Goals (SDGs) by 2030. She is a volunteer and she thinks this is the best place for her to practice

The journey with Bridgers has been a very
fulfilling and enriching one as she has had the chance to think creatively and innovatively in
bringing change in the society. Under Bridgers Association, she has had the opportunity to write a
project titled “the Soa Ginger project” in which she wrote about empowering young single
mothers on the cultivation and marketing of ginger and ginger products in Cameroon which will
go a long way to give them financial independence, reduce poverty and increase the livelihoods of their families at the end of the project. By so doing we are moving towards achieving the SDGs in our own way.
