Determine to provide quality water for all.

Better Family Foundation (BFF) is poised to help the Muteff community to have quality safe drinking water.  After our monitoring of the operation of the system in place and reception of the community reports on the functioning of the recently built water structures BFF realised that the water supply is not properly managed and needs to be extended to other parts of the community to make it more accessible to the population. In this vein we have started holding meetings to plan ho to organize a refresher course on water management and extend the existing systems to other parts of the village.

In order to ensure the suceess of the plan BFF has been holding meetings and making plans with the Fundong Council on how to raise money to get the work done. We have also been making relentless efforts to raise funds nationally and internationally in order to provide quality water for everybody in this underprivileged community.

During this time, we are also thankful because some people have kept on showing their humanitarian gestures by contribbuting through Global Giving into this project fund in order to make our dream come true. We appreciate your generousity and assure you that the money will be put into effective and efficient use.

Determination to reduce the prevalence rate of HIV

Since the last report Better Family Founndation has being busy on the field planning on how to organize the would be HIV/Sex-ED camp for at risk youth in Fundong subdivision and beyond. BFF management has been   lobbying for partners such as Peace Corps Cameroon through its Volunteers and Nourish Student International in the United States on how to raise resources to add to what our donors will provide in order to make tthe organization of the workshop possible. In doing this we have been communicating with these partners signing memorandum of understanding and defining our variuos roles during the implementation of the project.

Counting on faith that we will raise the required resources for the camp, we have used the remaining youth at risk manuals to support a similar camp for the Fonfuka Youths. Fonfuka is a town some 60 km away from Fundong town. This is a camp organized by the Peace Corps volunteer resident in Fonfuka.

We are also busy working with our peer educators sensitizing youths in and around Fundong on how to prevent HIV/AIDS in our society.

We heartedly thank all our donors for helping us to reduce the prevalence rate of HIV/AIDS in our community.

More students sponsored.

After the last report Better Family Foundation (BFF) was opportune to raise additional funds and decided to sponsor an additional twenty two (22) students from secondary schools. In order to ensure transparency and fairness to all the students around, the BFF staff went round the government secondary schools in Fundong and its vicinity to sensitize all the students on all what it takes to benefit from Better Family Foundation sponsorship. This was later followed by home visits to the prospective beneficiaries in order to ensure that they are really from underprivileged backgrounds.

 In cases were the parents had struggled to pay all the fee, we used the money to pay for children’s final year examinations or buy textbooks for the concerned with the money depending on the situation at hand.

It should be noted that we have also being holding evaluation meetings with the students to monitor the progress of the program.

BFF on behalf of the students and their parents wish to thank all our donors for helping to give hope for these needy Cameroonians.
