The indigenous children we work with have only one dream, to go to school and become responsible and active community members.
Since 2013, these children have proven that with hard work and a little bit assistance, they can move forward to improve their situations.
This year again, they want to go back to school to continue this further reach their dream, but they need a hand from us.
We are therefore reaching out to you to sponsor them for US $ 25.
The sponsorship include will be able to buy them the following items:
– A school kit (notebooks, a slate, pens, ruler, eraser, pencils, a pack of white chalk)
– Participation fees for the payment of volunteer teachers and contribution to the running of the school.
– Insurance costs
Thank you for your contributions, we appreciate all your support
Last year , we enrolled 26 indigenous students including 12 girls and 14 boys at Liélé Nkama Primary School in Bambama.
Based on this year’s results, we are pleased to report we reach our strategic goal of zero dropout
For the school year, 2019. All of the 26 students stayed enrolled in school and there was no one dropout at all. Moreover, 15 out of the 26 Students moved up to a higher grade.
Girls’ success rates have been decreasing this year due to illnesses, and students participation in agricultural labor. Unfortunately, lack of funds did not allow us to keep up with our incentive program that so well helped us keep students at school in previous. To remedy this situation, we are preparing to launch a sponsorship program to send these indigenous students back to school in October.Thanks to everyone who sponsored the children this year, giving an opportunity to attend school and increase their chances for a better life.
Our thanks go specifically to:
