Vocational Rehabilitation CenterThe SHUMAS Vocational Rehabilitation Centre, located at the head office in Bamenda, offers training in income-generating life skills such as sewing, knitting, traditional embroidery, shoe-mending, cane-weaving, hairdressing and jewellery. People with special needs are trained in one of these trades and basic life skills through a free two-year individually adapted training course; there is a dormitory on-site for those who come from far away. Upon successful completion of the course, graduates receive materials to help them set up their own workshops in their communities. SHUMAS continues to monitor their progress and work with parents/guardians to overcome obstacles. So far, more than 60 students have completed or are completing their training. Some graduates are able to support their families through the proceeds of their workshops.
