Challenge

The socio-political crises in the English speaking Regions of Cameroon that began in 2016 caused many people to be internally and externally displaced. The situation forced people to abandon their farmlands and even their harvest thus leading to food scarcity and hunger. In all of this the very poor most especially women, the elderly and persons with disabilities are the most affected. They do not have money to acquire farm inputs and buy food stuff

Solution

The project therefore aims at providing technical knowledge on vegetable (haukleberry, amaranthus, ) production, post harvest handling, marketing and joint action to address the food need of the vulnerable group of persons above mentioned.

Long-Term Impact

This group of persons that are the target for this project will be cautiously and judiciously selected (at least 80% women); equipped with sustainable and improved vegetable farming techniques for increased yields (at least 30% increase), better nutrition and increased incomes (at least 50%) and better integration and social interaction within the community (at least 70%).

Additional Documentation

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