train 15 social-disadvantaged girls and women between 14 and 40 years of age in
the Bafut Community in agro-pastoral activity and empower them to be able to
generate their own income. The goal is to enable them to become financially
independent and place them in the position in which they can cater for themselves
and for their children.

The project is being funded by AWE e.V. and the German Ministry of Foreign Aid
(BMZ) via its auxiliary Schmitz-Stiftungen, and implemented by Community-Based
NGO, Higher Glory Society (HIGLOS).
In this project 15 social-disadvantaged girls and women are being trained in piggery,
poultry, and watermelon farming. These women receive theoretical and practical
lessons. They are also being trained in marketing, accounting, and business

them in setting up agro-pastoral activities.

The Trainees are accompanied by experts from the construction of their farms to the
marketing of their animals and products. The Trainees are provided with tools,

equipment that are needed ensure the successful implementation of the project.
It is expected that upon completion of the training program, the Trainees have their
own watermelon farms, pig farms, and poultry. They have acquired skills and are in
the position to breed animals and produce watermelon for sale. It is also expected
that after nine months the Trainees will continue to apply the skills, they acquired
during the Training Program and that they increase their production, market their
products, earn money and are able to cater for themselves and for their children.
