Ladies, greetings from MUDEC Group in Buea.

As the world evaluates the successes and challenges of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and prepares the groundwork for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), there is urgent need to localize our thinking and concretely strategize on a way forward in our region.

As elected female officials, you have a obligation and duty to positively influenced the lives of the majority of our population including women and youth who constitute more than 70% of inhabitants in the South West Region.

There are plenty of opportunities out there which you need to harness to the benefit of our womenfolk. While we absolutely must partner and collaborate with male colleagues, we need not overly depend on them!!!

The value of female elected officials will tremendously rise if these officials elaborate a practical roadmap designed to engage inclusive governance. It is in this line of thinking that MUDEC Group ( a Buea based Local Capacity Builder) is proposing to engage in building your capacities (individually and collectively).

Concretely, MUDEC proposes WOFIG Vision 2018 in the South West Region. This measurable Roadmap will include (also see the Action Plan that was elaborated during the recently organized Gender Public Squares (GPS)):

Create & Coach WOFIG in all Sub-divisions in the region.

Create & Coach Gender Committees in each council in the region.

Create & Coach WOFIG Steering Groups in Limbe and Kumba (City level).

Lobby for the Adoption of Municipal Deliberations bearing on Gender Responsive Budgeting in our municipalities.

Register / Legalize WOFIG especially the Steering Groups in Limbe & Kumba.

Open a bank Account with 03 signatories.

Elaborate Action plan 2016 to 2018:

  • Politically, Mobilize & Organize Women / Youth for elections 2018.
  • Economically, Mobilize Resources & Support Grass root Self Reliant Projects.
  • Socio-Culturally, Maintain sustained sensitization against identified negative norms on Womanhood / Girl child.

This is MUDEC’s line of thinking… What is Yours?

Can we collaborate? If so, please begin with items 1 – 6 listed above. These can be accomplished before April 5th 2015. We can tackle item 07 soonest thereafter.

Let’s put WOFIG on the Development Agenda in Cameroon.

God Bless Us All!!!!
