POWERFUL ACTION FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE EASTERN PROVINCE OF CAMEROON KADEY (PADK)
Let us show you how to build authentic relationships in the communities.
To work with the residents of the Kadey Eastern Province of Cameroon (West Africa) to promote improved self sufficiency and health and well-being in the region.
Our community already has numerous assets and skills that are sufficient to start and sustain long term development in the region. It is therefore important to bring the community together to identify and use those assets first. We believe that all community development initiatives should always come from the residents and external partners should act in assistance only.
We take a new approach towards development that we believe will be useful for all the villages of the Kadey Eastern Province of Cameroon (West Africa) Division: Asset Based Community Development (ABCD), a powerful and proven approach that promotes development driven by the community rather than by
1. Study and better understand the villages
2. Identify priorities and motivate the communities to start small initiatives to resolve issues sustainably
3. Train 1000 local people on the ABCD approach before the end of the year 2020
4. Reinforce the capacities of women, girls and marginalized groups or minorities

FEATURED INITIATIVE: KADEY SCHOLARSHIP PROJECT
PADK is excited to announce a new partnership with Aid2Empowerment
(A2E), a US-based nonprofit, to provide direct financial assistance and ongoing social emotional support to six young women of GBHS Batouri by covering their school fees and school supplies for the academic year of 2019-20. In addition, we will train them during the year on how to start a business to take financial responsibility of themselves for the next year, and help them become more independent in the future.
Our goal this year is to aid six young women, two old members and four new members, by providing them with the mentioned scholarships and trainings. The old members of the club will serve as “big sisters” to the new members, and help their new club members shape their business education. By relying on old members to serve as mentors, we are relying on the assets of the community, its young women, to better the community itself using ABCD. We hope that the old members will further sharpen their skills, the new members will be exposed to new business techniques, and all participants will benefit from further schooling
