Many villages in Cameroon that are close to the border with Nigeria, for example in the Mayo-Tsanaga region, are frequently affected by Boko Haram attacks. Countless families have lost their relatives, property or homes. Thousands of women, men and children have been traumatized and victims of abuse and violence. Training the women in sewing will give them an opportunity for their own income generation to live an independent life. Sewing is one of the most profitable activities in the region. A woman who has mastered this craft can support herself and her family by making clothes, household linen and decorative items.
