In the summer of 1993, a group of Fako elements led by Mola Ngale Efange and Mola Makuna Tande began a series of in-depth discussions about the state of Fako division in general, and of the Fako Diaspora community in the United State in particular. They lamented the fact that unlike other Cameroonian communities in the US, Fako elements had never come together to discuss their collective problems or to celebrate their individual successes. It was also noted that the said community had never had a national organization in North America.
The general consensus was that creating a national Fako association in the US would be the best method for mobilizing the resources of the Fako Diaspora community for developmental and networking purposes. Unlike hundreds of similar discussions that had taken place within different segments of the Fako community over the years, the individuals behind the Summer 93 talks were determined to go beyond the rhetoric of despair and inaction of the past.
