In order to contribute to the empowerment of Christian women and in particular widows, YALEF CAMEROON has set up a literacy programme. The objective of the latter is to enable them to express themselves fluently and to be able to read and write in French, and their local language in order to be able to read the Bible and share the Gospel around them with confidence and be able to interact freely in various aspects of their lives.
