Abongta Moncha, Empowering Women and Promoting Education (EWAPE) Project

by | Jan 16, 2017 | What Does $1000 Do?

The Pollination Project grant has given me the opportunity to experiment new ways of tackling social change problems within rural communities. It has given a new impetus to the way women economic empowerment projects are implemented within the Bafut Subdivision in the Northwest of Cameroon.

Thanks to the grant, 100 women organized in ten groups of ten members each in the Bafut community has set new boundaries and has achieved what has not been achieved by women in a short time frame. The grant has enabled me and my team to think out of the box and have founded an enabling environment, a platform named The Abongta Fund (micro-projects for social change).
