Fifth Report - July 2010

Friends,

Our revolving credit scheme recorded 81% recovery and we are able to expand the scheme to more beneficiaries who have already been trained. There is an increasing demand for our training sessions from Ekona, Muyuka, Tiko, Mbanga, Tole – (rural farming areas). We look forward to your continued support. Link- http://goto.gg/3643

Once more we are grateful for the wonderful support; without which this project would not have recorded the success we are recording. Thanks.

Fourth Project Report : Teen Mothers and Children in Cameroon - April 2010

Egbe Constance Egbe -Long Street Beneficiary, Buea
Egbe Constance Egbe -Long Street Beneficiary, Buea

Dear Friends, We held the second workshop on February 26 and 27, 2010, with 29 mothers in attendance. This gives us total of 59 mothers and 94 children, out of the 100 mothers and 200 children targeted, having been empowered with life skills. Twenty-five mothers and 35 children have received mutual health coverage for a year, and five mothers have received start-up capital of $100 each. “I thank SDI for their sense of direction in helping teen mothers like us…otherwise my family would have remained paupers. Now I can boast of providing for my family.” --Egbe Constance Egbe, beneficiary at Long Street, Buea. Now we have 34 mothers trained without the associate micro credit and health care and 41 more to be trained to get micro credit and health care coverage, to meet our target of 100 mothers. There are more than 64 children of teen mothers yet to get health care coverage. What is the way forward? We have decreased the child mortality rate, created businesses, supported teen mothers, and gave them voices for active participation in the socioeconomic development of their communities. What do you think about our project? How can we work together to attract wider support? Link:http://goto.gg/3643 We look forward to your continued support, without which the road to achieving our strategic intention is rough and stormy. Cheers Link:http://goto.gg/3643
