Dear Project Supporters,

The students at Bitame Lucia Nursery and Primary School (BLIS)  are enjoying their summer with summer sports and summer workshops.  One of the summer school workshops was on "My favorite Hero" and favorite Pet. The children had a great time participating.  There are also sports camps through the summer such as the CAPEC Community Sports Program, which works to improve lives through sports.  You can see more photos in the photo album

We appreciate your continued support for these children in Cameroon as they prepare to start a new school year in September.   These students need school supplies, uniforms, scholarships and some need help getting a nutritious meal each day.  

Your support is making a difference for these deserving children in Cameroon and helping us and the school achieve the mission of providing the children with an opportunity to receive their education.  We welcome your continued support to help us provide scholarships, school supplies and needed school improvements for BLIS and other schools in Cameroon.

 

With great appreciation,

The Develop Africa Team

Dear Project Supporters,

Thanks in part to your generous donations the students at Bitame Lucia Nursery and Primary School (BLIS) have had a very enjoyable second half of their school year.  Photos from the various sports activities and field trips can be seen below.  

On March 28, the secondary school students had their first ever social. There were lots of activities including sugar race, bag race, blind shooting, relay running, singing, dancing and ballet. The day ended with awards for the winners and light refreshments.

The International Day of Sports for Development and Peace celebrated on April 6th and was commemorated through an educational, awareness and sporting activity session. 

Class five pupils went on a field trip in April and visited Mvog-Betsi Zoo, where the students learned about wild animals. The Mvog-Betsi Zoo is situated in Yaoundé and hosts a wide range of species including reptiles, big cats, and birds of prey. 

World Malaria Day, April 25, was celebrated at school with a workshop.  The BLIS pupils and teachers are ready to beat Malaria!

Thank you so much for your on-going support that has made this school year so enjoyable for the students at BLIS.   We welcome your ongoing support for BLIS and other schools in Cameroon.

 

With great appreciation,

Dear Project Supporters, 

Your support has helped provide school supplies to the Bitame Lucia Nursery and Primary School (BLIS) as well as to other schools. Pencils and school supplies were distributed to the pupils of Nyabi Primary School. This school has 800 pupils, 400 which are refugees children from Central Africa and Nigeria. The families fled their homes due to violent conflicts in the Central African Republic (CAR) and increasing animosity between armed groups in northern Nigeria. 

The CAPEC Team also visited and donated some educational materials to Bape Mondial School. The school has 75 kids and functions out of a 3 hut with a roof made of palm leaves, no administrative block, no toilet, no running water and very few seats for the children - as seen in the included photos. When it’s raining season, these children cannot even go to school! 

In many of the rural schools in Cameroon, children are struggling to write without a pencil or pen. In one of the schools, 5 children shared a single pencil. The teacher explained the stress and unproductivity of waiting for a child to write notes, and then pass the pencil on to another child. Most of them lacked basic exercise books and basic school supplies. 

In response to the desperate needs, we will shortly be broadening the scope of this project to support additional schools and other areas of need. We want to ensure that many more children have their own pencils and the other basic school supplies.

The school in the following link badly needs a supporting structure and resources. The kids deserve so much more - and the opportunity of a decent education. Please join us in supporting the education of disadvantaged and displaced kids. Thank you so much for your on-going support!

With great appreciation,
The Develop Africa Team

You can see some of the photos in this report and more photos in the full album.

Thanks again for making a difference for these deserving children in Cameroon and helping us and the school achieve the mission of providing the children with an opportunity to receive their education.  Your continued support to help us provide scholarships, school supplies and needed school improvements is greatly appreciated.

Dear Project Supporters,

Thank you for your continued support to for the students in Cameroon.  Throughout the summer children attended the 4-week CAPEC (Cameroon Association for the Protection and Education of the Child) Music Summer Camp. It was a wonderful four weeks of summer camp.  

Each week the teachers did a live performance to enable students to witness what they had been taught in the class.  The students and teachers became more ambitious throughout the four weeks and the students are very satisfied with the knowledge they have acquired. It was a very enjoyable summer camp for all who participated.   As you can see in the photos below the children had a wonderful time.  You can see the full album here.

As the children start the new school year, they are doing so with new school supplies that they received thanks to your generous donations.  You can see some photos below.

The founder and Executive Director of CAPEC, Collette, interviewed with Conatus News and said "I started CAPEC in order to protect and educate underprivileged children living in various communities across Cameroon. According to CAPEC, education is not only the main solution to poverty but it also stands at the heart of sustainable human development. Currently, CAPEC has the following schools: Bitame Lucia Nursery and Primary School (BLIS) and Bitame Lucia Secondary School (BLIC)"    

Thanks again for making a difference for these deserving children in Cameroon and helping us and Collette achieve the mission of providing all children with an opportunity to receive their education.  Your continued support to help us provide scholarships, school supplies and needed school improvements is greatly appreciated.

 With great appreciation,
The Develop Africa Team
