Challenge

The Association for Protection of Women and Children’s Rights (APWCR) is based in Limbe, Cameroon. It tackles human rights abuses of women and children, including child trafficking, child labour, forced marriage, female circumcision and torture. It needs permanent staff and to raise funds, it has rented a plantain farm, which is currently worked by volunteers. The farm is 7km away, along dirt roads. Crops must be taken to market on foot, which is arduous and inefficient.

Solution

A vehicle and trailer will allow transportation of workers, equipment and equipment to the plantation and of the crops to market. It will increase crop yield and generate income for APWCR.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help more women from the Western Region of Cameroon avoid abuse. More instances of child trafficking will be investigated and better working conditions will be negotiated for child workers. Up to 10 local jobs will be created.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
