Without a solution to manage her monthly period, 1 in 10 girls in Cameroon and in many countries around the world, miss 3 - 5 days of school each month due to lack of sanitary pads. As a result, the Caring4Girls Project aim at providing free sanitary pad kits and training girls and young women on how to make re-usable sanitary pads. In addition, interactive educational sessions on puberty, menstruation, personal hygiene, sexual health and STIs are also offered. Included in its program is a Diabetes campaign that have helped a lot of poor communities in Cameroon know their status.
Despite the Universal Health Coverage, poverty continues to increase Type 2 Diabetes incidence and due to inequality of care, a lot of people die of diabetes. Poverty is associated not only with higher diabetes incidence but also with inequality of diabetes care in poor communities around the world. Of the multiple strategies designed to mitigate the discrepancies in diabetes care caused by poverty, we work in promoting health literacy in diabetes and educating the population of the causes and how to prevent diabetes, as well as provide some basic care.
Health & Education 4 All International is also working on STEM mentorship. We’re currently working with WVED – Cameroon and the Council of Bamenda I to offer mentor services to positively impact the social development and academic achievement of youth ages 8 – 20. We also mentor students in Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools and we will extend to Cabarrus county school system. Finally, we offer financial assistance (Sponsorship) to needy International students attending community colleges in North Carolina and some sustainable development programs.
Today, our work and mission are more important than ever. Through the compassion of our supporters, donors and volunteers, we able to offer quality services to their most vulnerable individuals, especially women and young children. If you have the same passion and commitment to helping those in need, we will continue to provide basic education and healthcare to the less-fortunate around the world.
