Apart from serious implications on the health of the population of Donga Mantung Division in the NW region of Cameroon, COVID-19 has significantly impacted businesses and the economy with a greater toll on women.

It is within this backdrop that Hope for A Better Future (H4BF) in partnership with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and Global Aid For Africa has kick-started a project that aims to build the capacity of women to survive the crisis and pandemics via the use of Microenterprise developments as a tool to reduce gender-based violence

This has been through identification and training of representatives of women groups on how to start up and run a business while solving community issues like creating community awareness on pandemics like COVID 19, identifying and reporting cases of Gender Base violence via existing referral pathways among others.

The representatives are expected to replicate the training to their respective groups of over 300 women in 5 towns of Donga Mantung division (Nkambe, Ndu, Misaje, Nwa, and Ako).

The representatives were trained in the different towns last week on different modules by different experts on entrepreneurship, business finance management skills, microfinance, receive psychosocial support, marketing(a group to groups sales), knowledge on GBV and how to report cases of GBV and knowledge on COVID 19
