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 $91:
One 50 kg Bag of rice, seven tablets of washing soap, two rolls of powered washing soap, ten sachets of tomato paste, one packet of maggi cubes, and five litres of cooking groundnut oil.
We are able to do all this with your hard earned money you donated..
Thank you for your generosity in helping the poorest of the poor in our community.
From our last report, we supported 32 children in Tole, among these children is Blaise. Who has made an exemplary result to class 4. Showing that your resources were well invested in our future leaders. This year we have include the junior sister – Marie Stella who is 6 years and still to see the doors of primary education because of the disadvantage position of the family. Two of them will be going to school with full scholarship support from Social Development International costing US$ 300 for the two to get one year primary education.
Blaise and Marie-Stella were born under normal conditions. They developed normally and had not suffered from any serious health problem until last year that they were both victims of cholera attack. Blaise started school in the year 2010, and is going to primary 4 next year academic year. He made a good result, coming out 4th in his class of 40, going to class 4, thanks to the partial educational support he got from Social Development International.
Marie-Stella is yet to start her primary education at the beginning of this academic year. This family has a monthly income that falls below the poverty threshold. The parents are poor handicapes and cannot adequately provide for the feeding and educational needs for their children. Their father is very advanced in age while the children still have a long way to go as regard their education and social development.
There is need for continuous educational support for Blaise and Marie-stella from the secondary network, without this, we see no future for these children’s education which I foresee might be terminated before they complete their primary education.
From the above observations, complete educational assistance for Blaise and Marie-Stella from Social Development International is a priority.
Also we teach the parents family planning, home management and sanitation skills, and family life education to improve on their living conditions for social development of the children.
Dear Friends, Donors and Supporters,
We have crowned 2012/2013 acamemic year with 32 needy children benefiting with school fees support worth US Dollars 360:00. The 32 children were selected as a result of not being able to complete their school fees in three confectionary primary schools all in Tole Village (Baptist Primary School, Catholic Primary School and Presbyterian Primary School ) and they risked not writing their end of year examination.
10 children from Baptist Primary School, 10 Catholic Primary School and 12 children from Presbyterian Primary School benefitted from the schools fees support, thanks to donations from Global Giving.The parents and guardians are subsistenece farmers who cannot afford two square meals a day. We paid complete school fees for two children at US Dollar 30:00 per child and completed fees for 30 children at US Dollar 10:00 each.
From 32 beneficiaries, 2 children benefitted complete school fees are from Presbyterian Primary School; their father is handicapped and mother subsistence farmer. This family withdrew their eldest girlchild from Presbyterian primary school and gave for housemate job; because they cannot afford the cost of registartion for the end of primary school examinations (Common Entrance and First School Leaving Certificate Examinations ) registration,,, A pathetic story to believe!
It should be noted that in Cameroon, The Government support universal free primary education and there are no school fees in Government primary schools but confectionary and lay private education primary Schools charge minimal fees per child.
We look forward to your continued support in reaching the melliunuim development goals,,,Education for All
We appreciate your generous donations of your hard earned cash, without which we could not have achieved what we are show casing now. More grace to your elbow... Donors and Global Giving!!
