AVAF (Association pour la Valorisation de la Femme) is a lesbian organisation founded in 2015 in Yaoundé, Cameroon. From its inception, COC supported its development, evolving from a small organisation organising cultural and sports activities, to a strong lesbian organisation, supporting other LBQ organisations and informal groups within the country. AVAF Cameroon faced many difficulties in mobilising the lesbian community, which faces specific problems due to the fact that they are women and homosexual, bisexual or trans.
