Call for Volunteers


Douala WordCamp is set for the 15th April 2017 on a Saturday.

We do love the WordPress community that is vastly growing around the continent. Volunteers help WordCamp to run smoothly and we need volunteers for this year’s Douala WordCamp 2017 to make it great. We give priority to our members, but you don’t necessarily have to be involved with WordPress as we would also love if you come and learn one or two things as a volunteer.


Volunteers will get a free ticket to the event, a free t-shirt. One needs to be able to volunteer for at least 6 hours. Also, the exposure and the amazing experience of participating in the worlds most looked upon WordCamp event.

We need a total of 6 volunteers.
