The Women of Nkong

In January, Breaking Ground ran a pilot Women's Entrepreneurial Program, in the village of Nkong.  The class, taught by Peace Corps volunteer Jessica Veldman and Agronomy Engineer Sandrine Djomo, covered basic entrepreneurial ideas and began a conversation about crop diversification and better farming practices. 

In the coming months, Paul, working with Sandrine and other agricultural specialists, will work to adapt our Women's Entrepreneurial Program, which currently serves an urban population, to the needs of Nkong and the neighboring villages. Once our plans are finalized, we will begin fundraising in earnest. 

The women of Nkong are enthusiastic and energized and we are excited to continue to work with them. We hope that the dialogue started this January will be ongoing and that this class will be the first of many.
