WRC is once again happy to Support and be Part of the Wonderful NGO “International Center for Environmental Education & Community Development (ICENECDEV)” for Two New Crucial Projects in Cameroon.
Air pollution remains a critical task in Cameroon. Due to insufficient emissions inventories, air pollution is becoming a serious leading cause of thousands of death locally, and affecting climate change in overall central Africa. There are a number of causes of air pollution in Cameroon. Wood and garbage burning, petroleum distillates plants, the use of diesel electricity generators, exhaust gas, etc., causing outdoor pollution; while cooking and heating depending on fuels (e.g., wood, charcoal, kerosene) at home causes indoor pollution, which is negatively affecting the health conditions (e.g., cardiovascular disease, such as strokes and heart disease, as well as cancer and respiratory disease) of 97 % of people, mostly women and children. However, due to lack of funding the environmentalists in Cameroon are struggling to research this significant environmental issue and resolve this issue through creative and efficient methods they have in mind as well. And despite the challenges Cameroon is facing, in order to overcome and prevent these critical environmental issues in Cameroon, ICENECDEV is making huge efforts in training and supporting rural women with fuel-efficient cook stoves to Reduce Indoor Air Pollution.
Water pollution is another critical task in Cameroon. And one of the utmost causes of water pollution in Cameroon is poor management of wastewater. That is, the people are using rivers and streams as waste dumps. And this situation is aggravating the degree of water pollution caused by poor drainage system and leading to waterborne diseases such as cholera as well. Thus, in order to overcome and prevent water pollution in Cameroon, ICENECDEV is exerting itself in initiating to Combat Marine Plastic litter and Micro Plastic Along the West Coast of Cameroon, by (a) committing to tackle of marine litter by suggesting and recommending a national collection; (b) promoting community based organizations and plastic companies to participate in beach clean-ups Activities In Cameroon; (c) engaging companies, business and shops to inform customers on the negative environmental impact of plastics carrier bags and microplastic; and (d) supporting the Ban on microplastics by the Cameroon Government; Promoting research and community investigation on plastics on marine wildlife along the west Coast of Cameroon; and Establishing an informal Network to Combat Marine litter in Cameroon!
Step by step, ICENECDEV has been endeavoring and is continuously , making its effort in order to tackle the environmental crisis the country is facing. Please join us and show your support for the critical Two Projects!
* Stand Up Against Sex-Trafficking of Minors (Teen Up) (십대여성인권센터)
January 4, 2020 by WRC
WRC is happy to Support and be Part of the Wonderful NGO “Stand Up Against Sex-Trafficking of Minors (Teen Up) (십대여성인권센터)”. “Stand Up Against Sex-Trafficking of Minors” was established in 2012 in South Korea, by its President JinKyeong Cho, a Renown Human Rights Activist in South Korea, to support teens and children who are victims of sex trafficking and to change social awareness of this crucial issue. Teen Up is the pioneer to prevent sex-trafficking of minors aiding over 8,000 young women and 20,000 counseling cases and also assisting the children with intellectual disability exploited by prostitution.
Child Prostitution is one of the hideous crimes of sexual exploitation and abuse by adults. And the reality of child prostitution is very serious. Age of the females involved in prostitution is getting lower which average ranges in 12 to 16. Many homeless girls are introduced to prostitution as means to get food and shelter, which is continued for a long period of their time, which links to other serious crimes such as drug-related crimes, homicide, etc.. Additionally, smart phone generation enables smart phone chatting applications to become an easy target as a primary channel for prostitution. All these are one of the most serious issues that almost every country is experiencing.
Thus, in order to ameliorate this grave issue, since 2012, Teen Up has set up:
a) synthetic and holistic support systems such as Youth Growing-Up Camp & Hope Raising Process (a program for youth and child prostitution victims for deprostitution, raising self-respect, social integration, relationship build-on, therapy and healing)
b) documenting files and accusations of sex purchase
c) continuous education and training of cyber torte counsellors (warning and reporting pimps and sex buyers by monitoring online chatting application, and reporting to Korea Communication Standards Commission, Police & Prosecutors’ Office, Cyber Bureau of Korean National Police)
d) online counseling application
e) legal | medical | psychotherapy counseling (supporting with comprehensive treatment of post traumatic stress disorder due to sexual exploitations along with the cooperation with Seoul Medical Association and affiliated hospitals)
f) connecting residence | education | job to the victims for self-supporting ability
g) taking legal actions in court against all forms of application for aggravation, introduction, and recommendation of prostitution with more than 40 lawyers within the center
h) and finally, constructing global networks against sexually exploiting human trafficking and the forward base for anti-prostitution in Asia.
These hard working actions of “Teen Up” played a major role leading to change its awareness as to sex-trafficking, which led to make laws and policies concerning this issue in Korea, and to set up various national support systems in other countries. Step by step, “Teen Up” has been endeavoring & making its effort in tackling one of the hideous crimes the world is facing! Please join us & show your Support for the major project of “Teen-Up"!!
