Description and Impact
Key Farmers Cameroon is currently looking for a grant - writing and fund- raising manager to update a project proposal and help raise funds for the said project. The project is intended to offer vocational training to destitute/vulnerable youth such as: street children, school drop-outs, orphans, physically challenged etc.in our community to acquire skills which may enable them become self-employed. The outcome will be to establish a vocational school for less privileged children and youth for independent employment.
The work of the Grantwriting and Fundraising manager will be to:
- Help correct a drafted project proposal and fund raise
- Carry out Crowd-fundraising or contact potential donors for funding
- Train all staff of the vocational school
- Draft the school training programs together with the staff of KFC
- Assist in monitoring and evaluation of the project
Agriculture is the backbone of the economy of Cameroon but many youth are finding it difficult to have the necessary training because they cannot afford what it takes or require for admission into government run vocational institutions. This make many youth to jump into General Education which when completed, they cannot easily find jobs. This is leaving many youth unemployed.
In 2017, Key Farmers Cameroon started a pilot vocational training program for youth and many of them were excited and came for admission. The students received training in many domains such as: food production, fish farming, poultry production, mushroom farming, business management, pig production, agroforestry etc. The skills and training acquired by the students is helping them to become self-employed.
