GlobalGiving wants to raise funds online to help The CTC4FP Train 1500 Providers to rebuild hope for Internally Displaced Populations.

Organization: Adele Reproductive Health Foundation-CTC4FP

Project Name: Help Train 1500 Providers to Rebuild Hope for IDPs

Project Link :

Geographical Location: Douala, Littoral Region, Cameroon

GlobalGiving in the United States of America wants to raise funds online from 27 November 2018- 31 December, 2018 to support the CTC4FP to become more effective in its work.

We need to raise $5000 from 40 donors to be able to qualify to win a permanent spot on GlobalGiving website. It’s a VERY BIG and ambitious project where policy makers, Donors, Investors and business leaders can turn for win-win solutions.

The funds will support the training of 1500 specialized reproductive health and family planning providers who will work to support Internally Displaced Populations (IDPs) from the two English speaking regions of the North/South West in Cameroon to have hopes that they are not left alone. The conflict situation in these two regions has escalated since 2016. Tens of thousands of women, girls, children, and men have been forced to abandon their homes and displaced themselves into the bushes, refugee camps and other regions for safety. So put your hands out and do what you can to truly make a positive difference in the lives of IDPs.

The CTC4FP is a flag-ship project of Adele Reproductive Health Foundation. It has as vision to train and engaged 1500 community healthcare providers to promote key maternal and child health services in 300 communities in 288 health clinics, in 60 health districts with the objective of saving a million plus lives.

Community Healthcare Providers are a first point of care for many people and are essential partners to achieving the FP2020 and other global health goals. Yet, they are often overlooked in healthcare development programs. In order to achieve the FP2020 strategy, we need to train more providers to support many more girls and women now, than ever before to access life-saving and life-changing family planning information, services, and supplies.

The CTC4FP is a project authorized by the Ministry of Public Health in 2012, but still at its pilot phase because of lack of funding.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals will not be achieved without the active and meaningful involvement of specialized reproductive health and family planning providers (G3).  The IDPs will receive counseling and support services, as well as assistance aimed at removing the barriers they face in accessing healthcare and treatment, and voluntary family planning.

Their support is crucial for  young people to  understand and increase demand for their SRHR services.

Through this project we want to build a cadre of young reproductive health providers who will help to ensure access to quality midwifery care before, during and after childbirth. The project will also support them with the tools necessary to be effective. To accomplish our work, we want to link the project to International partners and also collaborate with leading international health and development agencies and organisations and implement projects together with UN Agencies, governments, health care profession organizations, civil society, Foundations and NGOs.

Family Planning and Contraceptions (FP/C) influences all areas of global development and is crucial to sustainable and human rights-based development. FP/C has enabled societal progression by providing women with the opportunity to engage in the health, economic, professional, domestic, political, and/or academic/educational, etc., spheres that were formerly restricted to women. FP/C has numerous health benefits, including the reduction of maternal mortality rates through decreasing the number of unwanted and unsafe pregnancies. Accurately, the available information on FP for a variety of audiences – including girls, adolescents, women, health workers, men, and policy makers – is a crucial aspect of supporting FP/C programs, policies and services. FP also brings transformational benefits to women, families, communities, and countries. Investing in FP is a development “best buy” that can accelerate achievement across the 5 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) themes of People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace, and Partnership.
