Dear Project Supporters, 

Thank you for your ongoing support of the future leaders in Cameroon.  The below report is an update from the field.

Dear supporters,

We are thrilled to share exciting news with you. Thanks to your generous support, we have been able to complete the construction and refurbishment of two additional classrooms in Bitame Lucia for this academic year. The classrooms are fully ready as you can see the students in the classrooms. We would like to take this opportunity to offer our heartfelt gratitude to each of you for your unprecedented generosity during such a difficult period of the COVID-19 pandemic. We do understand how it is difficult for each of us these days and how humanity has been severely suffering from this challenge. 

You can all see the excitement on the children’s faces, as they started the new school year in a clean and more beautiful compound than last year. The administration has been working tirelessly to make sure children are comfortable despite COVID 19. 

We would like to take this opportunity to once again offer our heartfelt appreciation to our generous donors and supporters from around the world. God bless you all! 

Sincerely,

AJOMUZU  Collette NDOBE

Founder/Executive Director

Dear Project Supporters, 

Thank you for your ongoing support of the future leaders in Cameroon.  The below report is an update from the field. 

Dear Friends/Supporters/Partners,

Hope and trust that you are all doing well and keeping safe during this Covid 19 period. Firstly, I want to thank you all for your continuous support of our education programs, especially during these hard times. We are indebted to all of your generosity.

Three months have quickly passed by, and we are here again to let you all know the schools are going on summer vacation, after spending 9 months studying. We acknowledge your entire financial and materials donation and we are grateful.

This last quarter of the school year was not an easy year because of COVID 19 and the uncertainty of the school year. Parents were afraid of school closures, as the case in March, when the government of Cameroon suddenly short down all schools and left children stranded because of Covid. However, that was not the case this year.

Some of the activities carried out by the school this quarter ranges from the Environmental program, where trees were planted in the community, celebrating Cameroon National day on the 20th of May, activities such as sports, cooking, dancing, and music competition took place during that celebration.

Our library project supported with books from Develop Africa Inc. has reached close to 2000 people in our community over the years. Those who benefit more from the library project are university students, professors, teachers, students, and the community at large. These students and communities are achieving because of donors like you who make our work possible.  Thanks to donations on GlobalGiving, we have expanded our library program

We are grateful for the continued support of our Education Project which is creating an impact in our community and on the lives of children. Thank you for helping provide the joy, wonder, and knowledge of books and for paving the way for a lifetime of reading.

As the next academic year begins in September 2021, we count on your continued support in providing scholarships to some internally displaced children in our school.

Sincerely,

AJOMUZU  Collette NDOBE

Dear Project Supporters, 

Thank you for your ongoing support of the future leaders in Cameroon.  The below report is an update from the field. 

Dear Donors and Partners,

Greetings and best wishes from Cameroon.

We want to sincerely thank you for your contributions despite the hard times caused by Covid 19 and the falling economy affecting us all at this period.

It hasn’t been an easy period for schools and students in Cameroon, especially Bitame Lucia School (BLIS)

All schools in Cameroon were closed on March 19, 2020, with only the classes preparing for the exams in late July opening up for a month in June. Our examination class students were allowed to use the school library, but social distancing was advised. The textbooks and materials we had received from Develop Africa have greatly enriched the knowledge of our students during the lockdown.

When schools reopened in October, several restrictions were passed and lots of cancelation of some national days were suspended like the Youth Day, excursions to some important sites in Cameroon, and other gathers. The Covid-19 emergency exacerbates even further the structural challenges and humanitarian impact on education systems. The spread of the pandemic has compelled the education partners to put on hold the planned education activities and focus on response to the pandemic. For students who love to play and interact, the academic year becomes boring.

When an invitation from a neighboring school recently came for them to play football and handball, the students quickly grasped the opportunity to interact once more. There were several matches between the girls and the boys. 

Our work continues to grow because of donors like you. Your support allows us to offer our many empowerment programs. Thank you for being there for us always!

Sincerely,

AJOMUZU  Collette NDOBE

Sanitizing the School
Sanitizing the School

Dear Project Supporters, 

We greatly appreciate the support you have shown for students in Cameroon at the Bitame Lucia International School (BLIS), especially now throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.  Your support is helping to provide students and teachers with masks and soap so they can attend school safely.  More than 300 children and their teachers have returned to school since their institutions were closed to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Respect for COVID-19 barrier measures is followed in the schools.  The entire school was sanitized and all the teachers took a COVID -19 test before returning to school.  The older students read rules and regulations to be respected by everybody in school. All the students and pupils have new rules to follow. Each class has washing points with buckets and soaps and the teachers must put a facemask and all  students as well

Your support is making a difference for students in Cameroon. You can make your impact go even further by starting a monthly recurring donation here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way. Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

Dear Project Supporters, 

We greatly appreciate the support you have shown for students in Cameroon at the Bitame Lucia International School (BLIS).  Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, students have resumed classes with social distancing and obligatory masks to ensure everyone’s safety.

We are happy the schools have reopened and that education is slowly resuming and getting back on track.

After a review during these unprecedented times, we have decided to streamline our fundraising efforts. We have decided to phase out some project listings here on GlobalGiving - particularly the ones that have not been as successful. This will help us to be more efficient and make better use of our time.

With this in mind, we will be phasing out this project shortly. 

Should you be interested in supporting another youth or education-related project here on GlobalGiving, we warmly invite you to join us in educating leaders in Sierra Leone.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to email us at globalgiving@developafrica.org.

 

With great appreciation,

Amy & The Develop Africa Team
