These are Njom Ignatius, the new Microcredit and Livelihoods, Akwofue Julius as a Driver, Taku Mirabel and Achare Gladys are respectively the Agroforestry Development Assistant and Microcredit Development Assistant. The latter two will undergo a 12 month training at the ERuDeF Institute of Biodiversity and Non-profit Studies(EIBiNS) in professional development, fundraising, NGO and project management.

The induction of the newly recruits took place at the ERuDeF main office in Buea on February 7, 2014. Presiding at the induction ceremony, the Director of Administration and Human Resources, Ms Ita Nawom, urged the newly recruit to join the rest of the team in their mission of conservation. She presented the newly recruit to the rest of the staff and explained their specific areas of concern. Each of the staff did individual presentation, explaining in detail what skills they possess to use for the growth of the organization. Following their individual presentations, it was clear that the newly recruits were very enthusiastic ready to contribute enormously towards the growth of the organization. One of them said "I'm happy to have joined this team; I believe that together we are going to raise the micro finance component to the top, said Njom Ignatius. On his part, the new driver, Akwofue Julius lauded the degree of collaboration amongst ERuDeF staff. He wished the organization and it staff many more years and pledge to be collaborative.

In a chat with the newly recruited Microcredit and Livelihood Development Assistant Achare Gladys, she said "I find it very interesting to take up this new responsibility not just because it is in line with my field of studies but also given that I intend to make a career in development and finance. With a B.Sc in Economics and given that I am rounding off my Masters Program in Financial Management, Planning and Development, I think I am just a square peg in a square hole". The 25-years old said she would do her best to develop strategies that will foster the MCLD Program in ERuDeF which will also go a long way in enhancing the growth of the organization.
