This program on housekeeping and childcare with adolescent girls and teenage mothers; is a three month training program to be carried out as followed:

• Two month training in Tole village with theory, tutorials, practical lessons, and video lessons;

• One month internship in a hospitality institution (hotel/child care center).

The program courses include laundry (ironing, washing, cloth folding).career development orientation, housekeeping (decoration, hygiene). Basic childcare, health safety, effective communication, protocol, settling family disputes, nutrition, hotel catering, cookery.

At the end of the training, the participants will sit in for an end of training examination, after which, they will be awarded attestations from Marta Perrone professional Housekeeping, USA.

This will enable the participants look for jobs in hospitality Institutions and or Open their own hospitality businesses to cater for  their livelihood and care for their family. Training one participant costs US$ 265.

The training of these future professional Housekeepers, mothers and, leaders of our community is a shared social responsibility; we cannot do it alone without your generous support.

Donors, Friends and Supporters,

We started our "After School Classes" for Orphans and Vulnerable children in Tole Village, Cameroon on October  07, 2013. Forty-five Children were identified from two of the four primary schools in Tole but we selected 15 to start with as a result of the limited resources to run the classes. The 15children  were carefully selected after a social inquiry work done by our social worker.

We supplied books, didactic materials and give stipend  to our local volunteer teacher - Abia Taku ; who also is a teacher at the presbyterian primary tole Village. Abia coordinates the classes and also serves as our Children education support contact in Tole. Each month it costs us US$135 to run the classes.

There is high pressure on us for the inclusion of the other needy children, who are in dare need of the classes for their social and cognitive development.

We look forward to your continued support to give quality education to all deserving underserved and underprivilede children in our community.

Investing in Children education is a  responsible and sustainable development venture for the good of all.
