BUILDING YOUTH RESILIENCE AND ENTERPRENEURSHIP TO FIGHT STIGMATIZATION AND DISCRIMINATION

BUILDING YOUTH RESILIENCE AND ENTERPRENEURSHIP TO FIGHT STIGMATIZATION AND DISCRIMINATION

 

As part of the activities to reduce stigmatization and the discrimination against done against people living with HIV/AIDS in the Far North Region of Cameroon, Education Fights AIDS (EFA) Cameroon engaged a campaign to raise awareness and identify some participants among young people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHIV).

This activity had as goal to provide a platform that could facilitate the integration of this vulnerable group of young people into the society; as well as strengthen their financial capacity by providing selected youth the opportunity to learn small trade such as motorcycle mechanics (repairs and assembly).

 

Mr. ABBA, a sociable and dynamic man in charge of training youth in motorcycle repairs and assembly expressed his impression: « I feel privileged and happy to have been given the opportunity to train these vulnerable youth in the domain of motorbike mechanics so that they can become financially autonomous and independent like myself. I accept all the youth living with HIV or AIDS because they do not have to be abandoned. » 

 

Consequently, EFA’s objective here was to fully fund the training and installation of five (5) young people living with HIV/AIDS from end-end; that is to say, pay for the training, daily feeding and at the end of the training, equip and accompany them to start up their own garages. The tools given to them would include tool boxes. This is thanks to the GlobalGiving funds.

 

A beneficiary’s testimony :


Ibrahim; « I am very happy and grateful to EFA Cameroon for their initiative, thanks to them I can become somebody in the future; because of the training in motorcycle repairs, my dream of becoming a renowned mechanic would be realized; thank you EFA. We also thank the donors GlobalGiving for offering us this rare opportunity to become responsible men; this will permit us to help our parents and facilitate our family lives ».

 

Alim,

Project Leader
