The humanitarian needs in NWSW is greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) was first identified in Wuhan, China, in December 2019 and has spread all over the world.
With this outbreak of COVID 19, the existing gender inequalities and vulnerabilities and risks of abuse is increasing in Cameroon; women and girls may be at higher risk of intimate partner violence and other forms of domestic violence due to heightened tensions in the household and confinement.
We build the resilience of women and their families, improve gender equality, and support the development of women’s livelihoods through achieving two main objectives,
1) Increase financial access for vulnerable women, particularly in rural areas, and
2) Improve quality of financial services, tailored to meet women’s needs.
3) Empowering women entrepreneurs with training and support to bring light, hope, and opportunity to their communities. Give them the power to earn income and mitigate the impacts of climate change.
