Bridging the Gaps & Bringing Development to the People
Human Rights & Citizenship
Human Rights and Citizenship are central notions on the advancement of every society, that’s why in women empowerment we incorporate these notions. Sensitizing and educating the communities to get them acquainted with key and core values that propels them get to become law abiding citizens contributing the growth of the nation. We envision a society where every citizen knows his or her rights and can do the right thing at the right time.
Bridgers achieve this through the organization of awareness raising campaigns, workshops, talks etc.

Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Cameroon face many challenges. IDPs are spread in many parts of Cameroon today as a result of the ongoing Anglophone crisis in Cameroon which has seen people in their thousands unwillingly leave their places of habitual residence to other towns and cities for safety.

Word from the Coordinator
Thanks so much for visiting our website. I am humbled and most delighted to welcome you to this platform where you are introduced to our Non Governmental Organization bent on women empowerment through advocacy. To us, Women Empowerment means increasing the power of women socially, economically and emotionally.
Our simple strategy to attain this goal is called the “Bridgers Spider Web”. This strategy involves networking women by bringing them on a common platform to share ideas, stories, experiences and expertise in varied fields to inspire hope and uplift the spirit of their fellow women. Its all about enabling women to help/stand up for each other with the minimal means at their disposal. This literally is our plan for the 21st Century women! a core reason why Bridgers was carefully co-founded in 2013 and got register in 2016 to carry out civil society actions that neatly bridge the gaps which impede the women folks from socio-economic and political development.
Gender based violence has put most women in constant fear yet the Sustainable Development Goals needs to be achieved sooner than later.
From our work in the field, a lot of women/girls cry and testify in the background as being victims of torture and violence thus, needing some form of psycho-social and/or rehabilitation support. And this is what is most lacking. We therefore strongly belief that if women are empowered in every sense of the word, violence against them would obviously be minimize! Through our activities we hopefully envisage a sustainable peaceful world where all humans are equal.
On this basis therefore, I hereby launch a fervent appeal to your heart and conscience to join hands with Bridgers in a synergy to push and mature this vision and mission we embarked on. Be part of the change the world needs. Leave your footprints on the sands of time. #He for She#
