Stabilizing communities hosting IDPs in Cameroon


The focus of this project is to enhance the resilience of over 2,150 internally displaced persons and host families in and around Kumbo, Bui Division, to the effects of the on-going socio-political and security crisis in the two English speaking regions of Cameroon and to open up new possibilities for food security,and improved hygiene and sanitation.

The on-going armed conflict in the NW and SW Regions of Cameroon has forced over 400,000 families to be internally displaced and over 50,000 as refugees in Nigeria. Communities around Kumbo still considered as safe hides are hosting over 2,150 IDPs. Resources in these communities are overstretched, thus creating an imbalance in meeting daily demands in food supply and safe drinking water. Severe cases of malnutrition and water related complications among women and children are clearly evident.


The project shall establish a training and demonstration farm where IDPs and host families shall be trained to enhance local food production and promote small livestock management. This will ensure food security, enhance self-reliant and generate long-termed income opportunities for both the displaced persons, host families and host communities . Hygiene and sanitation shall be enhanced through the drilling of water wells to provide clean water to the population.

Long-Term Impact

By preserving the skills and productive assets that displaced people carry with them as well as developing the skills they require in a new environment through empowerment, IDPs and host communities shall be able to up-set the imbalance in resource depletion and sustain their livelihoods as well as promote economic development opportunities in their various communities of origin especially after the conflict.
