Bring Empowerment to Cameroon

Cameroon is home to approximately 20 million people, the majority of who live on less than $1.50 per day. Due to civil unrest and political instability, our programs are needed now more than ever. The need for humanitarian intervention is vast and our work strives to bring empowerment to this region by working with rural communities in the Mountains North West region.

Our Core Programs and Their Social Impact

Womens Empowerment

Women’s Empowerment

In an effort to disable inequality, we co-created our Women’s Empowerment program which has recently expanded, and now consists of providing training and services in traditional cultural craft skills, modern small business start-up, family health services, and financial strategies. Women are now taking on greater leadership roles within their communities and are finding a sense of pride in the work they are doing. In 2018, we have given over 2050 hours of training and services to women that have enrolled in our program.

Public Libraries

Public Libraries

Our Public Library Network is the first of its kind in the region. By establishing our libraries, which are the largest in the area, we have provided the communities with access to knowledge and learning, which before was next to impossible to find. Our library system serves two purposes: to provide access to books, classes, and educated teachers, and serves as the primary location for health services. Our branch libraries are run by Himalayan Institute Cameroon (HIC) trained staff that are trained to act as both librarians and health practitioners. We currently have six libraries serving over 3,000 members.

Health Services

Health Services

With the current life expectancy rate at 54 years, we implemented health initiatives focusing on Public Health, Preventive Medicine, Family Planning, Nutritional Counseling, Maternal Health, Child Health, and Prenatal Care. This is delivered through Mobile Health Clinics, Health Education Classes, Village Branch Centers, Pharmacies, and an Herbal Demonstration Farm. We are able to deliver superior health services to even the most remote locations.

Vocational Training

Vocational Training

Our Center of Carpentry and Construction provides vocational training, school-to-job placement programs, apprenticeships, and advanced certificate courses for builders, mechanics, craftsmen, architects, and small business owners. Our center is now known throughout Kumbo and surrounding communities as a hub of quality craftsmanship and exceptional skills training.
