Summary

The project will support 500 women and girls in Cameroon, facing financial hardship, food insecurity, stress and uncertainty which creates conditions for an increase in consequences such as abuse, sexual and gender-based violence in homes and communities and in transactional sex - which can lead to an increase in sexually transmitted infections including HIV, unintended pregnancies among adolescent girls, serious health problems and devastating emotional issues due to stigma and discrimination.

Challenge

There are 35 million girls not attending school in the world's poorest regions and there are still far too many who are not completing their education. Though poverty affects both genders, women and girls are particularly at-risk of gender-based violence. Many adolescent girls also end their education early when they don't have access to a school bathroom or sanitary napkins. Poor Medical Care and Access to Health Information causes women to suffer from illness and disease in poor communities.

Solution

1. Ensuring Universal Health Coverage for women and girls through Health Insurance 2. Provide educational assistance and scholarships to girls 3. Providing capital support for women to start a Micro-businesses 3. Provide housing support to women-led households 4. Provide meals for women-led household 5. Provide land access support for Green Farming by supporting land rents to do subsistence farming 6. Host Women and Girls Circle for our Women and Girls Empowerment and Support Networks and Clubs.

Long-Term Impact

The project will support 500 deserving women and girls yearly. This will allow them to rise out of poverty, which will provide for their families' health and well-being.
