Challenge

According to the World Bank report of 2009, Cameroon has an unemployment rate of 30% with 48% of the total population living below poverty line. Youths below the age of 30 constitute a greater percentage of these groups. Equally, there is a growing food insecurity and decreasing food self sufficiency resulting from limited farmer capacity and the aging farming population. As such they have become vulnerable to juvenile behavior such as cyber crime and prostitution in order to survive.

Solution

PFPF is empowering rural communities through trainings on modern agricultural techniques, environmental education and agricultural income generating activities. The center will train young Cameroonians to become professional farmers, facilitating their insertion, carry out innovative research, networking with other institutions, encouraging local and international volunteer programs. We intend to structure our training to help people become independent after a specified time working with us.

Long-Term Impact

By establishing a conservation and agricultural training center this project will help rural Cameroonians for generations. To address climate change, we will introduce agro-forestry techniques and plant thousands of trees. Additionally, we will teach agricultural income generating activities to help improve the lives of farmers. The project will empower 200 rural youths allowing them to be self employed and rise out of poverty, which will provide for their families' health and well-being
