Summary

This project will sponsor socially and economically marginalized children by providing for their school fees, books and uniforms for one year. Better Family Foundation has worked with local schools and church groups to identify the most vulnerable children in our community-- these children show scholastic potential and come from homes where they either cannot afford or soon will not be able to afford the cost of school. With your help we will allow these children to receive a basic education!

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There are a many barriers prohibiting children from having access to even the most basic education here in Cameroon. Children from economically marginalized families are most at risk. Instead of going to school these children are forced into labor in order to help support their families. Other times families may only have enough money to send one child to school though all are eager, able and willing. Through this project at least 20 of these vulnerable children will be sponsored for one year.

How will this project solve this problem?

Better Family Foundation has worked with local schools and churches to identify children who show scholastic aptitude but do not have financial means to attend school. From those children identified BFF will select the at least 20 of the most vulnerable children and directly pay for their school fees, books and uniforms for one year. We will assist at least 10 primary school children and 10 secondary (high school) children-- the more funding we receive the more children we can sponsor!

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will have greater effects than just educating 20 vulnerable children. Providing education will help improve the general quality of life of not only those educated but those living in their community. The education provided can assist these students to make more informed life choices regarding healthy lifestyles and ultimately help end the cycle of poverty.
