Help Mbong's Dream Come True Scholarship

$320
Raised
Remaining
Rural areas in Cameroon do not have adequate schools, infrastructure and teachers to educate its underprivileged children who come from poor families or are orphaned. Rural parents and guardians have limited funds to support their families and their children's education. Consequently, they put their children to work in farms to meet financial needs instead of sending them to school. This project will help ensure that Mbong continues her schooling by providing her with a full scholarship.

The Door of Hope community in Freetown has over 25 active youths that are eager to receive computer proficiency training. Like tens of thousands of other youths in Sierra Leone, they have not received any instruction in or access to computers.

This will help position them for success.

eReaders can provide an African student the escape from the cycle of poverty and place them on a path toward a bright future. With eReaders students can obtain access to thousands of books in the palm of their hands, enriching their education and improving literacy. eReaders provide benefits to a student in Africa that books cannot provide. We need to come out of the old way of reading and to take advantage of technology to improve our students' lives and expose them to more opportunities.

During the Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone, teenage girls (particularly those orphaned when their families passed away) were out of school and more vulnerable to rape and sexual assault.

We take running water for granted. Unfortunately, the daily reality for the kids at the Dream Home is the opposite. They obtain water from water well. This process is labor-intensive and time consuming. By installing plumbing, a solar-powered water pump and water tank, the kids will benefit from piped water. This running water supply will enhance cleanliness, providing better health and sanitation for the kids.

According to UNICEF, girls continue to suffer severe disadvantage and exclusion in education systems throughout their lives. An estimated 31 million girls of primary school age and 32 million girls of lower secondary school age were out of school in 2013. Gender disparities increased in secondary and tertiary education. The majority of these girls live in sub-Saharan Africa. This project will help ensure that Christiana continues her schooling by providing her with a full scholarship.
