About the Publishing House

AfricAvenir International Foundation was created in 1985 by Prince Kum'a Ndumbe III, Professor of the Universities and founder of the aforesaid foundation. This Foundation works for African Rebirth, Development and for the International cooperation and Peace. Today it has a representation in Namibia (Windhoek), Germany (Berlin) and Austria (Vienna and Graz). You can discover the extent of its activities by visiting its Internet site www.AfricAvenir.org.

The AfricAvenir/Exchange & Dialog Editions put a space at the disposal of writers so that they can make known their literary works and also scientists who work for the African Rebirth and the alarm clock of the African people. We publish books in the Cameroonian languages, in French, English and German. These are all publications in original version without any translation of a language to another. Indeed, this originality meets the need to keep the fidelity and the authenticity of the thought expressed by the authors in their respective languages.

It is an important instrument for the transmission of the philosophy of the Foundation. It also makes it possible to the African and non-African writers to express their vision of the “common destiny of humanity”.

It goes without saying that the books thus published are of a priceless value and undeniable importance for the construction of the greater comfort of whole humanity in a context of universalisation.
