WEALTH
CREATION

IMPROVING LIVIHOODS.

One of the global challenges deals with the empowerment of women, which is defined as the process of achieving women’s equal access to and control over economic resources and ensuring they can use them to exert increased control over other areas of their lives. Women suffer from inequalities such as: poverty, gender-based violence, stigmatisation and discrimination, low representation in decision making, and access to education/capital. Coupled with the crisis, there is a rapid shift in gender roles as more women are increasingly gaining the head of household status while others have adopted prostitution, picking of arms as a coping mechanism as a result of the disruption of their source of livelihood. 

 

The Wealth Creation Department of Reach Out Cameroon has the main goal to improve household incomes of vulnerable women through the establishment of micro-projects, sustainable agriculture and micro-credit operations so that beneficiaries are self-reliant in their communities.  Generally, beneficiaries include: school dropout, single mothers, internally displaced women, persons living with HIV and persons living with disabilities.

Micro
Projects

The Keep A Girl Alive program has been running for the past 10 years targeting vulnerable women between the ages of 18-35. Based on a need assessment initially conducted, the department assists beneficiaries to acquired skills on income generating activities such as pastries and yogurt production, shoes, soap making, bag pack and jewelries making. 

The capacities of beneficiaries are strengthened on entrepreneurship, savings, book keeping and sexual and reproductive health rights. This is to enable them take informed decisions on their sexual life and also in cases of any forms of violence. 

It is an established fact that one of the main challenges faced by farmers and petit business owners is access to capital. Micro credit operations aim to give access to capital for women and men to expand their businesses and farming.  This is achieved through conditional cash transfers which could be loans or grants depending on the funder.

Micro Credit Operations

Sustainable Agriculture

In other to fight food insecurity and climate change, the department engages in building the capacities of grass roots farmers on sustainable agriculture.

 

Trainings are conducted on:

  • The production of organic pesticides, fungicides and bactericides

  • Land preparation and farm management.

  • Climate change resilience.

  • Harvesting and post harvest preservation techniques

Farming inputs are also donated in the form of high yield, disease resistant seeds/cuttings, hand pushed trucks, spraying cans, processing machines etc.
