eBASE, effective basic services:About us

About us

Effective Basic Services (eBASE) Africa, is a multinational collaborative research organisation with headquarters in Bamenda, Cameroon. eBASE Africa is active in implementing charity and development projects targeting women, children, people living with disability and indigenous populations. We conduct research for basic services, including Health, education, WaSH, Local Governance, Environment, and Arts. We are active across the evidence ecosystem – generation, synthesis, translation and implementation.

Our Values

Empathy, curiosity, Innovation, Evidence-based, Community Involvement.


Be the game changers for effective basic services – including health and education – through the use of best available evidence and technology in Africa.


eBASE mission is to make basic services, health and education especially, more effective through the use of best available evidence and technology within the evidence ecosystem.

In a quest to ensure sustainable interventions, eBASE implements projects along existing local health or education systems and incorporation of community participation in all projects.

We focus on Five main axis:


With a focus on maternal and child health and health system strengthening, we seek to promote global health and the sustainable development goals through projects that support the poor segments of communities in Africa.


With a focus on Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) at primary and secondary levels, we seek to empower youths with tools to improve performance and employment as well as provide evidence for best practices in education.

Water, Sanitation and Hygiene

We seek to promote access to portable water supplies in both urban and rural areas; environmental hygiene including proper waste disposal and developing knowledge on pollution within local settings.

Local Governance

Local governance cuts across our projects, particularly ensuring community participation, inclusion and voice in health, education and WaSH. This includes promoting community members to join local health management committees and dialogue structures within health systems; Parents Teachers Association in educational systems and water management committees for water projects.


Arts has been engrained in the African culture. We believe that all educational programs in Africa will benefit from an incorporation of arts.
