BUSINESS AND LEADERSHIP TRAINING SEMINAR

In most African countries, especially Cameroon, men are considered to have the potential to be leaders, while women are supposed to sit back home and do chores. In some parts of my country, female leaders are considered to be disrespectful and not submissive to their husbands. For this reason, Breaking Ground, in partnership with Memorial Flavia, a partner NGO in Dschang, organized a leadership seminar for our farmers in Legouh, an agricultural cooperative, from our partner village, Nzong.

Partipants, set up for the seminar

During this seminar, which lasted 2 days, the participants learned leadership skills, qualities of a good leader, and how to apply skills learned in their organization. Also, they learned that being united, cooperative, and transparent, will help their cooperative grow.

In addition, they worked in small groups to discuss organizational topics like, the role of the management committee and the general assembly in an organization. Each group did a presentation on a topic and women were encouraged to lead the work.

At the end of the training, Breaking Ground is happy to see bold women who are ready to lead their community. Mrs Tintock Francoise, president of Legouh agricultural cooperative was very happy that she learned a lot from the seminar. She learned leadership skills, effective leadership, and she believes this training will help her become a good leader by applying these skills in her organization.
