Agriculture: ASEED renews commitment towards Belo Women

By Bakah Derick 

Action for Social Empowerment and Economic Development (ASEED) has renewed her commitment towards women in Belo ahead of the new farming season. Bobe Timothy Waindim reached out to the women of Belo most of whom are farmers  with planting seeds on Sunday 10 April 2022 as he renewed a tradition he suspended in 2017 as a result of the ongoing armed conflict in the North West Region.

Talking to, the donor explained that his wife  (late) Dorcas Waindim  Founder and Executive Director of ASEED used to be very close to the women of Belo and since she passed on, he decided to keep that relationship by always giving support at the start of the farming season as well as other areas.

"In memory of my late wife, I decided to be supporting women in Belo who were close to her at the start of every farming season. The last time I did was in 2017 and because of the crisis I had to redirect attention to internally displaced persons (IDPs) from that area who are based in Bamenda. I had to help them startup income generating activities and to establish birth certificates and ID cards they lost as a result of the crisis. After doing that for sometime, I decided to go back to the the women this time around to assist they prepare for the farming season." Timothy Waindim said 

After his wife passed on some years back, Bobe Timothy Waindim started the Dorcas Waindim Foundation through which he has been assisting the women and others in need.

In addition to the maize seeds, Timothy Waindim who is also the General Manager of the North West Co-operative Association (NWCA)  added a good number of buckets
"I added buckets which can help the women carry little things from the farm or even fetch water around. Sometimes it may not be easy as we think and as a man who grow up in the village, I can tell you that things can be that difficult simetimes." He added 

The beneficiary women have expressed their gratitude to the GM who sent words of encouragement  to the women through their family successor and a local church leader (pastor)

Since 2019, the foundation has been taking care of internally displaced persons  from around Boyo. The establishment of lost documents especially National Identity cards has been paramount.
