Friends and Donors,

A twenty-two years old proven Touch-type Read and Spell (TTRS) is highly successful at improving reading, writing, spelling and self esteem of pupils and children of Bonduma village in Buea through the medium of touch-typing in a unique, multi-sensory, dyslexia-friendly way at the Teenage Mothers Institute, Buea. TTRS multi-sensory, dyslexia friendly computer course designed to improve reading, writing and spelling skills through the medium of touch-typing from - https://readandspell.com.


This pilot phase kicked off on March 26th, 2014 and will end on April 29th, 2014. Two instructors were trained to handle the training of the Children at our Teenage Mothers Institute Multi Media Center.
Twenty-seven pupils from Government School – G.S Bonduma I and Government Bilingual Practicing School – GBPS Bonduma) participated. Two hours of learning period each working day of the week (Mondays to Fridays) is a structured program of phonics and aims to develop literacy skills, confidence, self-esteem and motivation of children to read and spell with ease through the internet.


Twenty-seven children from Government School – G.S Bonduma I and Government Bilingual Practicing School – GBPS Bonduma) participated in the pilot phase with the registration of 18 and 9 (27) pupils of classes 4, 5 and 6 respectively. The pupils were very pleased with the program and performed positively as there were 22 pupils who scored a 100% in some Modules of each Level and just one pupil recorded a score of less than 50%, that is 41% at the first Module of Level one. In all, the TTRS program is composed of 24 Levels with each having 30 Modules. Most of the pupils due to the Easter Break completed/ended the program at the third Level while the very slow ones are still in Level one.
Computer skills and internet access are directly related with poverty eradication and social development for the underprivileged, underserved children and their communities.


While Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is a compulsory subject in Cameroon, did you know that many children and youth never get the chance to learn basic computer skills through an actual computer?
Our goal is to go mobile on Wheels with laptops and TTRS to reach rural communities. We need to create the learning environment which will enable underprivileged and underserved children connected with our ever-changing, digital world of information.


Quality Education is Children’s Right.
Let support our future leaders with quality education in our communities, we can do it.

Orphans and Vulnerable Children After School Class

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.

Dear Friends and Donors,

The 2013/2014 academic year for basic and secondary education started in Cameroon September 02, 2013.

We engaged on sending these two children to complete their primary school education- Blaise in Class four and Marie Stella in class one. These are children of poor and handicapped farming parents in Tole village. Full scholarship , nutrition and sanitation support was approved for them based on the social inquiry we get from our social worker.

We purchased text books, exercisee books, shoes, uniforms, school bags, pay school fees- as they are in a mission school,  and didactic materials for schooling worth US$ 355.

After two months, we went back to the field on Monday November 04. 2013 to monitor Marie-Stella and Blaise progress. We assessed their living, psychological and educational situation.

They are doing well, but still need follow up at home, their nutrition and sanitation need to be improved upon if we are to get them up from their present predicament.

With these development, we made a decision to to get them food, nutritional and sanitation items worth US $91:

One 50 kg Bag of rice, seven tablets of washing soap, two rolls of powered washing soap, ten sachets of tomato paste, one packet of maggi cubes, and five litres of cooking groundnut oil.

We are able to do all this with your hard earned money you donated..

Thank you for your generosity in helping the poorest of the poor in our community.
