SHUMAS - CAMEROON
How to Support SHUMAS Programs
SHUMAS Cameroon strongly believes that isolated
actions cannot lead to any meaningful development
in a community. That is the reason why she is
focused on integrated sustainable rural
development which is done by using a participatory
approach which respects the following procedure:
SHUMAS makes determined efforts to let
communities know about its programs and
activities through newspapers, radio
programs, community briefings etc.
Communities must have identified a problem which must be their felt need and
apply to SHUMAS with pictures illustrating the problem.
Applications are screened and a priority list is established for feasibilities based on
the problem expressed and what the community has done/ is doing to solve the
SHUMAS carries out feasibility studies in these
selected communities, during which
communities are sensitized on
After feasibility studies, SHUMAS together
with partners select benefiting communities on a
100 points basis. (40% for the level of need and
60% for community participation)
SHUMAS develops proposals and together
with partners source for funds since SHUMAS
is not a funding body. This procedure
sometimes takes several months. All applicants must take note of this.
If the funds are gotten, the selected communities are notified and given a period of
about two weeks to mobilize their local contribution. The community that mobilizes
her contribution first is finally selected for that project
A protocol agreement is signed between SHUMAS and the community which must
be endorsed by the administration, the Mayor, the Ministry concerned etc.
A planning meeting is organized between SHUMAS and the Community during
which a plan of action is developed for the project.
When the endorsed protocol agreement is returned, the project begins and
SHUMAS then purchases all the industrial materials and supplies to the project site
The community is expected to ensure the security of the materials because any
material stolen or misused is replaced by
During implementation, SHUMAS through
her project officers goes to the site regularly
to monitor and supervise the work.
SHUMAS expects weekly/monthly reports
from communities with photos illustrating
the progress of the project.
On completion, the project is handed over to
the community and a final report is written
and submitted to partners.
After the handing over, impact assessment is
done every four months to evaluate the
impact of the project on the beneficiaries.
