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.
