Healthy Diets for Healthy Communities in Cameroon
 
This program aims to improve community health standards by addressing nutritional deficiencies. This will include theoretical and practical components, as well as access to a seed bank so that participants can grow crops rich in nutrients currently lacking in their diets. This program will be implemented in villages in and around Buea and in isolated villages in the Akwaya Subdivisions of Cameroon where malnutrition is critical. It will empower women with important nutritional knowledge. project reportread updates from the field
Empower Women, Transform a Community in Cameroon
 
This project will establish a small-scale cassava processing operation in the village of Ote, to be run and managed by the local women's group with the goal of increasing their income generating potential. Greater household income can lead to dramatic improvements in the quality of life for the women of Ote, a small village in the highly underdeveloped Akwaya region of Cameroon. Building a cassava processing center will enable the women to produce garri and sell it in local markets. project reportread updates from the field
