Dear Friends and Supporters

Happy New Year 2013!!

At CAPEC we seek to be agents for change on behalf of children. Change, in many forms has certainly been the by-word for year ending 2012.  CAPEC as its beneficiaries has witnessed many changes and development in the lives of the children we serve. Though it has been a very challenging year, it has been extremely rewarding for CAPEC.  You all have shown phenomenal support despite a troubled economy that continues to affect us all. Your steadfast commitment has helped CAPEC remain one of the leading Children’s organisations in Cameroon. We are incredibly grateful for your ongoing support.

For the last three months, the school and children have been involved in lots of educational programs and projects such as:

-Christmas Party
-UK/Kenya delegation visit
-Inauguration for a new classroom built by the US Embassy,Cameroon

The Management of CAPEC, the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and staff of Bitame Lucia School organized a successful Christmas party for all the kids at School. The kids were all given gifts place under the Christmas tree and a special lunch in school. We thank Patrick Jurgen from Germany who posed as Santa Claus. Activities associated with this program were the singing of Christmas Carols, drama; reading of poems and performance of ballet dance by class four etc. We ended the occasion with a group picture.

Our school was also privileged to host some Kenya and UK teachers who visited under the Connecting Classroom Project. While in school, they taught in different classroom, planted trees, and we had launch with them.  On our part, we presented drama and a welcome song.

On Tuesday November 20, 2012, Political Officer Luke Ortega took part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to inaugurate a classroom constructed under the Ambassador’s Special Self Help (SSH) Program. The classroom will serve orphans and children from low-income families enrolled in the Bitame Lucia Primary School, Nkolfoulou village, on the outskirts of Yaounde. (

We sincerely thank you for all your support over 2012 and we look forward to your on-going support in 2013.
