In Cameroon women are ostracized and still have a domestic role in the society. Many forced marriages are organized every year and early pregnancy is very frequent, mostly within families living in precarious situations. This situation forces women to drop out of school very early, and it’s for this reason that LifeTime Projects chose to create a literacy education project.
LifeTime Projects works with the Cameroonian association Femmes d’Atta by conducting sessions, training courses and individual follow-up meetings in favor of the personal and professional emancipation of 30 women who benefit from this project.
During the mission, volunteers will participate in literacy teaching sessions for these women aged between 16 to 30 who couldn’t go to school or have very little education.
These sessions will really help women from Atta in the creation of their businesses and the development of their personal and professional independence. Moreover, individual follow-ups have been set up to guide these women through the process. Thanks to new knowledge and information, women from Atta will be able to understand the importance of education and thus mobilize themselves to keep their daughters in school.
As a volunteer, you will teach basics in French to women from the village with an adapted pedagogic tool at your disposal. You really need to be as open-minded and patient as possible, but also be able to adapt to different situations. Through this mission, you will help these women to become independent in both their professional and personal lives by giving them necessary tools to succeed.
