The Girl Effect Fund Activities in Cameroon

Dear Donors, Supporters and Friends,

We would like to sincerely thank you for all the painstaking efforts in making our project fruitful with your hard earned cash and technical support.

THE GIRL EFFECT FUND has made it possible, first in the history of our teenage mothers' project, to start envisaging achieving our yearly target of reaching out to 100 teenage mothers' direct beneficiaries.

So far we have received 45% funding of our yearly budget from THE GIRL EFFECT FUND just in the first quarter of 2013. this is promising. Bravo!!! The GIRL EFFECT FUND.

With THE GIRL EFFECT FUND we are sure to start our Teenage Mothers Institute come September, 2013. Our most cherished goal to be achieved in Cameroon.  

Antonia Morzenti , a volunteer from Wisconsin, USA with grant support from OMPRAKASH will handle the capacity building of teenage mothers in the next 6 months. She will arrive in Cameroon, Buea 10 March, 2013. OMPRAKASH we are grateful!!!

January 2013, we evaluated the Tole village project.

February 2013 we started with Mamul Village, sensitization and identification with 20 teenage mothers to receive complete capacity building training over a period of four months, 40 Mutual health coverage for a year (Mother and child), and school sponsorship for 3 to continue their education and, the rest entrepreneurs in the making.

March 2013, we began with Lower Muea and upper Muea villages, we held fruitful discussions with the two chiefs; sensitization and identification of teenage mothers in their communities has begun. By March 15, 2013 we will be through with the two Muea villages sensitization, and identification process.

The last two weeks of March, 2013 we will focus our attention to cover Bolifamba and Dibanda villages. This gives us 5 villages targeted yearly with 100 teenage mothers' direct beneficiaries.

THE GIRL EFFECT FUND know that we are in this together; our achievement is your achievement, we could not have envisage achieving so much this year without your support Cameroon Teenage Mothers hold you in high Esteem.

We look forward to your continued support and; please join us in modeling our future mothers and leaders.
