Some OVCs received gifts for good performance

After our last report, we did not relent our efforts in the intensification of ensuring quality education as a special gift to orphaned children under our care and training. We were able to conduct the end of year assessment in all classes including the soft ware and Hard ware training sections. The final year students wrote their G.C.E.examinations and the result have just been release with a very good % passed. We participated in the National day march pass and OVCs were very satisfied as they participated along side with other schools. Here under, is a group picture which was taken after the march pass. At the end of the end of year examinations, there was another special examination which which was set by the NSo Language Organization and the OVcs did excellently well. The parcels shown were given by the Ministry of Basic education in Yaounde through the Nso Language Organization. The picture shows the students during the end of year prize award. We gave prized to students in all disciplines. We are glad to report that the support to Give a Gift of Education was able to provide basic educational needs and even went as far as helping some who had ill health problems. More children have been identified and admission is currently going one. The Number of OVcs is expected to to be increased because we were able to complete new class rooms and looking forward to providing more Benches. Giving a gift of Education to a child is a permanent gift. We are now working on building another section of the school which will enable us to have a good Computer lab for these children. Part of this building will be housing our volunteers who come out from Original volunteers and International Bond and teach the children. We have the honour to thank all those who have been supporting the project through out the year. Another academic year is soon coming and we will set the ball rolling on buying of Uniforms, school books, shoes, and other educational needs for the must vulnerable ones already identified and admitted so far. May God continue to bless you as you support these children so that they can have hope and equally become responsible in future. We thank the Globalgiving team for the wonderful job they are doing just to see that all the donations are transferred for this purpose. We will continue to do our best in providing quality education to these children.

Here comes again another progress report for the Empowerment of women in the rural part of Cameroon in Africa.  I am very glad to report that this project is fast changing the lives of  the pilot groups which are beneficiaries of the project.   We want to report that another group has been added to the first five pilot groups and more oil if being supplied at the momet.  

The project and its activities on groups dynamics, bookkeeping and conlflict management workshops has been very fruitful.   It has been agreed that as the number groups is expected to raise as we keep on with the fundraising, more workshops shall be organised and more refereshal courses shall be requested to be done by our volunteers from the UK through Original volunteers.

We will continue working had and thanks to the expert knowledge of Miss Hannah from the University of Sussex who has been working had on the project in particular and again who took this project as case study for her degree course on international development.

We are encourage women to help women as much as possible. More groups continue to knock our office doors  requesting to become beneficiaries.  Hopefully a wider community will benefit from the project as we continue to manage it well and also keeping them empowered in many ways.

Thanks to those who have been supporting this project and would be supporters whould rest assured that thier hard earned money is going to support this wonderful ongoing project.

May God the Almighty contininue to give us the will to cheerful support the needy as he would always bless the cheerful hands that give happily.
