Dear Supporters/Partners / Friends of CAPEC,

Seasonal greetings from Cameroon!!!

During the last three months, thanks to your support, we had our end-of-school year celebrations and summer program.  Graduation Day, which marked the end of year for CAPEC pupils was held in June.  Activities associated with it involved performances by the kids including drama, dance, music, rhymes and debate. 

All five-year-old nursery 2 pupils received certificates as they graduated into primary class 1. The administration awarded prizes to the best three ranking pupils in each class. Prizes were also awarded to pupils who had the best improved results and the most punctual pupil in each class.

Your support also helped make possible our Hello Kids program.  This program included socio-cultural activities such as Arts & Crafts, Games and Drama, Computer training, Sewing, Cookery, Sports activities and Excursion trips.  The program provided training and exposure activities for deprived and disadvantaged children such as orphans and handicapped children.  The children learned new skills and improved on already existing ones.  They had the opportunity to meet and interact with friends.  They were able to learn new skills such as photography and crafts - which are normally not taught in schools.  Thanks to your support, this program helped create magical moments and extraordinary days for abused, abandoned, neglected, disadvantaged and underprivileged children.

We are so grateful for your on-going support that made this possible.  

Take your impact to the next level: A generous anonymous donor has agreed to match 100% of new monthly donations from now through August 30, 2013. If you make a monthly recurring donation to this project, your donation will be matched! For example, if you set up a new $25 monthly recurring donation, GlobalGiving will donate an additional $25 to this project.

Want to help us do even more? you can now easily create a fundraiser here on GlobalGiving and help us raise funds for more training.  This is a fantastic way to invite your friends and family to join you in making a difference. You can start your fundraiser here - today!  Let us know if you have any questions or need our help setting this up.  

Thanks so much for all you do!

Just having fun...
