Industrialization was a catalyst in the evolution of social change for women. Ever since post World War I, International Women’s Day is celebrated every March, on the 8th. These days the whole of March is designated to celebrating women’s achievements and to bring awareness to supporting women in need of it. But, just because we’re nearing the end of a month long promotion of awareness, my effort to support the cause won’t end here.
In February of this year, I received the exciting news that my application to the Women’s Economic Empowerment Project for Goodness and Mercy Missions Africa (GMM) was accepted. By March, my research and brainstorming of ideas to generate economic opportunities for the project was well under way. My draft proposal of ideas is at the half way point. By the end of April I hope to present to the Founder of GMM Africa, Rev. Teh Francis, with potentially feasible processes and programs to help more women in Cameroon in the future to become financially independent; to help support their families and communities.
