Women heating the Palm oil in order to share
Women heating the Palm oil in order to share

Greetings from Cameroon.  I am glad to report again regarding this project. Control was made in three groups and the results were very encouraging  in that the groups are well managed and  we noted that the project  has generated a reasonable profit for themselves.   From this, the objective of the project is highly succeeding  because in the near future the income generated by these groups shall become their intitial capital.

We have also increased the number of groups thereby increasing the number of beneficiaries.  The new groups have joined the pilot ones.

Two volunteers from the UK came and worked in this project to help monitor and advice them on proper management of their project and also ensure sustainability in all their activities.

The pictures attached are for one of the groups  heating and sharing the oil and the volunteers who were happy to work in this project.

Thank you all for supporting this project.  Any one should feel free to help these women through the Palm oil project.

 It is another time for the report again.   After our last report, work continued in the school . I am glad to report  that the doors and windows have been fitted and what is left  now is the cementing of the floors  and plasltering the side and back parts of the building.

We decided to put the doors and window shutters because to avoid stray animals from entering the well plastered class rooms and office.  I am glad to report that  work is going on sucessfully.

This is summer holidays and we are expecting volunteers from  to arrive on the 15th of July so that we can get on with the flooring and plastering of the back  and side parts.


At the time of writing this report since were are already cut up by time the  pictures are still being awaited.  As soon as the pictures arrive I aill add a new report because work is going on at the time of  reportiing.

I want to believe that by Septmber, the  school shall be painted and put to use even before putting the ecelling boards.

May God continue to bless the charital hands of this project.
