COVID-19 Response: With the outbreak of this deadly virus, our team at Bridgers Association Cameroon is mobilized and providing assistance in local communities to fight and prevent the further spread of COVID-19. Your support will enable many people to benefit from our work.
Our mission is to propel women to become socio-economically viable so as to minimize all forms of violence against them. We do this through advocacy and education on gender equality, gender based violence, economic empowerment, quality education for girls, human rights, environmental education, sustainable agriculture, and health awareness. Bridgers Association Cameroon focuses on advocacy for activities that minimize violence against women and girls and to train women and girls in entrepreneurial skills for poverty alleviation.
Fighting Covid-19 in Schools:
June 1, 2020, our team was out on a Sensitization campaign against COVID-19 in Ayungha Bilingual Comprehensive High School Yaounde Cameroon. With support from Becker/Cordes Stiftung Germany, we carried out educative talks on COVID-19 with special focus on the barrier measures and donated hygiene and sanitation kits to the school administration as well hand sanitizers to the students. We drilled both teachers and students through practical demonstration on proper techniques of hand washing with soap.
