PEERS AND VOLUNTEERS SKILLS AND CAPACITY BUILDING ON THE PRODUCTION OF LIQUID AND BAR SOAP ORGANISED BY ALL4WOMEN
In our fight to stop COVID19, promote WASH and the Sustainable Development Goals 1 ( No poverty) and 8 (Decent work and economic growth) All4women in collaboration with Afreekan Pride Association Cameroon organized a three (3) days workshop to train peers and its volunteers on the production of liquid and bar soap.
OBJEVTIVES OF THE PROJECT
The Project had as objectives;
To train peers and volunteers on the local production of gel/liquid soap for sustainable income flow and betterment of livelihood.
To ensure that Volunteers acquire the skills to train other women in communities, especially vulnerable women who will in turn use the skills for sustainable income activities, like starting their own micro businesses.
Responding to SDG 1 (No Poverty), we strive to ensure that vulnerable families have better Livelihood through our training programs.
The training started at 3:00pm with the introduction of participants at All4women’s office.
After the introduction, group photographs of trainer and trainees were taken.
Followed by this were notes on the ingredients and procedure of gel/liquid soap.
The last activity was mixing of ingredients in water separately and kept to stay overnight.
On day two (02), the training started at 1:00pm. We began by combining the mixtures, adding color and sieving the mixture to form our gel soap.
After getting our gel soap ready, we proceeded with notes on the production of bar soap (ingredients and procedure). We proceeded with the mixture of the ingredients to form the soap paste. We concluded by pouring the paste in to the mold.
In a nutshell, the training was successful as we were able to get a good end product and also all trainees were able to acquire knowledge on the production of gel and bar soap and they can now produce for themselves. Now we await our beneficiary to micro Businesses with what they have learnt.
And from our Survey of them started a business in gel soap already and we will going there sooner for follow up.
