The United Nations (UN) Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
Aligned with the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, UN Women’s Second Chance Education and Vocational Learning (SCE) Programme is a solution for women who have missed out on education. Second Chance Education and vocational learning Project (SCE) is a UN Women’s Project that aims at breaking current trends and providing comprehensive solutions for marginalized women and young women who have missed out on education and who are at risk of being left behind. SCE is executed under the canopy of UN Women’s Leadership, Empowerment, Access & Protection in Crisis Response (LEAP) program that addresses immediate needs of refugees, IDPs and host communities. In this light, the implementation of SCE in Cameroon focuses on conflict affected areas. The project started in Cameroon in 2018 in the East, Admawa and Far north regions and has reached almost 12,000 men and women, providing 2500 women and girls with professional trainings (Crop farming, animal husbandry, petty trade and tailoring) and start-up kits that has enabled them become autonomous. The grandiose results recorded so far in three regions (East, Adamawa and Far North), impressed the funder and thus recommends the extension of the project in Northwest and Southwest regions that are also presently facing socio-political crisis. UNWOMEN has just concluded a partnership agreement with UNHCR for the implementation of the project in the cities of Yaoundé and Douala for urban refugees and vulnerable people including internally displaced persons on the one hand and the extension of project activities for the benefit of other target audiences in the East, Adamaoua, North and Far North regions on the other hand.
