Secured livelihoods through education

Number: 134.1006

The Presbyterian Church in Cameroon (PCC) is involved in social areas neglected by the state, such as education, health care and combating youth unemployment. For example, the PCC runs youth centres where young people are supported in their professional and personal development. Women and men can attend literacy courses or receive help in setting up small businesses to improve their income. Mission 21 supports its partner church in these activities. In the current political conflict situation, the commitment to the civilian population is of particular importance.




- Young people are supported in their development, enabling them to build independent lives. This is done at youth centres, through training and a wide-ranging programme that emphasises initiative and personal responsibility.

- Men are supported economically through training and income generation projects. They also become aware of their social responsibility through joint activities. They can better fulfil their functions within the rapid social change in Cameroon.

- Women learn to network, share their knowledge and work together in cooperatives.

- Literacy courses and other training measures improve the economic situation of women.

- Internally displaced persons are included in the activities.

- The PCC offers opportunities for people of different ages, ethnicities and social classes to meet.
