Summary

Palm oil is an integral part of Cameroonian culture. Women in rural areas find it difficult to buy as it is expensive. SEREP will ensure that women in their Women's Groups can buy oil at a fair price. Having helped these women and the nature of the project, considering the displacement, we want to finalize this project and help those that are still alive we wish to liberate them and give them the independence to continue on their one. We have given them enough capacity building.

Challenge

Many women have been widowed by the current Cameroon Anglophone crises. They need help. Food is an important part of Cameroonian culture and central in family life. Palm oil is the basic ingredient in all traditional everyday food. The price of oil fluctuates throughout the year as oil becomes scarce. Women in rural areas find it difficult to afford. They are unable to save enough money to buy the oil in large enough quantities to ensure they can buy the oil at a fair price.

Solution

SEREP will like buy the last consignment of palm oil and give as empowerment capital to beneficiaries in different villages especially those that have lost their husbands because of the current internal war in the Northwest and Southwest regions. Most the groups have been disorganized by the crises and we want to finally support the survivors and their children. If we are able to be supported, we will finalize the project and write a final report.

Long-Term Impact

Women will be given support especially within this difficult time. Women and families are healthy and will be free from malnutrition because this project goes along side nutritional education while using Palm Oil.
