Senta Nronsi – Sustainable Support Initiative for IDPs in Bamenda
In Bamenda, Cameroon, Senta Nronsi works alongside a team of volunteers to provide life skill training and support to internally displaced vulnerable people. Her project – Sustainable Support Initiative for IDPs in Bamenda – supports beneficiaries in the production, processing, and marketing of mushrooms as a tool to generate income, improve familial nutrition, and fulfill other basic needs.
This work is in response to alleviate poverty, malnutrition, and hardship among those whom have been internally displaced, particularly widows, single mothers, and young girls as a result of the crisis in the north and south west regions of the country. Senta shares that her motivation stems from her childhood, “…I lost my father at a very tender age and my mother was left alone with five children. Things were so difficult that most us had sponsor ourselves through secondary school. Based on the hardship I went through, I am move to serving the poor.”
With support from The Pollination Project, Senta and her team will provide counseling to IDPs along with training female individuals in mushroom farming and business management.
