WFAC - Cameroon involving young girls

Most war victims, and refugees, are women and children.
Most victims of domestic and sexual abuse are women.
Most of the world’s poor are women.
.Women for a Change, WFAC, is an International NGO, founded on empathy & trust. Through our global women’s network, we work together to change perceptions and promote a sustainable, caring world - transcending cultural, social, religious, political & economic barriers.

It is ashame! most young girls fail to be part of the global struggle against gender inequality, many feel that such a movement is only for elderly women, it is therefore for this reason WFAC Cameroon looks forward in launching a club on the University campus, this will enable us to sensitize the young girls/peers to be proactively involve in the struggle for gender equality,
we need the younger generation to be part of this movement, at least they will bring in fresh ideas.

many thanks

WFAC Cameroon will appreciate all contribution on how could we positively change the stereotype idea of young girls not been involved in advocating for gender equality.

WFAC-Buea first meeting

WFAC-Buea first meeting
Time: 4-6pm
Venue: Restau 4 - UB

Activities of the day:

1.opening prayer by Ruth Abanda

2.Individual introduction + motivational statement (clue about WFAC?): following the many view and opinions from the attendance; WFAC is a union of women to share their respective know-how as well as encouraging and empowering of their peers in becoming self reliance so as to alleviate girls/women poverty to an insignificant level. Again, such a union serves as a platform where young women should be able to assist each other, by teaching/learning new innovations from their fellow women. In addition, the Cameroonian young women are not proactively involve in the gender equality advocacy while the elderly women are been marginalize, hence WFAC -Buea is bridging between as she changes these stereotype attitude by urging the girls/women to sit up in order to face the challenges.

3.WFAC Buea overview / branding: WFAC Buea is establishing to promote and encourage self reliance in such a way that young women (girls) are better able to identify and meet their needs to participate more fully in society.
2 Names were propose; WFAC Buea or YWFAC Buea.
WFAC -Buea was accepted by all attendance

4.Main objective of the meeting: evaluating the degree of sensitization regarding the upcoming creation of WFAC-Buea among the young women.
Endorsing or affixing the constitution / code of ethics / memorandum as presented by WFAC international Foundation
Possible opinion in relation to the Requirement needed in registering a Club/Association on Campus

5.Suggestions: The main objective of the meeting was push forward to the 24th of October, 2009. Since almost ¾ of the attendance are still getting to know WFAC and thus will need some time to read through the documents.

6.Reactions: Each meeting should be thematic and we should have a matron, or elders who can help and guide.
Chairing of meeting sessions should be rotary.
On subsequent meetings, a fee of 100 cfa or more to be donated so as to cover cost of printing, photocopy, typing etc
