My name is Wirba Usmaila Tata (https://web.facebook.com/usmaila.tata). I am the founder and CEO of a non-profit organization, Mbiame New Vision Multipurpose Farming and Development Organization. (https://web.facebook.com/mbiamenewvision/) New Vision was founded in 2011 and legalized in 2013 in order to teach sustainable farming, environmental protection and natural resource management to local Cameroonians. Despite setbacks caused by conflict in West Cameroon during the past three years, New Vision has been busy rebuilding, and now seeks the means to establish a centre to continue to train and empower many Cameroonians especially the IDPs and vulnerable which is the next step in achieving its mission.Due to the socio-political unrest in the North West Region of Cameroon, Mbiame New Vision Multipurpose Farming and Development Organization has had to start up a new project site in the city of Bamenda Cameroon from where it will be able to continue its activities. There is a target to train and empower many to become self-reliant through farming skills and protection of the environment. The creation of this centre will enable various activities focused on vocational training, workshops involving tailoring, arts & crafts; cultural/community activities such as dance and music sessions. There will also be programs for children ranging from educational to recreational. Haven setup in Bamenda, New Vision has been able to meet the needs of a few persons, internally displaced families, especially children.Some kids have benefited recreational and educational activities from our volunteers. The activities have attracted many kids and youths but the center cannot host most of the activities as it lacks the necessary facilities to achieve the aim.
On behalf of New Vision, I am launching an appeal for assistance to raise funds to get a centre in the city of Bamenda and a piece of land for demonstration.
