Empowering Women In 28 Villages and Communities

By Dorine, Injoh, Celine, Loveline, Giddy and Sam | Project Leaders

Greetings  To Our Supporters and Donors;

First let us recognize and acknowledge the continuous support and donations that you have shared with our organization that have gone a long ways for our Women and Girls and Youths to have advanced in their journey to become independent and self-sufficient.   Although the State Department continue to issue safety warnings in the North West Region which is the English speaking region, we are determined to never give up hope for providing services and resources for our Women and Girls and Youths that will help them to overcome the many issues in the past which has led to their common fate.  

If change is to happen,  it must begin with us, we must continue to move onward, upward and forward despite the many challenges of lack of funds, poverty, lack of education and resources.  We must continue to strive to find ways to make things happen in our world.  For example we are continuing to look outside of our small world to the larger and bigger world to find resources that will impact what we do, why we do it and how we do it.  The vision and mission of our founder and late leader have led us to expand the concept of collaboration, partnership and joint venture concept to help us find the resources that we need in order to bring about our changes. 

As a result of our SMART GOALS and ACTION STEPS we have been able to attract to our attention leaders and volunteers who believe that their vision and mission is the same as our late Pa John who believed that if you teach my people how to fish you will be teaching them how to eat for life, especially our Women, Girls and Youth.  When our Chairman Ni Giddy stepped down from his leadership role as President of the local Rotary Club in his City, he requested from the club that he be allowed to contact other clubs to join him in his proposal an International Partnership for a Global Grant that would provide vocational training for 125 Women, Girls and Youth that represented all five zones in Cameroon, Africa, English speaking population between the ages of 18 and 36. 

A pilot project was implemented for a group of about 20 students in one of the local schools in Yaounde  to give the students the opportunity to experience vocational training in a school environment and raise a few dollars to support the Women Empowerment SMART GOALS and ACTION STEPS.  The pilot project lasted from August  1, 2023 to August 26, 2023 with a three days musical festival.   Not only did this festival attract the attention of the President of the Etoile Rotary Club in Cameroon who has agreed to serve as Host for our application for the International Global Grant but it brought to the attention of the community what our organization was involved in doing to change the lives of women in Cameroon for future generations especially in the NW Region of Cameroon.

In addition to the President of the Etoile Rotary Club in Yaounde, Camoroolkll, we were able to attract the attention of two members of the National Assembly of Cameroon who had a strong interest in our project, - members of Parliament who agreed to work with our organization and help us develop Pa John Ticha's Legacy Vocational Training and Agricultural Project for Women, Girls and Youths ages 18 to 36 from all five zones in META, the English speaking North West Region of Cameroon over the next 3 to 5 years. 

Currently, we are satifsying the basic needs for the proposal.   For example we are collecting assessment data to support the need for the proposal.  Secondly, we are defining the areas of need to include professional jobs  Third, we are identifying support  for studenrs to develop new vocational skills.   We are working with the local Foundation Committee's Chairperson  in Tyrone, GA-USA to figure out the complcated process of applying for an international grant.   Now that we have taken on this project, we have a greater need for funding as never before, especially for those students whose families have lossed all or most of their assets and property as a result of the Civil War.  No amount is too small because we have to raise matching funds in order to qualify for the International Grant.   We believe that if we ask that we will receive in behalf of the population that we have been working with to make a difference.  We shall never give up!  Onward, Upward and Forward - Never Backward - 2023 -2024!

Very Sincerely,

WE, Staff
