Summary

This project supports outstanding orphanages and spaces for children in conflict areas of South-West Cameroon. Since 2015, the project has helped houses to create bore holes, income-generating activities, schools, and provided basic support such as beds and mosquito nets. Currently 68 children aged 0 to 16 are part of our family, and donations are mostly used to pay teachers of their self-managed community schools.

Challenge

Since late 2017, there is an active conflict in Anglophone Cameroon that has killed at least 2,400 persons and displaced 670,000. Some children have been separated from their parents due to the on-going killing and confrontations. Since 2016, education has been suspended due to the political conflict. If a child was 7 in late 2016, just beginning to master reading and writing, by now he is 10 and has forgotten everything about it already. A child that is 7 today might have never been to school.

Solution

The three social centers (Mah Di's orphanage, Father's House Orphanage, and Hope Alive Foundation) provide a refugee for the horrors of war, they are spaces for creativity, peace, and psychosocial support. They are also accepted places for alternative education, where community schools take place. Children of the orphanages and from the community continue their education through contracted teachers. A percentage of emergency funds will be used for urgent needs such as food or hospital bills too.

Long-Term Impact

Children living with trauma will benefit specialized education and cover the knowledge gap they have with their age-mates. A child that is 17 in Anglophone Cameroon will still have to go through 4 more years of education before reaching University. This will not be the case for the 136 children that will manage to stay on track. They will gain skills and receive psychosocial support that will help them achieve self-independence and assist them to grow up and find their place in society.
