Arena of liberty Orphanage in Cameroon  is a non-governmental institution (NGO) for orphans and handicapped children in west African Cameroon. The Orphanage is situated near the provincial capital Buea in the English speaking south-west-province of the country, lying at the slopes of the 4070 m high Mount Cameroon. Besides, Buea was, because of it`s healthy climate, the seat of the colonial administration in the German colony Cameroon up to the First World War.
 Arena of liberty was founded in 1995  by private persons and is a government-recognized institution, in which 85 girls and boys in the ages between a few weeks and up to 20 years live today ( September 2008).  Liberty of Arena  has it`s own primary school in which the children are educated. The older children visit a public secondary school outside the orphanage. At the end of their school education the young people have to learn a trade to enable them to stand on their own two legs before they are allowed to leave liberty of Arena.

Because of lack of space about 10 to 12 children sleep in double beds. The food for the orphans is cooked on an open fire in a large wooden structure. At the moment a new building containing a kitchen and canteen is under construction. Further there is a small building, apart from the others, with toilets and washing facilities for the whole orphanage. Every Sunday a church service is conducted in one of the classrooms.
Arena of liberty is in fact a governmental recognized orphanage, but does not receive any support from public institutions. The orphanage is living from donations in form of goods or money from private persons, church organizations and national and international companies operating in Cameroon. A part of the necessary daily food is coming from their own sources. All the other daily necessities of life like cooking oil, salt, sugar, milk powder for the small children, soap, washing powder and so on must be bought. Also there are other costs like the salaries for the teachers and workers, school fees and school uniforms for all school children, clothes, costs for doctors and hospitals, electricity and water and a lot more.
