Self Reliance Promoters' NGO

SEREP is a non-profit, non-governmental organization situated in Kumbo, Bui Division, North West Region of Cameroon. The area is ranked as amongst the least developed nationally, with limited infrastructure, high birth rate, high unemployment, as well as a high level of HIV/AIDS transmission and widespread poverty. This distressing situation prompted the formation of SEREP in 1997 with an aim of addressing the social problems caused by such and to Serve the underprivileged ones without boundaries. We work in several projects which are identified in accordance with the felt needs of the people and friendly to the environment. Orphaned and Vulnerable children's education remain our top pri...

Yes, time has come again for another progress report regarding the Give the Gift of Education-sponsor and Orphan children in Cameroon. Primarily I have the honour to thank all those who have made this project lively waxing well progressively.

From the pictures attached no one can doubt about the happiness and hope that has so been reinstated on these children who must have lost hope. They have been receiving their lessons very well, and with the help and continutes presence of the volunteers and our local staff that have had enough capacity building on how to take catre or orphaned children, a lot has been achieved.

We were able to make new benches and they have been put into use by those who did not even have spave to sit in the classes that have provided.

The German volunteers who came in to teach for one year are also doing the best in the teaching of English and Mathematics.

I am glad to reassure those who supported this project in the past to rest assured that their hard earned money has gone a long way to serve the purpose for which it was designated and now there are some children wearing smiling faces because of them.

For those who would like to support this project, I call on you to do so without any doubt and can contact us directly for any other information or details about the project.

May God the almighty bless all who have been supporting this project and also direct those who wish to extend their charitable hands to the less privildeged to us.

Progress report on Empower Women in Rural Cameroon - Palm Oil Project

 

The Palm oil project which is an initiative to empower women to be able to raise capaital for themselves, fight against poverty amongs them, and also  acting as a unifying factor for  them to receive  support from each other  remain very active with the little capital that we have.

Since August, there was a progressive decline in the supply of the Palm oil thereby, reducing the quantity that our capital  was sypplying in the past.

The prices continued  skyrocating till date and this is making it difficult for some women to receive the little oil and pay on time.   This is a clear indication that the objective of striving to raise capital for SeReP to infuture keep on buying in bulk the the supply in much and releasing them at the cheapest prices possible with the supply declines is something to work hard towards raising funds for this project.

However, we continued to work with the pilot groups even though with reduced  quantity to all the groups, they are still very happy that the prices are still below the market price.   

Our volunteers continued to work with the women  in their various groups and educating them on proper book keeping. Nancy and Laura from Uk did their best to review the project accoung and also did some updates and other ways which the central accounting system for the project should be run.

The Fulani (Bororo women) are really  benefiting for this project and we are also very satisfied with  the way the project is helping the women very well.

We pray the the project should in future have enough capaitl to get on well and to extend to other groups.

We sincerely thank those who have supported this project in the past and call on those are yet to join the course of  helping these women to do so without and hesitation.

Predencia one of our volunteer has been assigned to work with this groups and collect enough pictures for the project.  I regret to inform you that we have tried to attach the ones that we hav enow and our lines are terrible.  It takes us many days to have a pictures attached.  We are in the real rural area of Cameroon and access to this is not very easy.

May God Bless all of you.

ladies and Gentlement.  I am very delighted to report that this project is going on  well.  It is one of the vibrant project that we have at the moment.  It is very  chalenging and very dear to the entire commuity of Kumbo.

In the three months we have been able to do alot not only depending on the funds from global giving but we also tried to fundrais locally. 

With total involvement of our volunteers from Uk. Jamaika, and Germany, we have moved a gigantic step.  We have been able to put up three class rooms and two office.  

The pictures here attached shows how progressise the project is and the joy of you out there who have been able to support the project with what sover little was contributedby all of you.

Our problem now is roofing, plastering of the walls, cementing of the floors, fittings and painting. After all these must have been done we will proceed to the making of benches for the empty classrooms for the children.

I am happy to report that the students themselves did much work as they were hapy to see us working hard for them to have a very conducie environment for their studies and for the future generation.

We therefore call upon all those who wish to support this project to do so without fear of facour and rest assured that providing education to someone especialy the orphaned and culnerable child is giving food for life.

May God contiue to bless of of you who have supported this project in one way or ther orther whiel calling on those who wll like to suport to do without any doubt of where their hard earned money is going.

We believe that one day the project wil be completed.
