We have marked out three projects to start with as soon as we find the resources and partners.
- Open a Shelter for victims of Domestic Abuse and Gender Based Violence; as well as for victims and survivors of rape and sexual abuse. The shelter will have in person and out person facilities;
- Open a mental health care support center in the city of Douala Cameroon. In the city of Douala Cameroon which is the economic capital of Cameroon, for a population of over 2.5 millions, there is only one psychiatric ward in the main public reference hospital. There are a few other private neuro-psychiatric centers, but no mental health care support centre. Having worked for 2 months at the psychiatric ward mentioned, and witnessed 1st hand the challenges on the ground with only one resident psychiatrist and no psychologist, our founder who holds both a diploma in psychology and in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, wishes to dedicate her services to such a center where people abused and battered by life and now living with/and or affected by a mental illness or mental health challenge can come for support care services;
- Run an anti-rape and sexual abuse campaign in Cameroon with primary target beneficiaries being children of school going age and young adolescents as well as their parents and caretakers.
There is a project we are currently submitting a proposal for pursuant to a grants offer, and below is a summary:
Mental Health Sensitization and Advocacy (MHSA): IDPs in Bonaberi, Douala, Cameroon
This is a sensitization and advocacy project whose aim is to mitigate the effects of violence and civil unrest on the mental health of those affected. This project will fulfill the dual objectives of both reducing social stigma towards mental health challenges within communities hosting large numbers of internally displaced persons, as well as advocating for the human rights of all Cameroonians struggling with mental health issues. We hope to start a nationwide movement of acceptance that will help us identify the mental health challenges various groups struggle with as well as create the societal infrastructure we need in order to address these issues.
