From the smallest but the densest Region in Cameroon, we represent the mastermind of the Western Region of Cameroon in Ohio, En Mouvement! to unite all its Members' talents and promote its cultural diversity. We are a community of destiny that shares strong common values including ethics, efficiency, strictness, transparency and especially the love of work; a community aware of the links and the potential that come from sharing the cultural, traditional and linguistic diversity of the Region; a community in love with justice and peace, recognized by its dynamism and entrepreneurial spirit. The cohesion and originality of our community is based on sharing and unity in favor of the collective defense of our people's rights.

The Western Cameroonian Dynamic of Ohio is a non-political, secular, non-profit organization, incorporated in the State of Ohio. In fact DOCO is born on Sunday, September 03, 2017 after an agreement between a dozen people who share strong values in the image of the people from the Western Region of Cameroon. DOCO, the new baby in Ohio comes with an innovative, ambitious, and modern program that once again demonstrates in the unwavering faith and conviction of its founders by participating in the fight for a world without racism, tribalism and devoid of any other form of discrimination. It is in this spirit that DOCO meets every last week-end of the month, in order to ease the exchanges, experiences, information and arouse feeling of solidarity between its Members and their community.
Our Vision is based on the idea to bring together within DOCO all the sons and daughters of Western Cameroon living in Ohio, in the combined efforts for a better future for its Members and a world of justice.
