RICE Excellent Center Nkambe for Teens – RICE Excellent Center Nkambe

Date grant awarded: March 8, 2019

RICE (Rehabilitation, Inclusive, Community, Empowerment) Excellent Center Nkambe is the only facility of its kind in the northwest region of Cameroon that provides teenage mothers, children, and teenagers the opportunity to seek information on reproductive health, trainings on small-scale business, counseling services, and mentoring opportunities. This work is being coordinated by Abanda Marcel, all with the hope to address pregnancy in young mothers and hunger, HIV/AIDS, poverty, and illiteracy among youth. It is known that when youth feel equipped with the educational tools, they feel empowered to return to a formal school setting and ultimately achieve the results and change they yearn for in life.
