This project will provide capacity development as well as psychosocial care and support for 50 internally displaced vulnerable persons in the armed conflict zones of the South West Region of Cameroon. These constitute the visually impaired, physically challenged, orphans and street children. They will be offered feeding, accommodation and medical care while being trained and empowered through skill building workshops for self-reliance and reintegration thereby building an inclusive community.
The current socio-political upheavals rocking the two English speaking regions of Cameroon has resulted in the internally displacement of many families and children; some of these poor families have abandoned persons with disability and orphans. In most cases some of these individuals have been shot as their relatives flee violence. FUHOSEA plans to accommodate and provide psychosocial care, support and training to enable these needy persons recover from their adversaries.
The project aims to accommodate, and train persons with disabilities on surviving entrepreneurial skills such as hairdressing and barbing, digital literacy, craftsmanship, tailoring and agriculture (both livestock and crop); it as well provides them with psychosocial care and support and seed funds to help establish small businesses for reintegration in to normal life activities. The seed funds combined with acquired skills will enable persons with disability to be self-reliant.
The project will help relief at least 50 poor families off the burden of taking care of persons with disabilities. The long term effect is that they will no long depend on family members for their daily survival; thus the skills they developed after undergoing training will enable them do useful entrepreneurial activities within their communities. These will improve income level for this group of persons, families and as well build inclusive community to become stronger and resilient.
