A Look at Goodness and Mercy Missions From 2007
Helping Women Make Independent Financial Decisions in Cameroon Goodness and Mercy Missions' Video.
Since the foundation of Goodness and Mercy Missions in 2014, its programs towards a sustainable livelihood for the underprivileged in the communities have been expanding. Below is a list of Goodness and Mercy Missions past interventions and current programs.
1. Child Sponsorship Program: Since 2007, more than 3000 children have been helped by this program in the areas of education, health and nutrition. This number excludes those we have helped indirectly by empowering their mothers economically. We have also connected some of these children to sponsors around the world. The sponsors are in Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa and in the Americas. See what it takes to sponsor a child http://goodnessmercymission.wordpress.com/2012/01/30/sponsor-a-child-for-only-10-a-month/.
Profiles of underprivileged are made weekly. We are ever in the lookout for sponsors to choose a child or children. People have also donated lump sums to handle the situation of a number of children for a year or two.
Sustainable Programs for the Child Sponsorship: Some time ago Catalyst Exhibits, Designing Company in USA and Bekins Van Lines Company, a moving company in USA donated motor bikes that serve as taxi business. They have been generating income daily and sustaining the education of underprivileged children at an elementary school at the village of Jinkfuin. The first year helped 33 children and the following years have seen an increase of more than 96 children yearly. See Jinkfuin school http://www.nabuur.com/en/village/jinkfuin. Our plans are to add more motor bikes to sustain the child sponsorship program. Children who do not yet have sponsors will receive help also. A motor Bike with the documents costs about 1035 USD. We are also working toward other income generating projects to sustain the child sponsorship program.
2. Women Economic Empowerment Project: This is another most successful program of GMM. It has benefitted close to 500 women and right now we are dealing with 35 women groups. These are groups we have already funded and helped with capacity building. They are found in several communities in Cameroon, largely in the North West Region and then in the Littoral and South West Regions. The women are involved in various income generating initiatives like retailing of palm oil, maize, beans, doing tradition dresses or producing soap, shoe polish and candles. Their raw material ranges from bee wax to weeds and fibres collected from some plants. About 827 USD can fully fund a group of about 10 women, giving it seed money as well as a revolving capital over the years. The income of the women continues to increase as they take the proceeds from the business, reinvest by loaning out to members upon monthly interest.
