Vocational Training for Single Mothers and Marginalized Women 


Our partner, the Centre for Community Regeneration and Development (CCREAD-Cameroon), is a registered nonprofit with over 10 years of charitable operations across marginalized communities in Cameroon. Its primary objective is to foster the social and economic empowerment of marginalized and disadvantaged children, women, youths, and indigenous people through community-driven projects and programs. This project aims at reducing extreme suffering for marginalized women and single and teenage mothers in Mile 16 Bolifamba through practical vocational training. In Mile 16 Bolifamba, a typical slum community in Cameroon, more than 85% of households live below the UN poverty line, with extreme marginalization of women and girls. The intensive vocational training will start with two units training women in two shifts every working day. One unit will train women in practical sewing techniques and dress design to serve the general public. The other will train them in hairdressing and decoration. This will equip the women with the social and vocational skills they need and the financial means to send their children to school; it will also transfer the skills to other girls to tackle long-term poverty within the area and beyond. The primary beneficiaries of the project are a total of 348 women, including women with disabilities, widows, single mothers, and teenage mothers, 99% of whom have at least 2 children. Unemployed youths and school dropout girls are another category of primary beneficiaries. Annually renewable project
