A fresh start for 100 people in Cameroon with sustainable farmingJan 2024
Jenga JumuiyaCharity Partner
Families displaced by the Civil War in Cameroon have been hit hard by the global cost of living crisis. In the villages of Bulu and Bokwaongo, most families exist on less than $1 a week. Many have no source of income at all, meaning they can’t send their kids to school and they struggle to put food on the table.
Our newest partner, Jenga Jumuiya is working in this remote region on a sustainable agriculture programme which will help 100 women and young people find their feet. Alongside local charity CENCUDER (who are providing the welly-boots on the ground) they are helping establish short-cycled vegetable and poultry farming businesses.
Families who take part will be given the works: farming tools, pest-resistant seeds, and training to help them smash through the poverty barriers. The plan is not just to feed these folk but to have a surplus to sell, ultimately curbing food scarcity and a hike in prices in the local markets. A whole community getting a fresh start thanks to our amazing community.
