Empowerment of Mbororro women on Solar Energy installation to ensure milk preservation for sustainable Livelihoods
Madakson Cattle Breeders Group CIG will empower Mbororro women on Solar Energy installation to ensure milk preservation for sustainable livelihoods. This project aims to sustainably improve the income, health and education of the indigenous pastoralist Mbororo Women of Botombo Community in the West Region of Cameroon. Improved skills in the use of solar energy and solar equipment maintenance will enable these Mbororo Women of Botombo to be able to preserve their fresh milk and transform into cheese, butter and yoghurt in larger quantities; unlike before where lack of storage equipment and improved skills, limited output due to preservation problems.

Project Characteristics and Results
In a typical indigenous Mbororo community, men are main decision makers and influences all activities in the community while women are more of observers of development rather than actors of development. Thus creating an imbalance of influence in the community between men and women. To address this, the project will sensitized men on the importance of women active participations in decision making in family and community issues. We shall make sure there is a gender balance when chosen communities members to be involved in the leadership and implementation of the project.
Emphasis on Sustainable Livelihoods
Over 50 women in Dedango will be trained on milk transformation. The women will also gain skills in marketing and access to new markets. This will improve the income generation capability of the women. Sewing Machines will be installed for women in Didango, Yolo and Botombo. The women will be using the sewing machine for the production of face marks both for community use and for sale to other communities in need. The installation of the solar refrigerator in Yolo community will enable women to preserved dairy products, reduce waste and makes more sales. This will also increase yield and the income of the women.
