A microproject by Reach Out Cameroon (REO)
Vetted

Summary

Marie, 21, single mother of a three year old, Brandon, is living with her parents and 5 siblings. She became pregnant at a very tender age and dropped out of school. After she could not go back because her family could not support her economically. Reach Out Cameroon started working with her and gave her a small grant to start a business. That same year she paid herself through the last grade of secondary school, and never stopped doing business after that. Now you can help her go beyond.

Challenge

Marie wants to get a 1 year diploma " I can't do three years, we need money now. " but although she's made impressive progress and can claim profits of more than 50$ a day on a good market day, she is now providing for her whole family and can't save up to the total sum she needs. Without any government sponsorship, a wonderful mind, a changemaker, is condemned to never go beyond secondary education in her life.

Solution

A bright and determined young lady and an excellent student, she just needs a break so she can excel. This microproject will pay for her education for a 1 year degree. At age 21 is she's a bread winner for a family of 7 and has the business know-how of somebody twice her age. This is a potential change-maker in her community, she is the solution to lift herself and her family out of poverty. You can help her now.

Long-Term Impact

Education is the best road out of poverty.In a few years time we will be talking of somebody not only taking care of her family, but also employing others. Her fees will be paid and she will continue her education. She was born ready to perfom and get the best results she can, she won't disappoint you.
