My Habitat My Wallet

FUNIC seeks to solve the problem of low literacy rate, and consequently poverty especially in the rural areas of Cameroon by developing young business leaders who will create and lead change in their communities. in 2015, FUNIC launched a project to provide free education and training to young people from rural areas. The programme with hashtag #Myhabitatmywallet is the first of its kind in the sub Region. Students support themselves in school my making use of what is produced from their emmediate environment.

Rural areas in Cameroon are the hardest hit by poverty due to the low literacy rate. These rural areas are endowed with numerous business opportunities, especially in the domains of agriculture, transport and logistics, tourism, and food processing. Yet, poverty continues to be a big challenge, principally because of lack of a good education. It is estimated that only about 1% of students in rural areas make it to the university.

We aim to close the education gap between rural and urban areas by providing business education and training that will develop business leaders and social entrepreneurs who will create jobs for other young people in their communities.
