JEK DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION (JEKDEF)
JEKDEF is a non-profit organisation established in September 2005 as a result of passion for developing a Plan of Action with regards to the numerous crises that affect the general public of Cameroon in the Buea region. High rates of unemployment, social disintegration poverty and sufferings amongst the youths and some families. It is very common to see our youths, school leavers and graduates on the street taking parts in activities such as crime and prostitution, just to escape from poverty and stress. Therefore, the project is created first of all, to educate, establish, contribute and encourage the development of the underprivileged poor and disabled in Cameroon in particular and the world at large.
Economic Growth in Cameroon is not reflected in the private sector. Unemployment remains a major problem and poverty is rife. People can no longer depend on the government for employment. There is the need to empower girls, youth and women in general with the skills and knowledge necessary to carryout their own activities in a sustainable way. Only in this why can we realize poverty alleviation.
To combat poverty, environmental degradation and to mobilize energies and resources to sustain self- sufficiency through education in the bid to ameliorate the living condition of the poor and rural underprivileged, the disabled and /or handicapped. Therefore, the Association is created first of all, to educate, establish, contribute and encourage the development of the underprivileged poor and disabled in Cameroon in particular and the world at large.
Our mission focuses on the improvement of the quality of lives of the community poor, underprivileged, unemployed, disable, youth, women and the handicap etc… by making resources available and accessible to build their capacity and make them productive and self-reliant that will enable them to better address their environmental issues. through ITC Training Programmes.
