Warm greetings.

We are excited to report that the past 6 - 7 months have been a time of tremendous growth and progress. We are so grateful for this opportunity to invest into the lives of these children, the future leaders of Cameroon, Africa and potentially the world.

Thanks to your support through GlobalGiving and the support of other organizations:

1. We have been able to support more children and increase enrollment from 50 to 100 (a 100% increase).

2. The school children all now have beautiful and colorful uniforms. (see photos)

3. We also have one additional desk for 2 orphan children (who previously we had to send home as we could not accommodate them).

4. The school and children have received teaching and school supplies, clothes and shoes.

5. The school took part in all the activities organized by local education authorities and major ones organized by other International institutions.

We sincerely and gratefully thank you for your donations and on-going support. Thanks for joining us in changing the lives of children in Cameroon. We appreciate you so much.

With your continued support, we will achieve our goal of moving into a permanent structure. This permanent building will provide a safe and conducive learning environment.

We welcome your feedback, school supplies donations (through Develop Africa) and suggestions on how we can attract more support.

cordially and best wishes
