Palm Oil for the families of Mbosha

Hi, my name is Laurel Chor and I am a summer intern for GlobalGiving. I am visiting all of the projects in Cameroon, and here is what I learned on my visit to this project:

Self-Reliance Promoters' NGO (SEREP) is working with a women's group in Mbosha village to get their palm oil project off the ground. The project is not currently underway as funding has run out--GlobalGiving donors like YOU are SEREP's only source of funding. We were lucky to be able to visit their remote village: it took a long, bumpy ride through muddy trails and big, green hills to get there. We traveled all this way to meet the women who, determined to meet the needs they saw within their community, decided to form a women's group. With the help of Self-Reliance Promoters' NGO (SEREP), they set out to get things done. The village has no electricity or running water. But yet with SEREP's assistance and GlobalGiving funding, two women from the group run a health center that has already helped give birth to over 70 babies since its creation in 2005. The palm oil project would consist of purchasing palm oil for both these women's families' consumption and for re-sale to generate some income. I can assure you that palm oil is an absolutely vital part of the Cameroonian diet. It is found in virtually every single traditional dish, and as one Cameroonian friend put it, "if it is not made with palm oil, then a Cameroonian will not eat it."
