentor and support them to complete the Steemit Achievement Program against juicy rewards.
- Steem Cameroon Upvotes and Comments Challenge to be coordinated by @majerius: A project aimed at rewarding Cameroonian steemians who are upvoting and commenting on posts.
- Steem Cameroon Charity Program:So far, we've been able to raise funds to support two Cameroonian Steemians; @metugejacy20 and @stephankhoti. @metugejacy's mum was critically sick when she asked for support from the community and response was amazing. You can read here story here: https://steemit.com/hive-195150/@metugejacy20/my-appreciation-to-the-steem-cameroon-community
Meanwhile @stephankhoti's sister had a ghastly motor accident and we immediately put our heads, hearts and steem wallets to support him as you can read here: https://steemit.com/hive-195150/@thegreens/emergency-health-fundraising-update-for-stephankhoti-s-sister-who-was-involved-in-a-ghastly-accident
These two charity projects have inspired us to start working on Steem Cameroon Charity Program. We believe we can use the power of Steem to change the lives of millions of Cameroonians out there.
We joined Dance for Development to Commemorate the International Day of the Girl Child during which we raised awareness to over 50 Cameroonians about Steemit.
We also supported and joined @peacemakers to raise awareness about Steemit during the Folklight Fashion Show as you can read here: https://steemit.com/hive-195150/@fombae/present-at-folklight-fashion-event
We have also been actively promoting Steemit in our community via football, radio, posters, flyers, and Steemit training as you can see in some of the images below;
Within Steem, we are promoting our community via amazing contests organized strictly for members of our community, via active blogging as well as via our Delegations Reward Program that offers the best rewards to delegators. We recently relaunched the Cameroon Steemit Program.
The Cameroon Steemit Program
The Cameroon Steemit Steemit Program aims at raising awareness about Steemit as well as recruiting and retaining Cameroonians to the Steem blockchain.
The principal goal of the program is to raise awareness about Steemit to over one million Cameroonians as well as recruit, reward and retain over 250 Cameroonians to Steemit before December 2021 as you can read here: https://steemit.com/hive-195150/@steem-cameroon/cameroon-steemit-program-recruit-reward-and-retain
So far, the program has already kick-started the following projects;

Our first Steemit Training after the launching of the Cameroon Steemit Program took place on the 21/08/2021. it's report Read More published by @fombae
The 100K SP Shares Program and Cameroon Steemit Njangi
In a bid to build a self-reliant account, we launched the 100K SP Shares Program which is powered by the Cameroon Steemit Njangi, a socio-economic initiative that pumps in 104SBD monthly for the community account power-up.
The Cameroon Steemit 100K SP Shares Program has 100 Shares of 1000SP each which have been given out to Cameroonian Steemians to pay for a maximum duration of 2 years.
56 shares have so far been given out to 25 Cameroonian Steemians via the Cameroon Steemit Njangi. 44 more shares will be sold in the months ahead.
By May 2022, these 25 Shareholders are expected to have raised the SP of @steem-cameroon by 28K Steem, and by May 2023, they are expected to have injected 56K SP into @steem-cameroon.
Besides the 100K SP Shares Program which is powered by the Cameroon Steemit Njangi, we are also powering up our account via delegations and giving our delegators juicy rewards of 01 Steem per 100 SP delegated per month as you can read here; https://steemit.com/hive-195150/@steem-cameroon/steem-cameroon-delegations-reward-program
We hope to review and encourage our members to delegate at least 50K SP by December 2021 so that we can achieve our 50K SP Pledge target as you can read here: https://steemit.com/hive-195150/@steem-cameroon/steem-cameroon-pledges-to-hit-50k-sp-by-december-31-2021-or-the-sp-achievement-pledge-program
Our recent Delegations Review, Recommendations and Rewards targets to move our account delegated SP to at least 30K Steem as you can read here: https://steemit.com/hive-195150/@steem-cameroon/steem-cameroon-delegations-review-recommendations-and-rewards-report-001-or-steem-cameroon-moves-to-28k-sp
