The Anglophone Crisis in Cameroon has caused thousands of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) from the NW and SW regions to settle in various capital cities across Cameroon under deplorable living conditions. This project shall in addition to training on starting up small income generating businesses, identify and distribute bags of rice and basic food necessities to 100 IDP families whose family heads are single mothers or widows living in the capital cities of Bamenda, Buea, Douala & Yaounde
The Anglophone Crisis in Cameroon has had a devastating effect on Cameroonians from the NW and SW regions especially rural inhabitants who were forced into a mass rural exodus as a result of high insecurity in country sides. The result is a massive population of IDPS living under harsh conditions in the main cities across the country. Most of these IDPs particularly women, were farmers with no other source of income or livelihood skills now struggling to feed their children in the main cities.
The project will strictly identify 100 IDP families whose family heads are single mothers or widows with many children to feed but without a regular source of income. These highly vulnerable and needy women will each be provided bags of rice, salts and cooking oil to boost the nutrition of their children. The women will equally be trained on easy to learn livelihood skills which will permit them start up small income generating businesses in the main cities.
The project will first secure a stable meal for the families of these 100 women for a minimum period of 6 months. In addition, the training given to the 100 women will give them a springboard to run small income generating businesses that will boost their income and eventually empower them economically to be financially independent and sustainable.
