Self Reliance Promoters' NGO

SEREP is a non-profit, non-governmental organization situated in Kumbo, Bui Division, North West Region of Cameroon. The area is ranked as amongst the least developed nationally, with limited infrastructure, high birth rate, high unemployment, as well as a high level of HIV/AIDS transmission and widespread poverty. This distressing situation prompted the formation of SEREP in 1997 with an aim of addressing the social problems caused by such and to Serve the underprivileged ones without boundaries. We work in several projects which are identified in accordance with the felt needs of the people and friendly to the environment. Orphaned and Vulnerable children's education remain our top priorit...

Progress Report on help Mbosha Women build a Primary Health post

Volunteers and Women in front of the Health post
Volunteers and Women in front of the Health post

The Original volunteers continue to send medical students who are currently benefiting from this rural health post set up by gaining some experiences and helping the communities.

Hannah, Pippa, Amar and Philip worked and enjoyed this community with their local health post which is progressively improving.

Since they are students they encouraged them, worked with them to project the yard from stray animals, like horses, cows  sheep  and goats.  The carried out an intensive health education and health survey in the Mbosha village.

Hanna and Pippa also stayed in this community and worked with them on HIV/AIDS education which was a challenging project.  It turned out that most of them had not heard about HIV/AIDS and prevention openly for the first time, and had been told not to talk of condoms.

They were supported with some essential drugs and gloves.  Philip, another volunteer worked on development, good record keeping, and management in the health post.  Women were encouraged to keep on with the project despite the slow nature of the progress being made.  We hope that as donations continue to happen, we will keep on with the work especially the improving of the condition of the building.

Luke one of the volunteers who came in only for two weeks was very satisfied and challenged with what the poor women could do just to help the entire community and for the future generations as their objective.  He declared that he will be coming back in June 2013  to work and set up many things that can improve the health post and the health of the community.

We would appreciate any additional or new assistance to this project.  May God bless you especially the charitable hands that gives cheerfully, willingly and for the sake of humanity.

Progress Report on Provide Education for 100 Orphans in Cameroon

Iron Benders working in preparation for Decking
Iron Benders working in preparation for Decking

No tongue can express the wonderful progress that this project has been recorded. This is because of the efforts that we employed. The last disubursement  which was the highest that this project has ever received took us to a  very high level.  This encouraged all our volunteers, holiday students and all the staff members including the community to join participate actively in the project

50% of the disbursed money was used for buying wood for the completion of the framework for the last rooms in addition to iron rods, cement, sand and technical labour. We were able to do a lot in the project as you can see from the project pictures.

In fact we are very much delighted to report that within the last one month much has been done because of our financial support.

We are looking forward to do the final decking of the first phase on the 8th of August, if  we can raise some money to buy at least 70 bags of cement and timber for the final form work. 

We thank those who have been supporting this project and just like Oliver Twist would always do, we wish to inform  all who have shown interest in this project to give us another  touch. For those who are yet to discover this project to do support should be doing so with great assurance and confidence that all the donation are 100% directed to the project.

We may be able to come up with a video for the community decking exercise of the 8th of September through YouTube.

Thanks to every one who have been supporting this project and those that still to. 

May God Bless you.

Progress report on give a gift of education

A Volunteer teaching the Orphans
A Volunteer teaching the Orphans

It is my pleasure to report that this project has been the most active one within this period.  We received volunteers from the UK who came in to work in this project.  They taught English, Mathematics and Business Mathematics within the months of July and August.

We selected all the Orphaned and vulnerable children who had learning difficulties and also invited others from other institutions around Kumbo and brought together for  holiday classes. 

During the holiday classes, they and the volunteers participated in the construction project which is aimed at improving their learning environment in terms of infrastructures.

One of the volunteers Mr. Caluum Vimpany was practically involved in the identification of the orphaned who have just completed primary school.  We are working on the list at the moment preparing  to admit them for this academic year.   The work that he did has again created some awareness and interest among our communities to identify and direct more of such cases to us.  As such we hope to increase the number this year.

This time volunteers through original volunteers have indicated to teach in this institution come September and the quality of training is also going to be improved.

The below pictures shores Mr. David correcting a test and a cross section of some of the volunteers and a group pictures with one of the classes.

Final Year Class.  Eight of them sat for the G.C.E. and Seven of them  passed.  I am glad that  support given to these children has gone a long way to restore hope in them, and hence achieving our goal.

We thank those who have been supporting this project and assuring those who are yet to do so to rest assured that their hard earned money is being used accordingly on these children. This is a lovely project to support.
