Social Development International (â€œSDIâ€) is a social development and relief organization which is not for profit, non governmental and non discriminating with the vision of working for the practical realization of sustainable social development initiatives by protecting the vulnerable and at-risk population and their communities.
SDI was formed on December 2005 with the aim of promoting progressive social and economic transformation for the poor and under-served communities in Cameroon. Our goal is to become agents of positive change irrespective of their nationality, class, color, race or social status; through personal transformation practices, social change training, education, advocacy, health, and charity. We are a volunteer driven organization and staffed by dedicated volunteers and sustained financially by individuals, organizations and foundations who support our mission.
SDI was launched by a small group of individuals with a strong commitment to advocating for and speaking on behalf of children, adolescents and care-givers whose voices have been silenced by misfortunes such as gender bias cultural insensitivity, illiteracy, hunger, injustice, unjust traditions, inhumane treatments, sickness, lack of parental affection, accidents, and natural disaster. Misery and trauma have led many children and adolescents to adopt delinquent and deviant behaviors as a kind of consolation and escape device.
Our organization pays specific attention to women, youths and children who are the most vulnerable with respect to inequality, poverty and human rights abuse in their communities. These cruel vices, that mostly affect women and children, hinder personal development, equality, peace, and human progress in general. In short, SDI works to help women and children live a better life.
SDI is structured to carry out and facilitate research, trainings, and advocacy initiatives that examine and document practices, policies and actions of individuals, organizations/institutions which impede the proper dispatch and recognition of social and economic justice for individuals in these communities. We also facilitate pro-active and participatory methods for marginalized communities to create self-sustaining financial security and economic involvement. This includes offering micro-credit to increase local entrepreneurial pursuits, teaching literacy for professional development, and mentoring on the importance of physical and emotional health.
