SHUMAS - CAMEROON
In Cameroon, people with special needs are considered inferior, inadequate, and
incapable of living a normal life. Long-term segregation has created fear,
embarrassment, and discrimination. As a result, the rate of unemployment for
persons with disabilities is much higher than the general rate. In addition, many
people with disabilities have lower levels of education, lower self-esteem, and are
not able to access the medical services they need. Many of the programs and services
targeted to people with special needs are not affordable.
Nonetheless, when people with special needs are given equal opportunity, they can
support themselves and make valuable contributions to society and to the economy.
Therefore, SHUMAS provides adapated training and mental health care to people
with special needs, to enable them to support themselves and reach their full
potentials, while changing the way they are viewed by society.
