The project training of IDPs on Income generating activities was launched as a result of the social unrests plaguing the English speaking regions of our country. Four million people are said to have been affected by the crisis according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) Cameroon, report of the 18th of January 2019, amongst which are 437.500 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). These persons living in other towns within the Anglophone zone as well as towns such as Douala, Yaounde, Bafoussam, Dschang etc. These IDPs go through many challenges out of home such as insufficient money to buy food, pay bills (house rents, light bills etc), pay school fees for children and much more. It is also very common to find families which had 5 persons, with 10 to 15 persons now some times in very few bedrooms. There is every need to assist these IDPs by empowering them to stand on their own. The project training of IDPs on Income generating Activities aims at empowering these IDPs especially the vulnerable ones so that they can take care of themselves and provide for their needs. It is also in the spirit that offering these IDPs food will not last but teaching them how to provide food for themselves is a lasting solution. In addition, the project is open to IDPs from both Anglophone regions (even French speaking individuals in view of the fact that they were living in the zones now infested by war). The activities carried out include beading of stencils for the fabrication of slippers and sandals, crocheting of ponchos, mufflers and caps and fabrication of medicinal soap, spaghetti, mayonnaise and bergeur. Moreover, there is follow up after training to ensure that the IDPs continue to produce and sell, where necessary assist them with the needed help and the push to continue practicing their new trade so that they can make money for themselves. As of end 2020, we have trained 500 people in fours regions of the country (Dschang, Bafoussam, Limbe, Yaounde)
