Empower Rural Women to Market Their Small Businesses With Me

What I'm Leading

The Rural Android (RuDroid) Women project is a Digital Empowerment project (#RuDroidWomen) aimed at putting up an infrastructure (Community Cyber Cafe) in rural communities in order to support community access to the internet. It is a project that will run for 12 months to teach the women and girls of Zangtembeng village in Momo Division of the North West Region of Cameroon on how to use a computer and their digital phones to empower themselves by marketing their farm products and small businesses and how to build an online presence for their businesses and apply for seed funds and scholarships.

Who I'm Impacting

Our goal is to train 10 rural women and girls monthly for a period of 12 months.

About Me

I have a heart to heal the world especially those around mee, who meet mee everyday with diverse problems and issues. Though I know I can't help all of them at the same time I do my best by the help of the Holy Spirit to help those whom I know when I reach out to them they will be able to Pay-It-Forward, thereby helping mee to reach out to many more via them.

My vision personally and via the help of my NGO Denis Miki FOundation is to turn the miseries people find themselves in, to their ministry of testimonies and celebrations. I don't look at the weak points but try my very best to build on the one strong point an individual has and make that person a great leader in that ability he/she has.

My Vision

I am most passionate about ending suffering by eradicating poverty in the local communities. I am strongly engaged in creating opportunities that empower youths and women financially, educationally and morally. I also engage in child welfare especially the orphaned child in my work with children in orphan homes. I also communicate on local and global issues creating a forum for the voices of children, youths and women to be heard both at the national and international levels. In the last three years I have being placed in various situations that met out to the needs of orphans and I ensured in those times that the peoples of the communities were respected, considered and heard. I was able to formulate community sensitive indicators in each program we went out on and used media streaming to get the say of these communities out to the global public via my online platform (my website) and our social media sites. Why I am strongly engaged in these activities is because being an orphan of one parent and having a handicap mother who cannot sustain the home, I had to go through a lot of challenges in educating myself, and assisting my family from a very tender age of 13. I did my first ever holiday job at that age whose pay was used to start-up a firewood business for my mum. Assisting my younger sister by mentoring her and connecting her to her capacities, and also observing that from my family our community members could copy positive things. I knew I just had to extend those principles that worked for a young girl like me to others faced with the same situation in Cameroon and the world over. Thus I started volunteering with an Association called One Humanity Charity Organisation two years ago, where I learnt how my services and ideas could be transformed to impact lives. And from the experiences learnt I then started up a NGO in memorial of my late father called Denis Miki Foundation in December 2013 with missions and goals to make leaders out of orphans, widows and vulnerable and poor people in my community.
