Helping Reduce Illiteracy in Cameroon-39 Students Sponsored in the 2013-2014 academic school year
By Mbeng Simon Nsah - The Director of BFF
BFF has intended to sponsor 35 children is primary and secondary schools for 2013/2014 academic year. This is to help mitigate the illiteracy rate in Cameroon society.
This intended children were to be drawn from marginalized or under privileged backgrounds. On the whole we have many pupils and students competing for this opportunity which is limited by the financial means at our disposal.
Since last July BFF has been very busy on the field holding meetings and scrutinizing the pupils and students' results. On the whole 39 students/pupils were finally selected instead of the of the supposed 35 children. Out of this number 20 were from the secondary schools and 19 from the primary school.
For the students in the secondary school each of them received the sum of 25000 francs ($50) as tuition and the pupils in the primary school received the sums ranging from 13500 francs to 18000 francs ($27 to $36) depending on the school. This money was spent on textbooks and tuition for the deserving children.
In deed we are very delighted to our donors for the wonderful gesture they made to help these poor children to be able to continue their education. On be behalf the children,their school administrators and BFF we wish to appreciate you very immensely for your support. Keep being part of it and a child will always smile somewhere.
