Bridgers Association Cameroon

Women & Leadership

Gender & Sports

Through sports, Bridgers sees an avenue where gender equality related aspects and factors are discussed across the board. This has been the case through hiking since June 2019, in collaboration with ADEV a Non governmental organization, we have been organizing and discussing gender equality while going long distances on to different mountains in Yaounde Cameroon.  We are very open and welcome any sponsor who is interested in sponsoring an edition of the hike. It holds once every month and on the first Saturdays of the month. These hikes bring people especially youth from diverse backgrounds, cultures and of all walks of life. However, we envisage organizing many and different sporting competitions for gender equality and leadership mentoring.

GIRLS & TECHNOLOGY

While some think that some fields of studies and work are only for men, we at Bridgers Association Cameroon, categorically challenge this school of thought. That’s why we hold firmly and support young girls and women in the field of TECHNOLOGY. Through our Advocacy Center Against Child Marriage (ACAChiMa), we harness and alorize potentials in female folks towards poverty alleviation. We instill the spirit of self determination and confidence in girls and women by encouraging hard work for sustainable development.
We are planning and sourcing funding to set up a computer Center where young girls and women especially the less privileged will be the beneficiaries of computer knowledge free of charge.
 
‘We believe that Education is power and as such, it is the first step to poverty alleviation.’

Women & Business

Bridgers is developing a Micro Financing program dope “Rotating Fund and follow up Scheme.” This program that has already benefited a number of persons, is gaining grounds and applause among youths. We give out ‘small’ amounts of money to youths after coaching and then follow up these beneficiaries to ensure that they properly execute their plans which should however be sustainable as well.
 
The youths are the back bone and pride of every society as such, they require special attention from both the government and civil society bodies alike which should complement governments actions. In our own way, we strive to get the youths busy for their self empowerment and community development at large.
 
Bridgers Association is realizing this goal by engaging some industrious youths into petite businesses and trades to make both ends meet in life. In so doing, Bridgers bridges the gap between the employed and the unemployed. This is done in line with one of our objective of promoting the concept of self reliance aimed at reducing unemployment in Cameroon. We believe that your situation as an unemployed can change if we share the responsibility of empowering ourselves. We eradicate poverty and grow together economically and otherwise.
 
Please come let’s work on this program together to alleviate poverty
