Summary

NDES is building a facility to promote the development of underserved children from the neglected rural communities of Cameroon. The facility will provide a safe haven for up to 300 children and youths a year, offering workshops in vocational skills, counseling, and sport. With some basic training in a marketable trade, increased self-confidence, and a network of support behind them, these children will be able to build economically secure futures for themselves and their families.

Challenge

In 2020, UNICEF reported that the SW and NW regions of Cameroon had been disproportionately affected by conflict and poverty with many children left without any form of education or means of finding future employment. Most are suffering mental trauma from the war and all are at risk of exploitation. Few also have robust family or community support structures in place to give them the emotional and financial security that they need - a gap NDES aims to bridge.

Solution

NDES is building a 5000 sq m Vocational Training and Sports Center on a 2 hectare site. Workshops in sewing, plumbing, electricity, IT, carpentry and construction will be delivered in dedicated classrooms with a football pitch and basketball court supporting the delivery of a sports program. Private rooms will support sessions providing trauma support, counselling and skills for life. The Center will be sustainable with power from solar panels and water from a solar-powered borehole.

Long-Term Impact

The Center has been designed to support up to 300 children and youths per year. The workshops will arm the children and youths with practical skills that will help them secure work in the organised labour market so that they can generate a regular means of income for themselves and their families. Those struggling with trauma will receive the necessary help they need and the sports program will help those participating build confidence along with skills in communication and responsibility.
