Funraising Campaign for Summer Project | Thanks for Donate

Summer Projects are provided to empower residents in rural areas on the topics of Health, Information Technology, Entrepreneurship and Social Responsibility. We provide programs in the villages of Bangoua and Babouantou. The trainings, sensitizations and workshops introduce them to help understand the socio-economical problems effecting them and promotes finding sustainable solutions. We provided trainings to more than 150 people (males and females) from 4 to 40 years old each summer.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Located in the province of West Cameroon, Bangoua and Babouantou suffer from underdevelopment with a lack of resources and infrastructure.

How will this project solve this problem?

Our projects will provide education and resources to enable the local population, adults and children, to identify opportunities in their environment that would help promote economic activity and alleviate poverty. The training, along with tools such as computers, technology and health information, aims to show national organizations that investment into the rural population is an important development opportunity for the success of all Cameroon.

Potential Long Term Impact

Our aim is to provide year round centers where former and potential students can utilize technology and information to help improve their lives. Continued use of these resources will potentially increase the need for general infrastructure such as roads, internet, water as a result from increased economic activity in these regions from new business activity.

Project Message

I believe everyone should be afforded the opportunity to improve their life. By providing knowledge, technology and inspiration we can allow the full potential of rural Cameroon to be realized.
