JPS Bamenda Empowers Female Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) on Bookkeeping

Posted in Facilitating Integrated Networks of Women & Youth to Defend Justice & Promote Peace in some Communities in the Archdiocese of Bamenda.

This initiative is part of JPS' early recovery program in response to the ongoing Armed Conflict in the North West & South West Regions of Cameroon.
It aimed at empowering participants, who have business ideas, with skills to keep record of the daily running of their businesses as an imperative, while also being able to track progress, and making conscious decisions to ensure they make profits.
This is to ensure that they become economically viable, support their basic needs and those of other IDPs within their households.
Facilitated by Seka kiven Arnold, Accounting Consultant, it took place on Wednesday, 22nd July 2020 Auto Data Resource Center, Big Mankon, and attended by 10 Female IDPs selected from different parts of Bamenda Town with business ideas such as crop farming, hair dressing, barbing, sale of food items, etc.
In the days ahead, accounts will be opened for each of them, and they will be supported with Start Up Capital by the Service based on the Business Plans they submitted.
While monitoring and evaluation is going on already, staff of the Service shall constantly be on the field to support these female IDPs technically to realize set objectives.
