Description/achievement of initiative
Increase the capacities of 7000 people who would in-turn impact the lives of 20 million people resident in Cameroon by raising their awareness on UN Agenda 2030 Goals, provide employment and r, establish partnerships, build communities from bottom up, engage inclusive participation of women and men in development agenda, enhance democratic and human rights reforms, participate in Climate Change mitigation and to achieve the 17 UN Agenda 2030 Goals and Targets by 2030. The initiative shall liaise with development partners at home and abroad and engage in national policy issues to benefit every one in ever corner of the country.
Since October we have identified entry points into the methods of implementation and the City of Kumba as our Pilot town where all of the training and mobilisation of the working force has been done. We have develop Capacity of 250 young men and women on the UN Agenda 2030 Goals.The first point is to work with villages and group of villages directly. Identify their needs from a participatory process and prioritizing them for action. We shall be entering into Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with all villages and Councils and other stakeholders in the smooth realization of these Goals and Targets. For example, consider Goal 4, Quality Education. The first intervention will be to identify whether there are schools in the village or within the community, identify whether the schools have facilities to ease learning, teaching and study. There after identify whether there is an Association or a Union governing the administrative aspect of the schools like the Parents Teachers Association (PTA) and what partnerships could be developed with them to enhance their works in the smooth running of the schools. If the they have poor Structure and Libraries without computers, Health services, Counselors, Teachers, Canteen, Laboratories, Transport services an Auditorium, Toilets, Pipe Borne Water, we could consider providing these to them. In a situation where there is no school completely, the project will provide for a school and equip it fully. The project will further examine the relationship between the Parent Teacher and Pupil/Student and find possibilities to consolidate unison for a proper output and better results at the end of the year. Most Pupil/Students come from homes which have no lightening or reading Lamps, reading Tables, Beds to sleep and have to work all through in the morning before going to school trekking long distances. Another among other methodology is to work with the local councils. The local councils are in charge of the development of villages. And partnerships with the local councils will facilitate the various arms of the councils to be attain for example, the Sanitary team ensures that every household or group of houses have a decent Toilet and compounds are kept clean and free from Rodents and Mosquitoes. So far we have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the City Council of Kumba and are willing to bring the 17 UN Goals Agenda 203017 into reality among the city dwellers. Other methods would be through Voluntary involvement of persons and communities in achieving these goals,
