The AGAM millet farm in Moutourwa
The AGAM millet farm in Moutourwa

AGAM ASSOCIATION,

Following the material support  given to Moutourwa AGAM which consisted of two donkeys and two chariots with accessories and the gift of goats and sheep for husbandry in Tokombere AJESTOK , we thought it wise to go on the field in order to evaluate and ensure the follow-up of the projet.

While in Moutourwa  on the 17/12/2016, we mate two members the treasurer and the vice president of the association. The president was absent due to the fact that he went to look for one of the missing donkeys out of two, he fortunately found two days after our visit.

Our discussion with members present provided us with information on the activities of the association during the past three months. We equally visited the farm as shown on the pictures below.

Thanks to the two donkeys the received, they were able to cultivate 1ca of dry season millet ant 1ca of beans but the latter was a failure due to the late coming of rain, as a result, they replaced the beans with sorghum 00 to avoid losing completely. The exploited donkey by the community also yielded revenue. Thus the money gotten was used to buy spraying products for their farms. The cost was evaluated at 48,800 FRS. The benefit is to be known after harvest.

Difficulties

-The difficulties the association encounters are as follows

-the invalid members cannot help in the farm activities

-some members did not take part in monthly meetings

-unwillingness of some members to participate financially

-financial inadequacy in the cash box

-no record book to register gains, loses and expenses leading to squandering

Recommendations

-the continuous use of the donkeys for product transportation

-members should continue sensitising people to join the association and ensure regular contributions

Acknowledgement

Members’ of five different associations lead by AEFA meet this week to sensitize listeners of Cameroon Radio and Television (CRTV) on the importance of CD4 test. It was during a program of thirty minutes where told focuses on the CD4 test. The program invited mrs EUKERIA, nursery as a guest.  She explained skill and processes of protecting from HIV / AIDS. According to later, the most important thing to do when infected by HIV it is to realize CD4 test in view to assure to the human being a good medical treatment. Each of the five members participating on the program gave their recent date of CD4 test and the medical drug and attention and advices giving to them by their respective doctor. Through the program, listeners understood that the test should be done each six month. Base on some testimony did by the president of a local association of PLHIV in godola village; we discover that she lives fourteen years without taking ARV because she has more than five hundred viral charge. Looking the importance of the CD4 test in the process of taking care of PLHIV, members took decision to put in place a permanent strategy of sensitization to the other PLHIV in view to make them know the real importance of CD4 test and to fights against stigmatization so that by a time we may have a common understand by a PLHIV community that long live is very possible by knowing his or her viral charge and by following the medical prescriptions.  “Don’t stay home and without doing your CD4 test, because by doing it, you will know the total viral charge of your organism which will lead for a better care and don’t be ashamed to do it” this is the sensitization message sent by Doudou to other PLHIV.

AEFA Cameroon for its part is giving more power to its associations by financing their incoming generated activity which benefits should be used for health problem. Regarding the CD4 test of this semester, AEFA will make the five members taking part of the radio phonic program do it for free.
