Reso collect Our approach

We work with women from the Sikoum locality and its surroundings, involving them in all our actions to make them agents of their own change.

We promote the participation of the population and local authorities to create conditions and spaces that allow everyone to express themselves and positively contribute to the success of initiatives for women.

General Objective

To promote work and empower women as agents of social change.

Specific objectives

In late 2015, the UN adopted a new sustainable development agenda, centered around the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs)), which it aims to achieve by 2030.

Reso Collect contributes to sustainable development by addressing seven of the 17 goals, namely:

  1. Fighting extreme poverty
  2. Education and functional literacy
  3. Strengthening women's capacities
  4. Income-generating activities
  5. Poverty reduction
  6. Responsible consumption
  7. Environmental protection

PROJECTS 2023-2026

Cassava Processing Project

Agriculture and the processing of agricultural products sustain the lives of many rural families in Cameroon.

The vast majority of village communities are farmers. They cultivate plots of land for the family’s needs and sell surpluses to cover health and education expenses for the children.

Agricultural productions, often abundant in southern Cameroon, are not always valued and they go to waste. Processing agricultural products ensures their preservation and their market availability during more favorable selling periods.

The cassava processing domain is vast, with numerous derivatives such as couscous, tapioca, starch, bread flour, and dye.

Establishing a local micro-economy around the processing of agricultural products by local farmers will enable better crop management.

We have a small tapioca production unit that already enables us to add value to the produce from our agricultural area, as well as the cassava produced by neighboring farmers.

Our main challenge in the coming years will be the distribution and sale of the finished product through various distribution channels identified in the city of Douala.

Off-Season Food Crops Project

Reso Collect Cameroon has agricultural production infrastructure in Sikoum.

Our farm provides a base for the introduction of improved cassava varieties and the development of agro-pastoral techniques necessary for yield improvement.

Based on this, the association aims to encourage the creation of activities in the fields of agriculture and processing of agricultural products.

Off-season irrigated crops such as tomato production offer better selling prices to producers.

The project aims to validate this option, to disseminate it, i.e., to multiply it among local families or motivated youth looking to build a lucrative future.

We already provide small plots for off-season food crop trials, benefiting from our water distribution installation.

Water Distribution and Environmental Protection Project

Reso Collect, with the women, is involved in promoting social and environmental development.

This entails supporting activities that improve the daily lives of rural populations by providing access to clean water and protecting the environment (cleaning, reducing plastic pollution, etc.).

Reso Collect has installed a solar-powered borehole that provides clean water to nearly 1000 people per day, continuously during the dry season and slightly less during the rainy season.

Environmental cleanup activities near residential areas and water points are carried out in collaboration with the Sikoum Women's House.

Tomato Sauce Processing Project

Organic production, processing, and distribution of local products create value for village populations.

In particular, tomato sauce processing offers promising income prospects.

Reso Collect supports this initiative by:

  • Taking advantage of the abundant products for canning and marketing during the dry season shortage.
  • Training volunteers for this type of production, especially young people and women from the village,
  • Collaborating with local producers and establishing partnerships with them to encourage organic tomato cultivation without pesticides,
  • Allowing their fellow citizens to consume quality preserved products.
The project aims to expand our workshop to process tomatoes into sauce or tomato puree for local markets.
