Give the Gift of Education-Sponsor an Orphan Child

by Self Reliance Promoters' NGO

Dear All,

Here again is a progress report on Give a Gift of Education to an orphaned child.   Finally the Academic year  has come to an end.    We were able to  teach a total of  82 students in the school  this year.

The  donations to this project  really help in many dimensions. A few  real desparate ones were given some basic school needs, Uniforms etc.

To those of you who might have sopported some years ago, the picture attached shows the graduates who have completed their course in Soft ware,  computerised accounting and  Computer hard ware.

Sandrine in the picture was able to present an accounting problem using the Fifo method during the open door day which brought together community members and teachers and students from other instituions to come and witness what SeReP does. Computer practicals, accounting presentations, Music, Hard ware, arts and craft work.

I am glad  to report that  there are still many orphaned knocking our doors for admission next year.  Like the case attached  Melvis is  12 years old.  She lost her father when she was 3 and the mother is infected and all the little resources ares are being directed towards imrproving the mother's health. There are many and we are looking forwards to increasing the intake since there is enough space.

I very much externd my sincere thanks to thos  who have been supporting this project of sponsoring children.

Help us increase the numbers of orphans that really needs help.

Ladies and Gentlemen,


We have continued to give quality vocational training to your sponsord trrainees. This has been the most busy period just because of your continues support.Your support has taken us so high in that the children have experienced a lot of changes in the training.Stability and adequate and ready educational needs.

This time the school was invited to attend a forum organized by the goverment of Cameroon among other unemployment issued and congratulated us for the type of training we are giving the less privileged students. Here picture attached.

We have also been shortlisted by the Cameroon ministry of education as one of the quality training school aimed at giving professional training towards selfemployment and employment.

We equally received two volunteers from Uk who came out to work with these children and we extended the programme callled KeyholeGardens and taught other schools on how to build such gardens both in the schools and for individuals to also build in their various homes to imrpove nutritional diets. (Piture attached)

The chidlren practiced and participated in the Cammeroon youth day celebration and took the first prize. It was ajob well don and the children are now very hapy with the way things are moving.

At this moment they have just finished with their sequential assesement and to be given Easterbreak soon.  They are all happy  with our German volunteer from I.B Germany who is giving them a lot of practicalities on various hand works e.g. preparing some docorative cards,and Christmass cards to be sold in Germany  duing Christmass to send the funds raised for material to continue production.

I will therefore sieze this opportunity to thank all those  who have been supporting this on going project and at the same time calling on those who wish to support this project to do so without and doubt of what their hard earned money is going.

We have equally worked on the new school and have created enought space for more of these needy children to e admitted next year.  Please count your self blessed by choosing to follow our cause in sponsoring an orhaned childre now against next academic year.

Just send your support now to enable us know how may of such children can be admitted.

Thank you for visiting our report page again.  For your information, we are based  in the rural part of Cameroon - Africa and our elctricity supply is not very reliable.  This makes us to delay in our reports. However, we happy to have another opportunity to report at this moment.

This first term  whis occupied the period of September up to this moment was a very busy and exciting one in the school as new orphaned and vulnerable ones were increasingly admitted to join the old ones.  

We noted that there was a great change in those who came in from very interio areas and have ben well integrated inot the school system.

I am delighted to report that our IB German volunteer is doing her best especially with the new intake who could not read and write on admission.  

We just finished writing the first semister exams and are preparing for a Christmas party.  In this Christmas party, Miss Sara has prepared them with songs and Dramas to presented on  the 18th of December before giving them a Christmas break.

We are very grateful with those who have continued to support this on going project and giving hope to those who must have lost in the aspect of education and care.  Your donations are doind a wonderful job as we continue to ensure qualy provision of education to those you are helping through Global giving and us.

May God continue to bless you as you sensitize other relatives and ffriends to support your cause.


Remain Blessed.

Dear all,

I am again alive to report on this lufty project. The last three months was a long holiday in Cameroon.

We took this period to move in villages to identify more desperate orphanned and vulnerable children for admission.

So far, we were able to identify 10 new real desperate ones and we are preparing the uniforms and school needs.

The school has just re-opened and we glad to report that all the old students have come.

If there is any one who wish to continue supporting the training through this project, we would really keep going.

We are also encouraging interested sponsors to visit our GLobal giving page and support this project.

Yours faithfully.

The donations were well managed to ensure that all  who were desparately in need of support during the academic year were directed towards helping  receive qualitify vocation education.   Many of them did very well with the exams and they are looking forward to getting to their new classes come September 2014.

At the moment there are two volunteers from Original volunteers to  handle them with Holiday classes during the months of July to august 15th.     The are really realy very gratful receing their education steadily with the school needs.

I am very grateful again  to  report that we had a wonderful graduation where some of the beneficiaries were graduating after spending four years with us and  were able to write their end  of course diploma exams.

Graduation took place on the 26th of May  here aur volunteers did presentations with thanks to Global giving for creating this opportunity where  less priviledged ones are supported to have a gift of Education through Self Reliance Promoters NGO.

Thirteen of  them wrote Cameroon General Certificate Exams (technical) and we are waiting for good results in  August. Thanks to all those who supported them through out.

We Thank all those who have been supporting this children immensely and pray that as we graduate every year more are admitted and this project is on going.
