Parents Clearing the field
Parents Clearing the field

When we ask what Superpower we need to maintain our momentum, it's because the answer is simple. You are Aumazo's Superpower. 

A few days ago, I talked to the field team in Cameroon, and the teachers were enthusiastic about the Sustainable & Profitable Livelihood Program (SPLP), our new agro-business program.They saw an opportunity to learn new skills that would benefit the students and themselves.

Immediately, I thought of you and wished you were there at this moment to listen and take in the joy I felt hearing them because that was not all.

The news of the new program spread like wildfire around the village, and the parents decided to join in and take advantage of it to learn new skills. The best thing is that they volunteered their labor to help clear the field that will serve as the training site for the students. 

We owe you profound gratitude for every step of progress and transformation happening at Aumazo. It is short of a miracle that everything good is happening at the organizational level.

Know that we breathe more quickly because of your support. Who else can we count on if not you, our Superpower who constantly addresses the most pressing needs at Aumazo? So, thanbk you.

 

Forever Grateful,

 Jacqueline Audige and the Board

This May 24, 2022, we celebrate the Aumazo 17th anniversary. Pretend our child has reached the end of the teenage years. We have done all we can to put the organization on the growth path. Thank you for your involvement and support.

Consider the following significant accomplishments in the last 17 years:

  1. We started constructing our flagship high school, completed the library, and opened the doors to our tutoring students.
  2. We upgraded the kilometer-long track from the village to the school to provide year-round access for students and trucks hauling building materials to the construction site.
  3. Cameroon Ministry of Education issued official permission to open and operate the school legally.
  4. We started the tutoring program to help middle school girls in rural communities pass the mandatory national exams required for entry into high school. So far, 58 girls have successfully passed the high school entrance exam. 
  5. We included the scholarship program for participants who passed the mandatory high school exams as a bridging measure. Thus far, seven girls in the program graduated with their high school diplomas.
  6. We established ZOMABuild, a construction business that will eventually support CoReTecK Kamarie operating costs.
  7. We completed the water tower and will soon have clean drinking water at the school site.

What comes to your mind when you take notice of all the achievements? EXCEPTIONAL!

We recognize the extraordinary support you provided us throughout the years. It gave us unique abilities to deliver greatness on shoestrings.

As positive as it is, this assessment still reminds us that we have a lot to do. A few days ago, we revisited the promise Aumazo made in 2005. We realized that we still had more work to do to match our commitment to the broader goals. 

You have been a pillar to Aumazo Village for 17 years without hesitation. We know you will be there to usher Aumazo to adulthood.

We are paving the way forward with you. We are grateful to you for your undeniable support and thank you for bringing the organization successfully this far.

 

Sincere Gratitude,

Jacqueline Audige and the Board

Girls at Tutoring  in Aumazo School Building
Girls at Tutoring in Aumazo School Building

Two months after the academic year 2021-2022, we took a giant step and moved the tutoring program into the Aumazo school building in Bankondji. 

It was risky, given all the challenges we still have to overcome to make the building fully functional. There is no light, and we depend on daylight to maximize classroom time.  

We know that by teaming up with you, we will overcome those hurdles again. We want to take advantage of theLittle by Little campaignthat lasts five days and starts onApril 4, 2022, at 00:00:00 EDT, toApril 8, 2022, at 23:59:59 EDT.

Our goal is to raise $2,000 or more during this campaign. GlobalGiving will match 50 percent of all eligible donations up to $50 for the campaign's duration during theLittle by Little drive.   

We took a risk. It turned out very well, more than expected under the best of circumstances. We were able to usher into service the tablet armchairs that the University of Maryland donated to Aumazo in 2012. 

We count on your continued support to raise the needed funds to cover the electric lighting and wiring costs.

Things are looking up because of your involvement and support. We invite you to mark your calendar today so that you don't forget to donate $50 or moreand help us extend the learning opportunity for girls in the new building. 

Thank you for your undeniable support. We appreciate your partnership.

 

 Sincere gratitude,

Last November 2021, I received an email from Dani, the Senior Digital Marketing Manager at GlobalGiving. She shared the opportunity that the organization was presenting to us. GlobalGiving offered us an occasion to "be part of their 2021 annual report."

GlobalGiving publishes a high-level report detailing its partners and what GlobalGiving has collectively accomplished each year. In 2021, its staff wanted to feature me and the work of Aumazo Inc in the report. 

I jumped for joy when I learned the news. I was happy that someone else noticed our work and wanted to tell Aumazo's story and raise awareness of its impact. We share the joy and celebrate the moment on behalf of our supporters.

Have you met me? I asked because I have been part of the team at Aumazo for 17 years. I know that my position as the founder binds me to the organization. However, we attribute the success to your relentless engagement in the Aumazo mission. I hope you proudly click reading the piece here

We have taken a giant step and moved the needles. We have accomplished the unthinkable over the past 17 years. We peaked last year when we had a 100% success rate for girls in the high school entrance exam. We also opened the Aumazo school classroom doors to the girls in the tutoring program last January 2022. We are fully aware that there is still a lot to do. We trust that we will continue to achieve greatness with your ongoing support.

Thank you for your undeniable support. We appreciate your partnership.

We want you to know this holiday season that we appreciate you very much. We couldn’t think of our favorite time and forget to share the joy of the year with you.

You made this year even more beautiful with your support and gifts that transcend any physical space there is between us.

Kindness Is a Virtue

I am saying this because, on Thursday, December 16th, girls in the tutoring program in Bankondji made a wonderful gesture that warmed our hearts. They treated their tutors to a surprise dinner.

According to Aumazo’s Deputy Director Raïssa, “the teachers went to Bankondji {the tutoring program flagship center} to play soccer with the girls. They discovered that the girls had prepared a meal for their educators. It was a terrific and joyous day. They did not consult with their tutors before taking action. The gesture demonstrates their maturity and validates the work we are doing.”

The girls’ gesture reflects their sense of humanity for others. No one pressured them or suggested to them to take the initiative. They could have played the soccer game and left with a simple goodbye. They did not. They understood that being kind is a virtue that makes people extraordinary.

Kindnee Is Humanity

They remind us also that humanity is well and alive. It is something that you showed us day in day out throughout the year. We appreciate you so much for being so consistent with your act of kindness toward Aumazo. 

With your action you bore testimony to our character and confirm that we are on this journey together. We urge you to continue sharing the same spirit and spread the word around you. 

Life is beautiful when we share our grace with others. Encourage your friends and family to consider joining our movement of kindness. Let’s grow our community of kindness-sharers together.

We are very grateful to you. Your action always matters.

 

Happy New Year 2022!
