Asmae is an association that, since 1981, manufactures and/or organizes singing and animation camps, and projects in partnership with associations and local communities, and sensibilizes the youth for North-South, South-South and North-South exchange projects.

The Asmae association shares its database listing all the recycling techniques developed by several developing countries in all fields (plastic, metal, fabric, paper, glass ...). The waste pickers from Mokattam (Cairo - Egypt) have agreed to share their formidable creativity in recycling with the ASBL Asmae. While 20 years ago, the scavengers were only small to medium waste recyclers, they are gradually becoming the best recyclers of the planet. It is by trial and error that they are able to develop interesting recycling techniques.

The main purpose of its existence is both economic and environmental development. Its project "Cité PROPRE (Promotion du Recylage des Ordures plastiques et de la Récupération des Emballages)" enabled it to implement an approach of collection and recycling of plastic waste throughout the city of Yaounde. This project was supported by Mission de Coopération et d'Action Culturelle (MCAC) of the Fonds Social de Développement (FSD). Technical assistance was provided by GRET (Groupe de Reserche et d'Echanges Technologiques, France). Currently, CIPRE is extending its activities to the city of Douala.
