Challenge

The Current anglophone crisis plaguing the two English speaking regions of Cameroon have posed tremendous negative impact on the civilian population of the country's north- west and south-west regions, hosting over 4 million inhabitants of the nation's population which is about 16% of the total population. In the mist of these crises, youths between the ages of 15 and 30 in conflict zones are most vulnerable to various challenges such as recruitment into armed violent groups, rape, conception of

Solution

In early 2016 the Anglophone crisis started, and waves of displaced women started arriving at the urban centers. They have gone through near-death experiences, survived in the forest for weeks or months and lost their property when they had to abandon their villages. As they arrive in the towns, they do not have any means of subsistence and survive by begging. We provide a chance to regain what was lost. 11% of our participants are currently inside an active conflict zone.

Long-Term Impact

these young people will be able to secure employment and most importantly, create jobs for themselves and for more youths in the region. While they will be able to make a decent living for themselves and their families, they will also able to create huge opportunity for others. Our economic livelihood support program (ELSP) created within our sustainability scheme hopefully will be able to sustain the project activities to assist more and more vulnerable youths and the rest of communities
