Empowering TIP Victims in Cameroon

In the last two months, Nascent Solutions’ vigilante teams have collaborated with women and youth groups and other community stakeholders to raise community awareness of the harmful effects of Trafficking in Persons (TIP) in the 13 target villages in Ngohketunja division of the North West Region of Cameroon. The trained vigilante organized two outreach events in each village and report that they sensitized over 1500 community members.

With a support of $500, Nascent Solutions supported Collette, one of our beneficiaries to complete the 2013-2014 academic year in the remedial program. She was able to register and sit for the national end of secondary education, Ordinary Level General Certificate of Education (GCE) examination in May 2014. The results will be released by the end of July. In the mean time, Nascent Solutions’ country Director is working with Collette to explore possible career paths that she can pursue after the GCE results are out, including opening a dress making shop. In the mean time, Collette is using the summer holidays, to continue her apprenticeship in sewing, while waiting for the GCE results.

Dieudonne, our second beneficiary has continued his apprenticeship in the mechanical shop in Bangante, which builds mills for processing corn flour, extraction of oil from palm nuts and other locally produced foods. Dieudonne mentor, Mr. Momboh reports that he is assiduous and consistent with the mandatory daily savings of 1000 CFA ($2) in their thrift and loan program. This is a percentage of the tips he receives from clients. The long-term goal is that, by the end of the two-year training (2015) Dieudonne would have saved a substantive amount, which he can use as collateral for a loan to begin his own business.

Our goal for the third quarter of 2014 is to raise $2000 to support Collette and Dieudonne, our pioneer beneficiaries, to initiate income-generating activities. We are also seeking assistance to train more vigilante members, develop sensitization materials and radio programs to expand our information and awareness campaigns to the entire Ngohketunja Division.

Acept our profound appreciation for your continuous support towards our effort to combat this horrible and inhumane practice.

Empowering TIP Victims in Cameroon

During the last two months, Nascent Solutions Inc - Cameroon Country Director visited the target region of the TIP project as well as the pioneer TIP victims in Bambalang and Bamessing. He was accompanied during this trip by Mr. Francis Akuchu, the TIP Program Coordinator.

The first site visited was Bambalang. As the tradition stipulates, we made a courtesy call at the residence of the Quarter-Head of the Mighang Neighborhood, Mr. Kasha Thomas Tabieng. He had been informed of our visit so he was waiting for us. After exchanging salutations with the Quarter Head, we drove on 2 bikes (One we hired from Ndop and the other belonging to Mr. Kasha) to Ms. Nkazi Collette Ndi’s, the TIP survival.

We found Collette in very good health and spirits. She reported that with the assistance from Nascent Solutions she had enrolled in hairdressing training, which she had been learning for over six months. At the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year, Collette felt that it would be good for her to enroll in the Remedial Evening School in Bambalang to study and write her General Certificate of Education Certificate Examination (GCE) Ordinary Level, given that she already speaks the Cameroon official languages, English and French, with relative ease. She has already paid 25,000 FCFA (about $60.00) to register for the GCE 2014 June session, and another 15,000 FCFA ($35.00) fees.

Collette's outstanding requirements for the school year include the 10,000 FCFA (about $25) she still owes, registration fee of 2,500 FCFA ($6) for the mock GCE. This examination is organized by local institutions, which have a GCE writing centre. Her daily bike ride to and from school of 1000 FCFA ($3) and about  $1 for her snacks or lunch for a total of $75 per month. Another $25 will provide Collette’s feminine and hygiene needs per month.

At Nascent, we are sincerely grateful to our donors and hope that we can all be proud of the difference that we are making in Collette’s life. We listened to her and respected her opinion when she decided to enroll into the remdial program. As we can all testify, she is liberated, she can make informed decisions that will impact her life and wellbeing.   With your continuous support we can definitely make a difference.

Thank you for your support.

Supporting Victims of TIP In Cameroon

Nascent Solutins is pleased to announce that with your continued support, Richard has started his second year of education at the Goivernment Technical Cllege in Bamessing and Collete will be completing her training in hairdressing in December 2013. While we continue to provide tuition and school supplies for Richard our next target is to raise funds to purchase equipment and other materials that will enable Collette to open a sewing workshop when she graduates in December 2013.

In The last four months, the project team has continued sensitization activities in Ngoketunjia Division, where they have reached over more than 200 women groups (about 3000 beneficiaries) with messages on human and women rights as well as strategies of preventing TIP. These messages have been  reinforced by monthly radio round table discussions.

We deeply aapologize for the delay in posting our project report.  The delay was caused by the heavy rains which severely affected our access to the internet in the last two months. We hope that the situation will be much better during the dry season.

Accept our most profound gratitude for the continuous support.

Regards,
