Challenge

The inability of survivors in Cameroon to break loose from the shackles of trafficking and earn a sustainable living is the reason for continuous vulnerability and secondary trafficking. Even when they acquire vocational skills, limited entrepreneurial skills & startup capital prohibits them from effectively using acquired skills for economic independence. The problem is further compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic that disproportionately affects informal workers especially women and children.

Solution

FollowCare builds on our vocational rehabilitation scheme to support program participants to develop and grow personal businesses. It shall operate an interest free revolving loan scheme to provide start-up capital to participants a revolving interest free with the ability to live sustainable lives through business mentorship. Our vision is to transform 250 survivors into micro-entrepreneurs within five years. It shall also engage them on counter trafficking awareness creation.

Long-Term Impact

The project seeks to zero down the number of survivors embracing survival sex work and/or falling for secondary trafficking through entrepreneurship thereby giving every survivor a sustainable livelihood. While transforming survivors into entrepreneurs it shall empower them as frontline community counter trafficking activist, breaking the silence that characterize victims and help popularize trafficking recruitment scams within prone communities using survivors life stories and experiences.
