CYJULERC, unique among Cameroon’s women’s organizations, is comprised of professional jurists focusing on improving the lives of rural women and children. The organization has exhibited exceptional courage and creativity in the long-term strategic projects it has initiated. The impact of CYJULERC’s work extends from grassroots communities to the highest policy level of the Cameroonian society (Ministries and Parliament). Below are two examples:
