In rural communities of Cameroon, women have few skills, little education along with a high rate of pregnancy among women entering child-bearing age (12 yrs) and no means of earning a living. These women have suffered greatly because of the violence that has ravaged so much of the African continent and Cameroonian society as a whole. In most cases, they are widowed, are abandoned or violated, and are often powerless and voiceless and so, it is difficult for them to reach their full potentials.


The women will go to school to learn the trade and then use the sewing machines to make clothes to sell in the market and for their families. The money they earn goes back to pay for the education and to provide for their family and themselves.

Long-Term Impact

Those who will graduate from this program will be benefiting from taking contracts with schools by making uniform for their children as well as making clothes for sale to the general public. The result of this project/Program will help over 300 girls
