Yaounde-Cameroon: Minister of Social Affairs donates financial assistance of worth over 9 Million FCFA to former street children

The Minister of Social Affairs handed over financial assistance worth 9 Million FCFA to 30 former street children in Yaounde on April 7, 2016.

Activities of the Vulnerable Persons’ Integration and Socio-professional Reintegration Support Programmes were launched in Yaounde on Thursday April 7, 2016. The event saw the handing over of financial support worth 9 Million FCFA to 30 former street children by the Ministry of Social Affairs to enable them begin micro income generating projects.

Minister Pauline Irène Nguene said the socio-economic integration and reintegration of socially vulnerable people is a major priority of her ministry. She called on beneficiaries to be responsible and assured them of continuous psychosocial support from the ministry. She promised that the ministry will continue to liaise with their respective families to ensure successful social reintegration, appealing to stakeholders to support the socio economic inclusion of vulnerable people.

 

In a bid to fight juvenile delinquency, the Ministry of Social Affairs and the National Employment Fund (NEF) signed an agreement in 2006 on implementing the Vulnerable Persons’ Integration and Socio-professional Reintegration Support Programmes (PAIRPPEP).

The programme offers socially vulnerable people opportunities for direct integration, training, promotion of self-employed projects, monitoring of projects and training. The Ministry of Social Affairs is targeting 5,000 vulnerable people for the period 2016-2018. The next project will cost 100 Million FCFA.
