Today I visited the delegate of kumba 2 council south west region of Cameroon Memeprecisely to get anauthorization to implementa project in our local community in which before you divorce ayoung girls you must give her a financial compensation to help start up her life ,our girls are suffering we need to put hand together and put a smile to their faces, just last week a girl was divorce by her husband because she disobey his mother is that a good reason for her to be separated fromher husbandif we dont stand firm what will happen to our sisters, children and friends, we should make sure that they are given their right to help them start up a small tradeorfurther theireducation if nothing is done our community will be fill with youngfrustruated girls, The rateat which young girls are humiliated and divorce without any compensation is alarming , the more nothing is done the more it give the young men courage to make our young girls miserable, i offer to work with the social welfare as a volunteer so as to gain backing in implanting my project what they need from me is an authorization to partner with them which seem impossible what step should I take to help wipe the tears of this girls sensitization campaign will not to enough rather the perpetrator who are the men should be purnish and justice given to us.

Hello jlanghus thanks for the concern but unfortunately I was not given the authorization, the delegate told me is not a one man fight to success I should creat an NGO which will take a long time I have a small association of divorce girls without but with no backing or financial support.

Hi there. You're welcome. Oh:-( Could the girls/women create anything (like jewelry, shoes, etc?) to generate income for your business so that you can help them and others?

Hi Mariatu,

I hope that you will find a right person to help you with your project.  And I hope also that women receive equal rights in your community. You are the best person to identify it and that is providing support for them in regards to their finances.
