Training program for widow farmers

A two day training program (8-9th October 2012) carried by Nest of Hope Cameroon for widow farmers in pig rearing in the Fako District.  The main aim of this training program is to train some wVocational training centreomen on pig farming, marketing, business and farm record keeping and group dynamics. The beneficiaries are widows living in Ikata or came to settle in Ikata after losing their while in another part of the South West with the intention of carrying out farming and petty trading to take care of their orphans.

Cameroon, in the hope to fight against extreme poverty and hunger has put the agro pastoral sector in the first place in its priority list and in its development strategies.  At farmBut despite this, Cameroon is unable to encourage agricultural activities since Agriculture is considered a sentimental and cultural activity solely for rural people or a secondary activity. Those involved in practicing agriculture face many difficulties like lack of capital, land to cultivate and most especially lack of trainings. Due to these setbacks, farmers and women especially often yield less from their produce. In the agro pastoral sector, pig rearing is one of the most profitable and accessible sectors and adapted more to a local reality.

Small-scale pig farming plays an important role in the livelihood of many families in the developing world. In Cameroon and the Fako District in particular, most pigs are of exotic breeds and their crosses, and are concentrated mainly around Fako District and its environs. These areas have the advantage of favourable cliTraining with pigsmate perhaps conducive for intensive pig farming and farmers have easy access to markets. Local pig farming is a form of pig production system quite popular in southwestern region of Cameroon. In these settings, families keep an average of 1 to 2 indigenous pigs, these pigs are usually tethered or allowed to scavenge on their own. One of the animals that you are likely going to see when you enter these homesteads is a tethered or a roaming pig plus a few scavenging chicken. Pigs require minimal inputs in terms of family labour and feeding, perhaps an important motivation for farmers to raise pigs. Allowing pigs to roam freely is illegal and against the laws of Cameroon, however, farmers in study villages have continued to engage in local pig farming despite the governments call to confine pigs.

Nest of Hope school offices

In Nest of Hopes’ endeavor to improve the lives of orphans infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS in the community, we have continued to partner with local schools to secure scholarships that enable orphans to obtain an education. An additional 20 orphans have been enrolled in this implementation year, bringing the total number of orphans under Nest of Hope’s  orphan sponsorship project to 50.

We have also provided school uniforms and scholastic materials to each of the orphans under this project.

While Nest of Hope is unable to fund the education of all the orphans in our community, we have recently started a small program where individuals (from the community and internationally) can help us sponsor orphans. Under this arrangement, 8 orphans have been fully sponsored: 6 are in nursery and primary, while two have just started their first year at secondary level of education.Nest of Hope games

Education

“Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world” says Nelson Mandela. Education in Cameroon is among the best in Africa. Yet in Cameroon, only 0.4% of children from the poorest households attend school, and those who begin school often drop out after a few years because their families cannot afford to pay for their school-related needs.

The school Program

The program currently covers nineteen schools in the Fako district area, fifteen Primary and four Secondary schools. This is made possible by a team of volunteers and teachers. And this first phase of our HIV/AIDS Outreach program has been possible with the help of IREPS "Education and Health Promotion Regional Instance" and support of Laurie Centre d'EspoirCallejon of IREP 49 and Emilie Chasles of CCI of Maine et Loire. Nest of Hope received, a box containing no less than 200 copies of each 5 booklets or brochures, flyers related to HIV issues, more or less 30 posters, 200 condoms and 20 bilingual booklets on health care and its legal claimants related to the problems of HIV. This was used to sensitize and educate school children on preventive methods, care and treatment of HIV/AIDS.
