This project aims to set up fashion shop for an internally displaced young woman who has been trained on production of shoes, bags and Jewelry in Buea, by REO. Many skilled youths have lost their valuables and business capital to fire and even abandoned in most cases. Others have acquired specific skills but have no capital to establish themselves for income generation and so resort to other negative coping mechanisms. It is hoped that through this project, Nicoline is given new hope in life
Nicoline is a seamstress who fled from Bafut, North West Region to Buea in October 2017 due to the ongoing crisis. She has not been able to send any of her 04 kids to school due to financial challenges. She sews from the house and takes them to the market occasionally as she can't afford for an industrial machine or an equipped shop. REO organized a training in December 2019 to train 10 IDPs on the production of shoes, bags and jewelry and she proved to be the best out of the 10 trainees
This micro project will upgrade and expose Nicoline a talented IDP who has acquired specific skills on bags, shoes and jewelry making and will also upgrade her living standard. Nicoline will open a fashion shop in Buea and will have the opportunity to train other young women in fashion and designing. She will be able to send her children to school, pay rents and improver her living standard in general. Cameroonians will take a step towards consuming home made products.
A talented young lady will open up her fashion shop in Buea, South West Region and this will go a long way to reduce the rate at which talented youths with specific skills go unexploited within her community and country as a whole. Nicoline will intend serve her same field. It will also reduce teenage pregnancy, HIV and young girls will take informed decisions on sex.
