Send 35 Children to School for 1 Year in Cameroon

Oct 21, 2013

Helping Reduce Illiteracy in Cameroon-39 Students Sponsored in the 2013-2014 academic school year

BFF has intended to sponsor 35 children is primary and secondary
schools for 2013/2014 academic year. This is to help mitigate the
illiteracy rate in Cameroon society.

This intended children were to be drawn from marginalized or under
privileged backgrounds. On the whole we have many pupils and students
competing for this opportunity which is limited by the financial means
at our disposal.

Since last July BFF has been very busy on the field holding meetings
and scrutinizing the pupils and students' results. On the whole 39
students/pupils were finally selected instead of the  of the supposed
35 children. Out of this number 20 were from the secondary schools and
19 from the primary school.

For the students in the secondary school each of them received the sum
of 25000 francs ($50) as tuition and the pupils in the primary school
received the sums ranging from 13500 francs to 18000 francs ($27 to
$36) depending on the school. This money was spent on textbooks and
tuition for the deserving children.

In deed we are very delighted to our donors for the wonderful gesture
they made to help these poor children to be able to continue their
education. On be behalf the children,their school administrators and
BFF we wish to appreciate you very immensely for your support. Keep
being part of it and a child will always smile somewhere.

Thank you
