Volunteer with Dovic Relief Cameroon

Dovic Relief Cameroon

Douale, Cameroon, Africa

The Dovic Relief Fund believes the economic empowerment of Women will reduce the poverty levels of the area.

The African tradition believes women do not have to be formally educated and go to school. As a result, women are left in a position where they are uneducated regarding different diseases they can contract, cannot economically provide for themselves of their family.

Our organization believes that through education women will be empowered.

We have a training period of about 6 months which includes health education (how to stay healthy from STDs, ebola, AIDS etc), and business education. The women are taught how to start and manage their own small business. They also receive training in how to create a certain product, for example- necklaces, footwear, local detergents, etc.

We also work with younger girls, and their families, encouraging them to support their formal education.
