This program is aimed at empowering 100 youths(80 women and girls,20 young boys) in Bamenda, North West Region of Cameroon between ages of 18 to 27 to acquire basic skills in tailoring, carpentry, hair dressing ,motor mechanics ,shoe making, beads so as to take them off the streets and reduce youth unemployment.
The effect of the socio-political crisis in the English speaking region of Cameroon has left close to 5000 youths displaced and about 3000 killed. The timid resumption of schools in the past 3 years has forced a lot of these youths to go to the streets; as a result illiteracy levels are increasing, youths are now venturing into ill practices such as kidnappings, joining separatist fighter movements as well as female prostitution all in the bids to survive the horrors of the crises
This program will assist willing youths who want to acquire a skill but have no means to afford the tuition. this will reduce the level of prostitution,kidnappings and other mall practices because these youths will have a focus and a chance to start a new page in their lives, each participant has the free will to venture into any skill of his /her choice provided it is within the budget frame per participant
The project will help 100 youth and women directly acquire practical skills which will allow them to fight poverty,and provide for their families. furthermore each trained candidate has as obligation to train 2 other candidate upon the completion of his or her own training
