The project seeks to train and support vulnerable and underprivileged internally displaced youths in Cameroon including single teenage mothers, young widows, school dropouts, ex-convicts and Orphans in simple, low cost business start-ups (computer studies, tailoring, hair dressing, beads (jewelry production) to increase their chances of gaining employment and also provide alternative income generating activities. These vulnerable youths will be trained and supported in activities of their choice
The Current anglophone crisis plaguing the two English speaking regions of Cameroon have posed tremendous negative impact on the civilian. In the mist of these crises, youths between 15-30 in conflict zones are most vulnerable to challenges such as recruitment into armed violent groups, rape, unwanted pregnancies, contraction of STDs especially HIV/AIDS. This have made thousands flee their homes for safety in towns with limited access to employment or no capital basic livelihood.
The Project seeks to provide life-skill training and support displaced youths in computer studies, beads jewelry production, tailoring, hair dressing as alternative income generating activities. These youths will be trained and supported with start-up capital in form of equipment and finances. This will help empower them and reduce their risk of being associated with illegal activities.
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
