About 70% of adolescents in Cameroon are sexually active at the age of 16. 14 in every 100 girls aged 15-24 have conceived a baby though only 4% of the pregnant adolescents (married or not) desired a pregnancy. (GFMER 2010). Generally, unintended pregnancies in Cameroon stand at 22.7% with only 37% of family planning demands satisfied (Countdown 2012).

Enable access to gainful jobs for women who have skills and desire but are limited by the duty to stay home and nurture kids. More women in Cameroon now pursue education beyond basic with the desire to be gainfully employed but the task to procreate (believed to be the highest value of a woman in Cameroon) prevents them from engaging in meaningful economic activities outside the home. This project will create Child Daycare Centers (CDC) which in 3 years can help up to 1000 mothers daily to work outside the home.
