Hello Supporters and Friends !!

We are glad to report to you that 2012 ended with an advocacy and personal development workshop for 15 teenage mothers in Bonduma village.

In October , We got the Tole teenage mothers shop a spacious environment and shop functioning. Though we were not able to meet our target in 2012.

In 2013 we are targeting 100 teenage mothers in 5 localities within Fako division, Soutt West Region for capacity building, Revolving Micro Credit, Health Care coverage.

Yeah!!!    We are grateful  for all your support throughout 2012. We could not have achieved what we have done so far without  your generous donations. We are grateful for your support.

We look forward to 2013..

Merry X-Mass and A Prosperous 2013 !!!

Donors and supporters,

It is a wonderful pleasure working with you all these years. Your hard earned cash puts our strategic intentions into reality.

We are pleased to inform you that two teen mothers have received microcredit loan of US$100 each.

The Tole teen mothers shop is picking up; in the next four months we will include a call shop section in a bid to make the shop auto-financing and increase the opportunities of teen mothers to handle more functions in the shop.

Shallot (picture attached ) has taken the task of looking for a more spacious accommodtion to host more activities.

We look forward to your continued support in salvaging the vulnerability of our future mothers/care-givers and leaders in our communities

Donors and Supporters,

We would like to express our heartfelt thanks from all of us at Social Development International and our beneficiaries. It has been your generous support, commitment and passion to help teenage mothers  and family through education, training and production to develop themselves and care for their children.

In June 13, 2012, we were able to get our Tole Teenage Mothers Community Shop go functional with Art and Craft beauty products, designed and produced by teenage mothers themselves. Today they are proud young mothers able to showcase in their community what they are capable of doing, both as individuals and as a group- Proud and hardworking young mothers.

All these we could not achieve without your generous support. More grace to your elbow.


Dear Friends and Supporters, From February 17, 2012 our teenage mothers in Tole, Buea are proud owners of a community shop. The shop was rented to accommodate the products from art education activity initiated by Lucy a volunteer from Australia. Seventeen chairs, two tables,art education materials to produce earnings, necklace, hand bangles have been bought. The shop will also host a village call shop along side the creative art products from corn, coconut shells. Setting up of the shop is right on course to start business on or before 01 May 2012. Two Volunteers are on way to boast up the project activities on from the USA on Teen Mothers health and other on capacity Building. Our community education campaign is gradually gaining grounds; three teen Tole mothers have been sent back to school by the parents and four picked up apprentice jobs on Hair dressing, Embroidering, village call shop. Our revolving micro credit is right on course with 85% recovery; with two mothers benefiting last month - February. We look forward to your continued support

Dear Donors, Friends  and Supporters,

On Friday 9, December 2011 we were in Tole again with Lucy a volunteer from Australlia with our Teenage mothers. This time, it is a training session on ART AND CRAFT  using coconut shell and corn stalk to produce flowers, earings, neck lace, hand bangles, and flower pots,.. etc .

At the end of the day , we were able to train 10 teen mothers  as Training of Tainers (TOT) and also put plans in place to open a Community ART and CRAFT  Shop in Tole for the display and marketing of the products.  So that the Tole community and friends, partner visitors will be able to patronize our work,  sustain talent development,  give hope and livelihood to teenage mothers and their children.

Thanks to your donations.

With gratitude,
