UNICEF reported that 85% of Cameroon children attend primary school, but only about 53% continue to secondary school. A 2010 study on “the effects of educational attainment on poverty reduction in Cameroon” showed that continued education decreases a person’s likelihood of ending up in poverty. The study also found a relationship between poverty and education in Cameroon.

Poverty can make it harder for people to attend school, and a lack of education can cause “low-income levels,” leading to poverty. The Cameroon Education Plan, wrapped up in 2020 and though that program has been completed, Cameroon continues to implement the Cameroon Education Plan to continue improving its education system. One of the solutions of the Plan we are at the Denis Miki Foundation work to support is to;

  • Encourage inventive ways of teaching to improve the quality of education

We use mentorship, coaching, study partners, home learning, extra classes and financial assistance as methods for supporting the education of children in Cameroon and across Africa.

Our commitment this year 2023 is to;

1. Assist girls who are in Examination classes but may miss out because of lack of finances to register as a result of hardship and poverty through financial assistance that will cover their registration fee.

2. Support struggling students who need home learning and extra classes to support their studies but cannot afford the cost for these follow up programs.

3. School Fees Support for pupils and students who remain out of the classroom because of hardships and lack of finances to pay School Fees. 

We have seen massive changes in the lives of the children, girls and young people who have been beneficiaries of our different educational programs across the years and we believe with you all supporting us and spreading the word of our work around your network we will together continue to Impact Lives and make the world a better place for the future generation.

In Cameroon there is an un-ending inter-generational cycle of poverty which greatly affects the lives of girls from poor backgrounds and under-served communities. Most of whom are either orphans, victims of conflict, victims of different forms of gender based violence and high levels of dependency and school drop-outs.

Our DMF programmes to promote education have created platforms for us to partner with local communities and school institutions to run clubs in schools and local communities for the promotion of the rights of the girl child especially her right to education.

Promoting the realization of girls’ rights, we know that safe, inclusive and gender-responsive education is essential to future prosperity, gender equality, and ending to the inter-generational cycle of poverty.

In the last quarter we have launched one new school club in the town of Buea and continued activities with previous partner schools and also local communities.

We now have over 200 girls as members of our Her Voice Clubs who are in-turn running community development and empowerment programs among their peers.

We continually rely on goodwill donations and support from donors like you and will be happy to see you make a kind donation this day to support our efforts to empower the girl child.

Impact Report

Our DMF Education Fund supports the education of vulnerable Cameroonian children and youth especially girls. Kendrick a 3 years old boy lost his father in 2019 and has been left to his mother Winifred who is a temporal Cleaner where she sweeps and weeds the streets of Limbe.

Like Kendrick vulnerable children and youth supported through the Education Fund depend on the educational assistance brought forth through;

  1. Scholarship assistance to be able to pay for school fees and tuition
  2. Provision of basic school needs like books, bags, uniforms, shoes and toileteries.
  3. Health and social assistance
  4. Cash support for feeding
  5. Cash support for transportation

Through the last quarter of 2020, DMF was able to provide direct assistance to a total of 10 children and youth by help of the Education Fund.


As we move into 2021 with gratitude for life through 2020 which was a very difficult year globally we call on you to remember these vulnerable children and youth we support by virtue of your kind donations. Please do well to continue with us on this journey to #ImpactLives by making a kind donation today.
