Training program for widow farmers

A two day training program (8-9th October 2012) carried by Nest of Hope Cameroon for widow farmers in pig rearing in the Fako District.  The main aim of this training program is to train some wVocational training centreomen on pig farming, marketing, business and farm record keeping and group dynamics. The beneficiaries are widows living in Ikata or came to settle in Ikata after losing their while in another part of the South West with the intention of carrying out farming and petty trading to take care of their orphans.

Cameroon, in the hope to fight against extreme poverty and hunger has put the agro pastoral sector in the first place in its priority list and in its development strategies.  At farmBut despite this, Cameroon is unable to encourage agricultural activities since Agriculture is considered a sentimental and cultural activity solely for rural people or a secondary activity. Those involved in practicing agriculture face many difficulties like lack of capital, land to cultivate and most especially lack of trainings. Due to these setbacks, farmers and women especially often yield less from their produce. In the agro pastoral sector, pig rearing is one of the most profitable and accessible sectors and adapted more to a local reality.

Small-scale pig farming plays an important role in the livelihood of many families in the developing world. In Cameroon and the Fako District in particular, most pigs are of exotic breeds and their crosses, and are concentrated mainly around Fako District and its environs. These areas have the advantage of favourable cliTraining with pigsmate perhaps conducive for intensive pig farming and farmers have easy access to markets. Local pig farming is a form of pig production system quite popular in southwestern region of Cameroon. In these settings, families keep an average of 1 to 2 indigenous pigs, these pigs are usually tethered or allowed to scavenge on their own. One of the animals that you are likely going to see when you enter these homesteads is a tethered or a roaming pig plus a few scavenging chicken. Pigs require minimal inputs in terms of family labour and feeding, perhaps an important motivation for farmers to raise pigs. Allowing pigs to roam freely is illegal and against the laws of Cameroon, however, farmers in study villages have continued to engage in local pig farming despite the governments call to confine pigs.

Nest of Hope school offices

In Nest of Hopes’ endeavor to improve the lives of orphans infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS in the community, we have continued to partner with local schools to secure scholarships that enable orphans to obtain an education. An additional 20 orphans have been enrolled in this implementation year, bringing the total number of orphans under Nest of Hope’s  orphan sponsorship project to 50.

We have also provided school uniforms and scholastic materials to each of the orphans under this project.

While Nest of Hope is unable to fund the education of all the orphans in our community, we have recently started a small program where individuals (from the community and internationally) can help us sponsor orphans. Under this arrangement, 8 orphans have been fully sponsored: 6 are in nursery and primary, while two have just started their first year at secondary level of education.Nest of Hope games

Want to volunteer with us?

Anyone who completes assigned tasks in whole or part, from home or work, is an online volunteer. You don't need to leave your desk to help projects in Cameroon, but at the same time it is crucial that our onsite volunteers travel and spend face to face time witnessing first hand needs and requirements; just think what you might be missing on an other hand.

The volunteer will participate in the activities of Nest of Hope by providing time and skills to suit his availability. You may have skills and expertise that we need; you may have hardware and software that we lack and can very probably help stretch our resources on & offline.
