Professional History


Ngalim has been involved in peace and security issues since 1999 when he became a civil society activist. He joined the Peace to the City network created by the Ecumenical Service for Peace (SeP) in Cameroon in 1999 and later on he became a coalition member of the campaign on war toys, firecrackers and violent films, taking the lead in primary and secondary schools. This campaign earned the campaign the King Mohammed VI/UN Continental Youth Award in 2005. In 2004, Ngalim was a co-founder of the Cameroon Action Network on Small Arms (CANSA) which he later became the Coordinator. In the same year he was appointed the Focal Point of the International Action Network on Small Arms (IANSA) for Cameroon.

In 2008 he was invited by UNFPA to do a presentation at Columbia University, New York, USA on “youth involvement in burning African armed conflicts” in a panel discussion to celebrate UN Day and the 60th anniversary of the UN Peacekeeping Operations. In 2010 Ngalim was part of a mission to Brussels and Geneva on the Security Policy in EU and Africa, organised by the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung offices in Brussels and Geneva. That same year, he was a founder of the Central Africa Action Network on Small Arms and was elected Secretary General of the network. Ngalim has been involved in a number of research projects, published a number of articles and presented papers on the above subjects.

As a result of Ngalim’s activism, he was appointed in 2004 as the UNDP Youth Spokesperson for the Africa 2015 MDG campaign. In 2006 he was appointed by a Presidential decree as a member of the National Commission on Human Rights and Freedoms – the youngest member so far. In 2007, he was invited by the US Department of State to participate in the International Visitors Program (IVP) in five American States on youth leadership. In 2012, as a result of his work on violence against women and girls, he was appointed member of the UN Women Civil Society Advisory Group for Cameroon. In 2014, he was elected as a pioneer coordinating team member of the Global Youth Civil Society Partnership for Development Effectiveness (CPDE). Later that year, he was elected Cameroon’s representative to the African Union, Economic, social and Cultural Council (ECOSOCC).
