We might have been locked down for the past three weeks in Bamenda , Cameroon due to sociopolitical climate but my initiatives did not come to a halt. Yes I must admit it slowed down and delayed actions we had planned.
Economic empowerment is a must if we are talking of improved livelihood and so we must always come up with strategies to ensure continuity. I thank God for technology which ensured this continuity.
During the last one month I have been monitoring my girls with hearing impairment online to ensure they post their products for sale on Facebook and WhatsApp. We have also done some training online our forum to address challenges they have been facing. Now that the lockdown has been uplifted they will spend time doing deliveries. I have been working with all 20 girls online. It has been challenging especially as some of them had to depend on using phones belonging to other members of their household. It is our dream that these girls will be able to get their own technological devices in the nearest future.
