Arriving on the 10th of March, the new Program Coordinator, Antonia Morzenti from United States was briefed on the previous activities of the TME program which has been underway in Buea since 2009. Antonia was given the assignment of working with Cameroonian social worker, Mr. Nzue Maxentius.

At the debut, nineteen teens were already identified in the village of Maumu and we moved from on from there.

Donors and Supporters,
We would like to express our heartfelt thanks from all of us at Social Development International and our beneficiaries. It has been your generous support, commitment and passion to help teenage mothers and family through education, training and production to develop themselves and care for their children.
In June 13, 2012, we were able to get our Tole Teenage Mothers Community Shop go functional with Art and Craft beauty products, designed and produced by teenage mothers themselves. Today they are proud young mothers able to showcase in their community what they are capable of doing, both as individuals and as a group- Proud and hardworking young mothers.
All these we could not achieve without your generous support. More grace to your elbow.
