Progress Report on Provide Education for 100 Orphans in Cameroon

No tongue can express the wonderful progress that this project has been recorded. This is because of the efforts that we employed. The last disubursement  which was the highest that this project has ever received took us to a  very high level.  This encouraged all our volunteers, holiday students and all the staff members including the community to join participate actively in the project

50% of the disbursed money was used for buying wood for the completion of the framework for the last rooms in addition to iron rods, cement, sand and technical labour. We were able to do a lot in the project as you can see from the project pictures.

In fact we are very much delighted to report that within the last one month much has been done because of our financial support.

We are looking forward to do the final decking of the first phase on the 8th of August, if  we can raise some money to buy at least 70 bags of cement and timber for the final form work. 

We thank those who have been supporting this project and just like Oliver Twist would always do, we wish to inform  all who have shown interest in this project to give us another  touch. For those who are yet to discover this project to do support should be doing so with great assurance and confidence that all the donation are 100% directed to the project.

We may be able to come up with a video for the community decking exercise of the 8th of September through YouTube.

Thanks to every one who have been supporting this project and those that still to. 

May God Bless you.

PROGRESS REPORT ON PROVIDING EDUACTION FOR 100 ORPHANS IN CAMEROON

We are very delighted to report on this Project. Since the last disbursement, a lot of progress has been made. Though after exhausting the funds, some local fund raising was made. The funds were used for buying some cement and iron rods to cover the library section.

At this point in time, we have received a disbursement from Global Giving from one visitor who visited the Project and was very much impressed.

He visited the OVcs in the present dilapidated and in-conducive site and then the Construction Project.

We are expecting to move a step with his donations.

We are progressing with the available resources. Thanks to all our previous and current supporters.

We would like to report that the first phase has gone above 50% and if we are are still working on gaining support, so that this first phase is completed and put to use by September 2012. We give a lot of thanks to the lone donor of the month to the tune of 800 USD, which we have just received and looking forward to taking another great progress in the project.

It is our pleasure to report on the progressive nature of the Project Provide Education for 100 Orphans in Cameroon.

We were caught up by the dry season after moving a giant step with the last disbursement.

We were able to make the form work, buy some iron rods, paid the technicians to work on the Decking work.

We continue to receive Volunteers who are grateful to see where your support is going and actually what it is used for.

Below are the most recent Volunteers from UK who really appreciate the work with the Children in the rented apartment.

Rains have come again and hopefully we are soon to resume the decking work again.

However, we still need some support to enable us get on with the work and to eventually complete the first phase of the project.   We are really very grateful to all our donors and wish them all the blessings.

PROGRESS REPORT ON PROVIDE EDUCATION TO 100 ORPHANED AND VULNERABLE CHILDREN

Within the last three months and after the last disbursement we have been  able to do much on the Construction Project.  This is in a struggle to provide Education to at least 100 orphaned and vulnerable children yearly. We wish to appreciate the Global Giving and Donors and supporters of this project.

All the Orphaned and vulnerable children  currently receiving training in the present unconducive structure were very happy to see and participate in the  project.  They participated and contributed enomousely in terms of labour.

We received a visitor  who knew us through Stuff your Rucksack website and visited the project as you can see in the attached project pictures.

We also embarked on local fundraising before recording this jiant step.  Since it needs quite a reasonable sum of money to deck the whole building once, we decided to partition the  decking work in to two phases.

The first phase is currently going on with the available resources and progressively. We are still soliciting for our donors to use their face books and even the Project Page to recommend this project for support to enable us complete and put the building in to use by May 2012.

 The Pictures here shows the work at the top of the building (Primliminary works) and another one shows our visitor from US who was very satisfied with the project and another shows the inner part of the building.

Thank you once more  and May God Bless you through out this Christmas season.

PROGRESS REPORT ON PROVIDING EDUCATION FOR 100 ORPHANS IN CAMEROON

We are delighted to give another report with sincere thanks to our donors and especially to Meg Dallet and Laurel Chor (GlobalGiving Visitors) July 2011.

We are convinced that their reports presented in our Projects site gave the donors the realities and in conformity with our previous reports. Since they left, we were anxiously waiting for funds to get on with the work.

The students resumed studies on the 12th of September after a three months long Holidays. They did much on the project together with the caregivers. They kept the project cleaned and worked on the road to the site.

Finally we received a disbursement of 290 US dollars equivalent to 131,000frs. With this, we were able to buy 0ne trip of sand at the cost of 120,000frs and with the local Fundraising, we added and brought the poles that were bought with the previous funds.

These poles are to be used in supporting the Form work of the Decking. Since we were not able to complete the 1st phase, we are still in the rented premises which is not conducive at all.

Now that students have come back from Holidays, we have again got human resources and more work shall be done. Once we are able to receive another disbursement, as we are also struggling with local Fund raising, we will be able to do much.

I wish to thank all the donors for their wonderful support. We will continue to do our best as we progress with the fund raising
