Dear Project Supporters,

Thank you for your continued support to help optimize educational opportunities in Cameroon for the students at the Bitame Lucia Nursery and Primary School in Nkolfoulou, Cameroon (BLIS).  Your donations have helped purchase school supplies, provide scholarships and cover expenses at the BLIS School.  

The students at the BLIS recently celebrated National Day. Photos included in this report show their parade in honor of National Day.

The Cameroon students are also working hard to finish classes before the end of the school year. They have enjoyed the school year, playing with their friends, learning new things and now they are looking forward to summer break.  Photos also show the BLIS students playing with their friends on the playground. Because of YOUR support, the students are able to learn and play in a stable environment. 

Thanks again for making a difference for these deserving children in Cameroon. Your continued support to help us provide scholarships, school supplies and needed school improvements is greatly appreciated. 

With great appreciation,
The Develop Africa Team

Dear Project Supporters,

Thank you for your continued support to help optimize educational opportunities in Cameroon.  The students at the Bitame Lucia Nursery and Primary School in Nkolfoulou, Cameroon (BLIS) have had a busy and rewarding year so far. 

In December, BLIS held end of year celebrations where the students performed dances, skits and speeches for their families and friends. There was also national letter reading day where the children received letters from their partner school in the USA.  The most recent activity was the Youth Day Celebration which involves all the youths nationwide.

Take a minute to go through the photo album and enjoy the photos of the different activities that have been going on this year at BLIS.

Thanks again for making a difference for these deserving children in Cameroon.

With great appreciation,

The Develop Africa Team

Dear Project Supporters,

Thank you for your support in providing the tools and opportunity for students in Cameroon to get an education.  

"Education is a powerful driver of development and one of the strongest instruments for reducing poverty, raising incomes, promoting economic growth and shared prosperity, and for improving health, gender equality, peace, and stability." (World Bank).

We were delighted to team up with US military personnel from Civil Affairs Team 8242 who delivered 16 barrels full of school supplies thanks to your generous donations to schools in Garoua. The donations effect children where the attendance rates of each school reach up to 2000 students and provide a better education opportunity for the students most vulnerable to recruitment by Boko Haram.

"It is essential that we understand local needs and adequately respond to them in a targeted manner", said Sylvester Renner, the President of Develop Africa. "This is why Develop Africa has been providing books, school supplies, scholarships and training for 10 years now", Renner said.  Read the full press release.

You helped bring necessary supplies to these children and made an impact on their future. Develop Africa welcomes additional school supply donations and donations of funds towards logistics on an on-going basis and around the year.

Thank you for making a difference!

With great appreciation,
The Develop Africa Team

Dear Project Supporters,

Classes have just resumed at the Bitame Lucia Nursery and Primary School in Nkolfoulou, Cameroon.  Thanks to you,  Marveline and her sister have received all their books for their new classes. They both passed their end of year examinations; Marveline came out with the 2nd best marks in her class and her little sister came out the best in her own class.  They started Class 5 and Class 3 this week.  

With hearts full of gratitude and faces filled with gleeful smiles, Marveline and her sister say a big "thank you" to YOU for your support. We would not have been able to help these deserving children without your support.  We are thrilled to know that they are in excellent form to do well this academic year.
 
Thank you so much for making the school year start out on a positive note for Marveline and her sister.

With great appreciation,
The Develop Africa Team

Dear project partners

The last quarter of the academic year was very busy for the pupils in and out of the school.The month of May is usually a very busy period for the pupils and students all over the nation.

Thanks in part to your generous donations they were able to go on field trips. They visited the museum and the multipurpose sports complex of the nation’s capital.  They also joined the other students of other schools for the national day celebration.

During the end of year ceremony tokens of encouragement and appreciation were given to parents who took good care of their children. Drama sketches were prepared and presented to the happy parents by the pupils. Teachers also received gifts of encouragement and appreciation for being the best during the academic year.

Thank you again for making this school year a success through your generosity!

Warmest Regards,

Develop Africa Team
