This project aims to provide business opportunities to 40 Internally displaced youths (IDPs) in conflict-affected communities by assisting internally displaced young men and women from Kumba and Buea to create businesses by March 2020. Thousands of youths have been left jobless, lost their property and businesses to fire and are now likely to join armed groups, have unwanted pregnancies and suffer extreme poverty.

The current civil war has limited access to capital and the job market for entrepreneurial youths of conflict-affected zones, precisely when they most need it. This is making them more vulnerable to radicalization, criminality, teenage pregnancy, and early marriage, and further endangering the economic structure of their communities. The pilot phase of this project was implemented in Kumba with a target of 50 youths through a micro loan scheme and recorded many success stories


This micro project will alleviate at least 40 Internally Displaced Young people who have been grossly affected by the current crisis out of poverty by establishing small businesses for them. They are very able to carry out small and middle size enterprises, but these were lost during military raids and displacement. They just need a helping hand to provide the initial capital.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help young displaced men and women become productive members of their community. The economic structure of their communities will be revamped and displaced persons who sought shelter in the forests will have better access to commodities, as the empowered displaced youths will bring business in these self-settled communities.
