Presentation: The project of Socio-Economic Insertion of vulnerable youths and promotion of the peace in the municipalities of Maroua 1, 2 and 3, (PRINSE JDP) is a project created with the aim of accompanying the said municipalities in their policy of â€śsupport to vulnerable young people with the assistance of the GIZ PAJED. Indeed, the Support Project for vulnerable youths (PAJED) of the Deutsche Gesellschaft fĂĽr Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) supports the Government of Cameroon in the socio-economic reintegration of vulnerable youths to contribute to sustainably maintain peace and inter-generational aornd interreligious coexistence, especially in the regions so badly affected by the problems of insecurity and poverty in the Far North.
In order to do so, this project relies on decentralized local and regional authorities to offer disadvantaged or vulnerable young people the opportunity to carry out income-generating activities (AGR) in agriculture and other services or to make use of their energy and knowledge in labor intensive areas (HIMO) to access income through temporary employment. The project is thus involved in raising awareness among the various social strata about the concept of living together, maintaining peace and intergenerational and interreligious dialogue.
It will be a question for JAPSSO to accompany the three above-mentioned municipalities in the employment of young people in HIMO activities for monitoring, supervision, capacity building for two months and their insertion in a socio-professional environment at the end three months of collaboration. During the HIMO phase, training will be provided to stimulate young people’s self-employment initiatives.
- 200 young people have benefited from HIMO activities (100 km of gutters, public gardens and cleaned, etc.);
- 200 young people have made micro projects on breeding, sewing, hairdressing, petty trading, etc.;
- Equipment and equipment made available to municipalities;
- Training and sensitization of young people on the promotion of peace, inter-religious and inter-generational dialogue
