Empower Girls with Income Generating Activities
 
We partner with the US Peace Corps Volunteers in our community to empower a vulnerable population of girls who are teenage mothers and living in rural poor areas. This project elevates their status and improves the condition for these underserved girls and young women in Cameroon by providing training on skills like writing a business plan and making goods to sell in the market: tofu, soy milk, and paperbead jewelry. Participants in our weekend training sessions become part of a support network. project reportread updates from the field
