Business Skills Empowerment for 50 Single Mothers

by Community Agriculture and Environmental Protection Association Cameroon


CAEPA Cameroon intends to continue its empowerment programme for divorced teenage mothers with business skills trainings on book keeping, finance management and leadership. They also intend to provide these single mothers with start-up capital to run small businesses and also equip their vocational training center to accommodate more single mothers to learn catering and tailoring skills.

Girls in Balikumbat communities are victims of forced and early marriages. Due to this practice girls are forced into marriage as early as 9 years of age with nothing to offer. This leaves them frustrated, socially neglected with little education, low self-esteem and left with no skills and opportunities for personal development. Consequently these girls are trapped in the vicious cycle of ignorance, poverty and diseases.


Skills acquisition in tailoring and catering, self esteem, book keeping and finance management and provision of start-up capital will lead to women emancipation thus greater capacity to exercise their rights and improved opportunities for social and economic development.

Long-Term Impact

This project targets 50single mothers with skills that will help them rise out of poverty and provide for their families, educate their children and take care of their medical bills.
