Dear Project Supporters, 

We greatly appreciate your continued support that is making a difference for students in Cameroon at the Bitame Lucia International School (BLIS).  Amid the Covid 19 pandemic, schools resumed on June 1, 2020 in Cameroon. More than six million children are in school at the moment, but as soon as they are through with their public exams, schools will be closed for the summer and are scheduled to reopen on October 5, 2020.

The Class 6 pupils and form five students are presently going to school, respecting social distancing, with 24 students per classroom. Thanks in part to your ongoing support every student has received a face mask and hand sanitizer to help them prevent Covid 19.  In addition to that, a thermoflash and hand-washing buckets are given to each class. It is required for students and teachers to wear protective masks. The Prime Minister stressed, “prevention is and remains the main weapon available to each and every one of us.”

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.

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

 

With great appreciation,

Dear Project Supporters, 

We greatly appreciate your continued support that is making a difference for students in Cameroon at the Bitame Lucia International School (BLIS). Thanks to your ongoing support several classes got to enjoy field trips these past few weeks.  

The class 3 pupils got to visit ECO PARK Yaounde where they had a tour in the zoo section of the Park and learn about various species of animals and they had the opportunity to feed the fish and also enjoy a horse ride around the park. They also learned about other services offered by the Park. 

The class 4 and class 5 students visited the Nsimalen International Airport, they were fascinated by the splendor of the place: the tracks of planes; the vast car parks, the presence of several security guards, and a few parked planes. They went on a guided tour of various rooms, the airport lobby, along the esplanade, and close to the tarmac at the airport borders, where a private jet took off in front of them. They thoroughly enjoyed their field trip and lesson on air travel.

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,

Your continued support of students in Cameroon is greatly appreciated. Collette Bekaku, Founder/Executive Director CAPEC Cameroon partnered with her church, the United Methodist Women Association Cameroon – UMWAC and Develop Africa to create a project called “One child, one pencil” to collect and ship school supplies to students in Cameroon.

The shipping was covered by generous donors like you. Thanks to your support, school supplies including exercise books, pen, pencils, erasers, sharpeners, rulers, bookbinders, pencil case, and school bags were shipped in drums to Cameroon. They were then distributed to 6 schools by the UMWAC and Collette. You can see more photos in this photo album of the distribution- https://developafrica.smugmug.com/Students-in-Cameroon-Receive-School-Supplies/

Your support is truly 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,

Your continued support of students in Cameroon is greatly appreciated. Collette Bekaku, Founder/Executive Director CAPEC Cameroon sent the below update.

Dear Friends/supporters/partners,

First, I want to thank you all for your continuous support for our education programs. We are indebted to you.

With the education material donated by Develop Africa Inc and GlobalGiving donors, nearly all of our students/pupils went home with school supplies by the end of the school year.

 During the 3 months of Summer holidays, we were fortunate to have several activities from sporting activities, computer programs, dancing and singing activities.

Summer camp is important because it offers a structured opportunity for children to grow. Kids go from home to school to extracurricular, with each environment contributing to their development. Summer camp is a unique venue for growth, allowing kids to become independent and self-confident, while socializing and making new friends, and even learning new skills.

We were also lucky to have some dynamic students from the Faculty of Arts and Culture from the University Of Yaoundé 1. They visited our ongoing holiday classes and had some activities in school. The team was headed by Cyrielle, a Mandela Fellow alumna. With Grants from the State Department, the students are working on incorporating Civic engagement into the curriculum. We were also happy to welcome one of our past volunteers- Adam.

In a few weeks, we’ll start a new academic year 2019/2020. We would be so grateful to continue to receive your support through this upcoming school year.

Kind Regards,

AJOMUZU Collette NDOBE

Founder/Executive Director CAPEC

Dear Project Supporters,

Thank you for your continued support that helped ship 4 drums of school supplies to Bitame Lucia International School (BLIS). The students and staff were so thankful for the school supplies. The manager, headteacher, and students expressed their gratitude in this video saying-

My name is Leonard, the manager of Bitame Lucia International School.  I want to take this opportunity to thank Develop Africa for what they have been doing for this institution.  I want to let them know that the school material they've sent all these years has gone a long way in helping the school develop a library.

It is not the first time we have received school materials from them. I want to let them know that the school material they've sent all these years has gone a long way in helping the school develop a library.  And the library is helping students from universities and the community at large. Our students are making good use of it for research purposes.  I equally want to appreciate the fact that the school materials have gone a long way in helping students in the school such as books, pens, pencils, and backpacks.   Thank you very much!

I am Mr. Akuri Lucien Fobi, the Headteacher of Bitame Lucia International School. On behalf of the entire school, I want to appreciate Develop Africa for the gift they sent to us. Because it has gone a long way to help us to award prizes to our many children and that can help them to boost the morale of the school and help them continue their academic year smoothly. We pray that this cordial relationship between Bitame Lucia and Develop Africa should continue in the near future.  We pray that God gives them a long life and may continue to bless them so they can equally bless us in return. Thank you.

We want to thank Develop Africa for the school material they have sent to us.

Your support is making a difference for these deserving children in Cameroon at the Bitame Lucia International School.  We encourage you to consider 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.
