The Resilient  project according to the IMSSRAD leader is born out of the economic hardship many have been subjected to as a result of the ongoing armed conflict in the North West Region of Cameroon. With many internally displaced persons now integrating neighbourhoods in the municipality, improving income generating activities in such neighbourhoods will go a long way to better livelihood.
