Battering of women in rural households is one among the many violent and un-dignifying experiences that women face in conjugal life. Most often, this is done in front of the kids who either join their mother to cry, hate their fathers or develop disrespect for their mothers whom ‘daddy’ beats  like he does to them (the kids) too.  Despite these, the law criminalizing the battering of women in Cameroon to say the least is very poorly enforced especially in rural settings where cases of violence are treated by traditional leaders. Such violence further nurtures fear in young girls keeping them at the voiceless corner when it comes to participation. It is also very traumatizing as kids and teachers have reported significant repercussions on the academic performance of children in school who experience this. At RuWCED, we are raising awareness on these repercussions, doing advocacy and networking to help end these form of violence.




pictureBWe work to empower local communities on issues of land use, food security and environmental conservation. We also network with government agencies and INGOs, to provide the needed training and possible market opportunities. Hunger is becoming a very pertinent issue to food security in rural areas with some widows from matrilineal succession are suffering the most. To help them start a new life after the death of their husbands and also secure their family food needs, we rent farm land and or provide seeds. The situation is worst for women in the forest regions (‘pygmies’).


Civic Engagement and Local Accountability

We promote citizen's participation in democratic governance in Cameroon by enabling women/girls and youths to take part in elections, as well as demand political accountability from their local leaders on their campaign promises.
