Greetings Everyone,

Your help and gift has gone a long way to change the lives of displaced women during the Civil crisis in the NW/SW Region of Cameroon.  We are so grateful and appreciative that we have such wonderful God given supporters who believes in others above self.  We are blessed to have the understanding and leadership from the women in our tribes who are willing to work hard, sacrifice in order for the young girls and women  from our villages  will have the opportunity to live in a different world filled with joy and hope and free of the Civil crisis that our country is currently under going.  With our new attitude our girls and women will learn how to create opportunities to use their skills, abilities, passions and interest in serving others and sharpening their commitment to their village/community.

Despite the fact that we are displaced girls and women from our villages/communities and way of life, we are determined to find ways that we can utilize our strengths, abilities and titles to make a differnce that would enhance the lives of our girls and women in the future when we will be able to return to our homes and villages. 

Let me emphasize by saying that we have started this journey to empower our women by collaborating with the Rotary Club in Yaounde who is under the leadership of a female and other groups locally and internatioally to successfully network and collaborate with successful women all around the world.  For example we have been attending and participating with a group in the USA in a setting called the Garden.  The Garden is made up of individuals from around the world who offers their skills, talents and resources to assist others with a need. Love thy Neighbor and lets make the World a better places for our children and future generations..

Each Thursday we log in and meet in the Garden which is located in California, USA, by Zoom.  The Garden is open from 9 until 12 and the participants who have been personally invited can log in and share ideas, information and/or resources with the group.  JRCCA was referred to this group by our sister organization in the USA, JRFIUSA.  Since we have been a part of this group we have had the opportunity and pleasure to net-work with other individuals from around the world in the areas of health care, education, food security, banking and communications. 

The above stated areas are the areas that are drastically needed for the recovery and development of our girls and women skills, abilities and talents in the NW/SW Region in Cameroon, Africa.  We have been participating in training programs with our sister organization which emphasize SMART goals and Action Steps that will help our girls and women develop skills and knowledge in the area of small business development as the Credit Union is being developed that will allow the girls and women to secure small business development loans in order for them to invest in their own small business especially in the areas of Food Security and Health Care and learn the basic concept and principal of saving and investing in real money.

Currently we are offering small business opportunities in the area of food security, multi-level marketing, health care, education and online business development training.  Some examples of business opportunities would be Pig Farming, Quail Bird Farming, Honey Bee Farming, Multi-Level Marketing for consumer and business products, Coaching and SMART Goals and Action Education and Training Program at the "JRCCA American Corner in Mbengwi", etc.

In conclusion, our future SMART goals and Action Steps will include exploring the tangible leadership benefits of Community Service for our girls and women to include creating new relationships, developing their skills and abilities in a variety of environments, with the opportunity to investigate and identify the "causes" or areas of service that one can care about most, especially in the NW/SW Regions in Cameroon, Africa.

Greetings To All Supporters And Sponsors;

During the Covid19 outbrek, the unsettled and unresolved military crisis in the NW/SW Region in Cameroon, we are pleased to announce that since our last report we have been blessed to have the former Mayor of Mbengwi to now join our team at JRCCA to serve as President of JRCCA MPC American Corner Tonekoh in META, Cameroon which is located in the NW/SW Region of Camerooon.  The former Mayor has hit the ground running by providing the anti-covid response challenge plan that enabled individuals to obtain covid19 kits and bringing with her years of administrative experience in the area of health care and government management as the Former Mayor of Mbengwi.

Our JRCCA NGO leadership team continues to collaborate with the newly elected Mayor and the City Council of Mbengwi through our now President of “JRCCA MPC American Corner and former Mayor in Tonekoh Meta to set up a branch office in Mbengwi and provide training programs for our women in 28 villages that will encourage women and girls to develop business skills and encourage females to develop small businesses as compared to the old traditional role and way of life for women in the 28 villages and neighboring communities.

Per the written draft brief proposal submitted to JRCCA's Board  of Directors by the President of the MPC is negotiating for JRCCA Branch office to be opened in Mbengwi Central Business Subdivision to train and equip women and youths in more than 28 villages and neighboring communities.

This location of the new branch office will also facilitate education ,train, and create sustainable awareness of other rights that will enable the marginalized and those discriminated against to learn new trades and provide economic activities that will allow these women to become self-sufficient and alleviate chronic poverty and disease given sufficient resources. 

This program and project when funded will include representing victims of torture and human rights abuse; Providie capital for limited start up economic enterprises; sensitizing the population about their basic freedoms and fundamental rights, including low income housing and basic health services at the JRCCA HQ in KWOJEOH  for the internally displaced, due to the Anglophone crises in the English speaking NW Region in Cameroon.

Utilizing technology and modern media to reach a wide target audience  we believe that  the development will undoubtedly improve if people are liberated from poverty, provided with basic education, health, safety, a clean and protected environment, and empowered to represent and speak for themselves alienable human rights. 

The number of women and other vulnerable groups participating in training programs on empowerment of rights, gender equality, and economic development will undoubtedly increase to a level that the "inalienable rights" of women, girls, the young and elderly will definitely be more respected and affordable.

Client developing and setting goal, to become successful in the pursue of individual small entrepreneur businesses skill, vocational training skills and experiences will be the center for New African Innovation in Sub-Sahara Africa.

Greetings:

The purpose of this report is to update our sponsors, supporters and women in 28 villages about the continuous progress that our organization is making in order to promote human rights and fundamental freedoms for the women in our villages.  It is certain that following the expected impact of this project, the number of women participating in training programs on empowerment of rights, gender equality, and economic development will increase to a level that the inalienable rights of women and girls will be more respected and affordable.  We are assisting our clients to develop and set goals to become successful in the pursue of individual small entrepreneur, businesses and skill, vocational training skills and experiences.

Currently, we are collaborating with other NGOs and international groups using access to technology to continue our work with developing classes and projects to bring awareness of the needs of women and youth, especially those from the Meta Villages , Momo Division, NW/SW Regions in Cameroon, Africa.  

With the outbreak of the Corornavirus world-wide, we believe that our women will take the lead and play a positive role in leading our people during this crisis as they have led our people doing the ongoing war against the people from the NW/SW Regions in Cameroon, Africa.  Health and Sanitation is the key to reducing the spread of this virus.

Cameroon has about 200 tribes in 10 regions.  Each tribe has distinct cultural norms that discriminate and abuse women and girls.  Moreover there is a critical absence of "rule of law" leading to rampart abuse of basic freedoms and rights of  minorities like Anglophones who are marginalized and discriminated against by the majority government in education, legal, social, economic, political, and cultural rights. Our project is necessary to correct the injustice meted out on Anglophone women and girls.

Our goal and objective is to support the protection, mitigation, and responses to human rights violations and abuse of the most vulnerable, by strengthening human rights frameworks, institutions and oversight by providing support to local, and key international, human rights organizations and institutions with particular focus on women and youth.  Strengthen the capacity of community based organizations, including faith-based associations through civic education and citizen participation to advocate for education, legal, social, economic, political, and cultural rights for women and youth.

Outcome of our efforts will be to continue to facilitate sustainable education and awareness of rights that can enable marginalized and those discriminated against to learn new trades and economic activities to become self-sufficient and alleviate chronic poverty and diseases within a year given sufficient resources as requested.  Development will improve if people are liberated and provided with basic education, health, safety, a clean and protected environment, and empowered to represent and speak for themselves which are all alienable human rights.

 Greetings to all of our supporters and donors.  In this update we can say that despite the many inconviences that we are experiencing such as  a lack of appropriate food, medical supplies and personal care items we are holding our heads high and praying that the conflict which led us to flee from our villages and homes will be over in the upcoming new year.  Despite limited supplies and resorces we are continuing to reach out and support families who have settled in our area.

Recently we were able to provide a hot meal for our displaced families for the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays.  Families were grateful for the support and the hot meal and fellowship with the support that we are getting from our supporters and donors at GG.  We cannot express the joy and happiness that was on the faces of the members as they enjoyed the hot meals and treats from our supporters.  We were all grateful and humbled to be able to participate in these events.  We are looking forward to a happy new year!

The  Manager of JRCCA legal Dept left Yaounde on12/6/19 --- to visit  Mbengwi the Capital of Momo North West Region (NWR) on the 6th December 2019 on a private visit to meet with and discuss with all JRCCA Zonal Directors and our Lord Mayor of Mbengwi with regards to our Memorandum of Understanding with the City Council of Mbengwi that will result in the creation of jobs and Employment for our Youths, families, villages and neighboring communities suffering in the regions. 

Hopefully, we will be able to have something in place when it is safe for us to return to our homes and villages in the NW Region--MeETA--in Cameroon, Africa.  Despite being a risky venture, he was able to travel to Mbengwi and meet with the Mayor who provided him with a car and driver.

He had a successful meeting  with the Lord Mayor of Mbengwi and she was very helpful in providing us with the official number of villages and Zones that make up the Meta Tribe which is amongst the 280 tribes in Cameroon with the map where each village is located.  Amongst our discussions, we outlined all the Four Zones and the villages that represents each Zones in the Meta Tribe in Cameroon, Africa. 

Dispite the fact that many families in these areas have been displaced because of the on going conflict, the needs of the families who have remained in the area is great.  The greatest need is in the area of personal care such as food and medical supplies.  The main purpose of the visit was to try and establish a communication network with the villages so that we could coordinate the needs and provide support from our current headquarters. 

The Meta Zonal structure is as Follows:

 Zone 1

TAAH which is made up of

  1. Zang Tabi Villages
  2. Toneku Villages

My meeting with the lord mayor of city council Mbengwi, we discussed on the villages that constituted each of the four zones as found on the attachment below. Lord Mayor made a Telephone call with the GC chairman requested him to give me names of and phone numbers of Zonal directors. General Counsel Chairman (GCC) told us he appointed some time ago and he said he will get back to me and still waiting. It was difficult for me to hold meetings to complete my agenda for the following reasons:

1)    Communication difficulty, no network, no electricity and Radio program was not possible.

2)     Still waiting on plan and budget from each zone.

3)    Plans on JRCCA Internship Program for the 2020  working in collaboration with JRCCA Executive Director

4)    Request action plan and budget from Director of Construction and Maintence by 31st December 2019

5)     In conclusion much thanks to the Lord Mayor of city council Mbengwi who assisted me with a car and a driver for the few transactions made in Mbengwi. On the field l noticed a lot of in security in all over, in Mbengwi, Bome, Njindom, Ngyen-Mbo and Bamenda as there was still gun shots. I therefore quickly returned back to Yaounde on the 18th December 2019 thanking God for his grace and safe Journey.

Despite the fact that we have been on the run from our villages in the North West Region in Cameroon, we have not allowed this challenge  from preventing us from continuing our mission which is aimed at providing a lifelong sustainable opportunity to all women and girls in different facets of life within the nation of Cameroon. We continue to focus on our goals, objectives and mission to develop our women and girls to become all that they can become in life.

We are very grateful for the support that we have received to include room and board and some basic needs such as medical supplies, etc., however, the need is great and we are in need of upgrades to our current situation.

While we have been on the run, we have continued our weekly education and training session to enhance our skills in preparation for developing self-reliant communities and villages by partnering with philanthropic organization and institutions which provides reliable training environments and tools that guarantees growth and change from the kitchen to ownership of our own business and working skill jobs in education, health facilities and business environment such as banks.

We were able to obtain a piece of proprety in our new home environment and we cleared this land of brush in order to begin laying the foundation for constructing low income houses for for displaced families from the NW and SW areas in Cameroon, Africa.  Upon the completion of this project we hope to have space for our organizational headquarters, emergency care center, computer center that will house our school program so that our students who have not been in school for the past four years will again be able to continue their education in a modern educational learning environment. 

We pride ourselves in engaging in humanitarian projects which will benefit people from the rural environments in Cameroon to the Urban centers that will provide educational as well as recreational development projects that will contribute to the wholesome development of our youths, especially our girls.

Cameroon started a national dialogue Monday, September 30, 2019 in an effort to solve the separatist conflict that has killed thousands in the country's English-speaking region (NW/SW) in the past two years. Cameroon President Paul Biya announced the dialogue earlier in September when he called on all separaratist in the South East and North East English-speaking regions to surrender and be forgiven.  More than 500,000 people were forced from their homes due to the violence.
