About this project

What has caused this programme to happen? From 2016 to date, violence started in the two marginalised English speaking regions of Cameroon  marginalised by the 80% French speaking central government, and has resulted in displacing 765,000 persons, now living in the urban cities and other regions, with 60,000 others displaced as refugees in nine camps in the neighbouring Nigeria. Schools were closed with resulting in school dropouts of 800,000 children, age 3 to 18 years, and 4,000 dead: Re: https://www.crisisgroup.org/africa/central-africa/cameroon/250-cameroons-anglophone-crisis-crossroads
 
Relevance of project: crisis impacted Anglophone regions of Cameroon: Empowering school dropouts;’ age 10 to 25, with self-help job placement skills training, is a critical need for displaced children from farm family households. The school dropouts are aging and this project aims at creating a community institution that is user friendly to the desperate youths. This programme will empower and continue into the future to empowering young people who are resident in Bamenda city, thereby developing their physical, mental and entrepreneurial capabilities, so that they may grow to full maturity as economic independent individuals and members of society and so that their conditions of life may be improved.     
 
Beneficiaries’ involvement in proposing this project:  In response to these challenges of the time, working anticipatorily with some of the displaced 800,000 that relocated to the city of Bamenda where our projects office is located, we have proposed these programmes to come the aid of these desperate children of English speaking origin of Cameroon.
