How to Benefit from 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: 1. SHUMAS makes determined efforts to let communities know about its programs and activities through newspapers, radio programs, community briefings etc. 2. Communities must have identified a problem which must be their felt need and apply to SHUMAS with pictures illustrating the problem. 3. 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 problem. 4. SHUMAS carries out feasibility studies in these selected communities, during which communities are sensitized on SHUMAS´approach. 5. 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) 6. 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. 7. 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 8. A protocol agreement is signed between SHUMAS and the community which must be endorsed by the administration, the Mayor, the Ministry concerned etc. 9. A planning meeting is organized between SHUMAS and the Community during which a plan of action is developed for the project. 10. When the endorsed protocol agreement is returned, the project begins and SHUMAS then purchases all the industrial materials and supply to the project site 11. The community is expected to ensure the security of the materials because any material stolen or misused is replaced by them. 12. During implementation, SHUMAS through her project officers goes to the site regularly to monitor and supervise the work. 13. SHUMAS expects weekly/monthly reports from communities with photos illustrating the progress of the project. 14. On completion, the project is handed over to the community and a final report is written and submitted to partners. 15. After the handing over, impact assessment is done every four months to evaluate the impact of the project on the beneficiaries.
