I am a woman with disability who has passion in promoting the respect of rights for women and girls with disabilities. I advocate with development stakeholders and humanitarian actors to ensure gender and disability mainstreaming at all levels in all interventions. I build capacity for women and girls with disabilities to improve their confidence and self-esteem for us to work as team, joining our voices for one strong voice to enhance our inclusion and participation in community and humanitarian activities in Cameroon.
One of the ways we raise our voices is through the celebration of international days like:
1.Day of the Girl Child
2.International Day for Persons with Disabilities
3.International World AIDS Day
4.Human Rights Day
5.16 Days of Activism Against Gender based Violence
On the International Day of the Girl 2020, I trained 20 adolescents living with HIV/AIDS how disability and HIV/AIDS are intertwined. As a person with disability or one living with HIV/AIDS, you face stigma, stereotype, neglect, abandonment, etc...
As we are experiencing a humanitarian crisis in Cameroon, we are the last to think of when any assistance is coming. We do not have the priority we need and we are serve last.
I told them to be strong and build resilience with great confidence and move forward. I will always stand by the side of my vulnerable peers to ensure our rights are respected
