Sustain Cameroon

The project goal is to increase the self protection of 750 adolescent girls who are at-risk of early marriage living in communities in the North West.

About the Project

History:
Sustain Cameroon was stimulated by volunteering experiences in 2005 and was legalized in 2011 under the law of associations in Cameroon. The Team members were encouraged to create an association with the sole aim to provide alternatives to improving livelihoods and ending violence against children and women in Cameroon. Sustain anchors its strategy in providing direct assistance, leading key advocacy and strengthening capacities of these underprivileged to deal with obstacles to their growth in Cameroon.
Mission:
To improve on the welfare of orphans and vulnerable children, disadvantaged women and other stigmatized through enhancing access to the basic needs of health, education, food, housing, livelihoods and other components that contribute to a good material quality of life.
