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

Your support is making a difference for students in Cameroon; 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.

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. 

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

Dear Project Supporters,

Because of your continued support students in six schools in the Garoua 1 District of Garoua, Cameroon recently received school supplies. The students at each school were delighted to receive the school supplies.

The supplies were recently distributed in partnership with the US Army in Cameroon and Spirit of America. Your donations helped cover some of the administrative and logistics costs.

One of the US Army soldiers that participated in the distribution explained that: 

After only three schools, I can genuinely say this is one of the most fulfilling projects of my Army career so far. Each school welcomed us with a school-wide ceremony, including speeches, dances, skits, and songs. The School Inspector said that most students are well aware that American entities periodically provide donations throughout Garoua and it is a big motivator for them to perform better in the classroom. In one of the exciting side effects of this project, these events also open the door for us to possibly work even more with each school on larger scale projects like better facilities or water points. This goes a long way for maintaining strong relationships between our team and the local education system.


In the linked video, you can see one of the songs that the children performed for the US Army.  

 

Your support is making a difference for these deserving children in Cameroon.  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.

Nebimi working at a garage

Dear Project Supporters,

The students at Bitame Lucia Nursery and Primary School (BLIS)  are back in school and thanks to generous donors like you several students have received tuition support and school supplies.  One of the students that started school this year is Nebimi.  Ajomuzu Collette Bekaku – Founder and Executive Director of CAPEC, tells the story below about Nebimi who went from working at a car garage at the age of 11 to going to school this year.

On the way to my office, I saw a child working in a garage. I was shocked and decided to have a conversation with him. I asked him “how old are you and why are you not in school?”. He answered, “I am 11 years old”. At this point, a young man approached us and interrupted our conversation. He introduced himself to me as the owner of the garage. So, I asked him “why has he employed a child to work in his garage?”, and he said ... “the father of this boy is a refugee from the Central African Republic, and since he hasn’t any money to sponsor the boy in school, he gave him to me so that he can be trained and be able to take care of himself in the future.” I was emotionally broke and asked the garage owner if I could speak with the boy’s parents. To cut a long story short, before leaving the garage for my office, I asked the little boy what his ambition is and if he is happy receiving the training at the garage? He smiled and said “without education, I will have to forgo my ambition of becoming an influential somebody in society. All I dream of is going back to school”. With the sole support of CAPEC’s scholarship programme, Nebimi is now in school

However, CAPEC later found out that Nebimi has 3 siblings who are not attending school because their parents don’t have the means.

There are many such cases were children, from poor homes, are left on their own and found working in hazardous conditions in different communities. Formal education is the only thing these children are expecting from us. We are deeply convinced that your support can get back these children to school, enabling them to fulfill their full potential.

 

Donations from generous donors like you will help more children like Nebimi have the opportunity to go to school. Your ongoing support is greatly appreciated.  We encourage you to start 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.   

 

Warmest Regards,  

Amy & the Develop Africa Team
