Dear Donors,
On the path to success, day after day, the story is changing for the best. And in the lips of our beneficiaries, the praises are endless. Things will never be the same again in the lives of our beneficiaries thanks to your support.
With the positive results revealed by the evaluation on project impact for the support to 36 girls on different business activities, the last three months was a period to scale up the businesses of the different previous beneficiaries while coaching them on business skills and strategies to get them ready for the challenges of moving gradually from a small business to a much bigger business initiative.
Thus, after follow up visits to the beneficiaries’ business sites, a coaching exercise was organized on Basic Book Keeping and Effective Groups. The participation and interest expressed by beneficiaries during the coaching exercise was a motivation to provide outstanding girls with additional capital to expand their business initiatives.
The beneficiary’s appraisal has often been a motivation for Reach Out staff to do more. Their stories are often very touching and testimonies to a positive twist on their lives, their immediate family and the community at large.
Testimonies from Beneficiaries
Stephanie : “I have expanded my pepper business to include tomatoes and other vegetables. I can now go to neighboring towns to sell my goods”

Expina: “Buying medications for my son when need be is no longer a challenge for me. I can afford that and more for him, thanks to my fish business”

Vastina: “Thanks to the money I raised from my call box business, I was able to assist my family in giving my father a befitting burial”

Extending a hand to the needy

Dear Donors,

175 youth benefitted from the annual youth engagement organized every summer and seeks to distract them from risky behaviors, such as juvenile delinquency, drug abuse, HIV/AIDS and STI’S, Reach Out have being visiting beneficiaries both at school and in their homes to measure the degree of success.

As we write to you, we are glad, we are happy your donations are making a difference and building our youth towards a better tomorrow in an emerging country.

These are our success stories:

Malize, a form 2 student of the Baptist High School in Buea is grateful for the lessons and material support received during the youth engagement program. "I can today excel and be amonsgt the best students in my class thanks to the counselling i received during the youth engagement program. I wish to be part of the program this 2014 again". Her progress records we reviewed revealed the truth in her confession.

The father of  Joel confessed that, he was motivated to borrow money to supplement what Reach Out Cameroon gave his son as back to school materials to make sure his son did not miss the academic year. To him, if someone else is concern about the education of your son, it should be worth sacrificing for.

Michael confessed that, he joined the health club of their school to learn more about HIV/AIDS, hygiene and sanitation and other health related issues thanks to the lessons learned during the Youth Engagement Program.

Thank you dear donors for continues support to  improving lives in our community. Expect our next report after the 2014 edition of the Youth Engagement Program.

Dear Donors,

We focused during this phase of our ongoing effort of making an impact on girls’ education in Cameroon to follow up and ensure proper implementatio as well as evaluate the impact of your donations on the lives of our target beneficiaries. So far, Reach Out Cameroon through your support has brought light to the lives of 36 girls in Tole and Bakweri town who are today “counting their blessings and naming them one by one”.

Based on assessment and the need, the capacity enhancement centre was extended to the heart of our beneficiary community- Tole to accommodate an after school progam for the underprivileged kids in the community as well as reduce the cost of transportation to the lone centre operated initially. Based on the trainings that were offered to the girls on HIV and AIDS, Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT), Family Planning, Nutritional counselling and Gender Based violence, the recent evaluation and follow up sessions proves the putting of knowledge into practice by the beneficiaries. They can now regulate their births, sponsor their children to school, take care of their personal needs as well as care for their aging parents.

In the current partners meet up by the Global Giving representative to Cameroon (Britt Lake), beneficiaries expressed their joy:

Vastina Nguti , “I never knew how to go about opening my own saloon but thanks to the grant given to me be my Reach Out Cameroon, I could sell the items, manage my business and invest more to start up my own beauty saloon” she confessed.

Mbah Esther, “Reach Out has taught me to be financially independent, not to only rely on my husband for all my needs. I pray other girls learn from me”

Clodine Manyi Tole “ I no longer have time to run after men for money. All I do is spend time on my business and think of improving it. Thanks a million to Reach Out Cameroon for empowering me economically”

Expect our next report in three months as we assure you your donations are creating an impact in the lives of our beneficiaries.
