The project seeks to train and support 1000 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 jewellery production) as alternative income generating activities. These vulnerable youths will be trained and supported in activities of their choice within our vocational training program
The Current anglophone crisis plaguing the English-speaking regions of Cameroon have posed negative impact on the civilian population. In the mist of these crises, youths between the ages of 18 and 35 are most vulnerable to various challenges such as recruitment into armed violent groups, rape, conception of unwanted pregnancies, contraction of STDs while some are left orphans and widows.This has caused thousands of people to flee their homes for safety with no access to employment opportunities
The Project seeks to provide life-skill training and support to some 1000 (400 boys, 600 girls) internally displaced youths in computer studies, beads jewelry production, tailoring, hair dressing etc 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 create jobs for themselves and for more youths in the region. 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 created within our sustainability scheme will be able to sustain the project activities to assist more young people and to create programs that will help more underprivileged and vulnerable youths and the rest of communities.
