Dear Friends, Donors and Supporters,

We have crowned 2012/2013 acamemic year with 32 needy children benefiting with school fees support worth US Dollars 360:00. The 32 children were selected as a result of not being able to complete their school fees in three confectionary primary schools all in Tole Village (Baptist Primary School, Catholic Primary School and Presbyterian Primary School ) and they risked not writing their end of year examination.

10 children from Baptist Primary School, 10 Catholic Primary School and 12 children from Presbyterian Primary School benefitted from the schools fees support, thanks to donations from Global Giving.The parents and guardians are subsistenece farmers who cannot afford two square meals a day. We paid complete school fees for two children at US Dollar 30:00 per child and completed fees for 30 children at US Dollar 10:00 each.

From 32 beneficiaries, 2 children benefitted complete school fees are from Presbyterian Primary School; their father is handicapped and mother subsistence farmer. This family withdrew their eldest girlchild from Presbyterian primary school and gave for  housemate job; because they cannot afford the cost of registartion for the end of primary school examinations  (Common Entrance and First School Leaving Certificate Examinations ) registration,,, A pathetic story to believe!

It should be noted that in Cameroon, The Government support universal free primary education and there are no school fees in Government primary schools but confectionary and lay private education primary Schools charge minimal fees per child.

We look forward to your continued support in reaching the melliunuim development goals,,,Education for All

We appreciate your generous donations of your hard earned cash, without which we could not have achieved what we are show casing now. More grace to your elbow... Donors and Global Giving!!

Attached are pictures and thank you notes from the schools' administrators for your perusal;;;;see where and how your money is spent; 

Thank you
