 20 children in Kribi can go to school only with the help of donations.
Orphans and children with sick or non-available parents have great difficulties. They help around the house, but their own future often does not receive enough attention.
Our partner organisation in Kribi, Echo-Belzig-Kribi, has identified 20 children who have been sent to school and who are now being accompanied throughout their education.
Every year, we receive a report about the past school year and we ask for donations for the coming school year. In August, Echo-Belzig-Kribi organises a ceremony to which the families are invited and where the children receive their new material. The school year in Cameroon always starts in the beginning of September.
As a rule, each child needs 250€ for one school year. This pays:
- Birth certificate (if not existant)
- Enrollment fees
- School material (notebooks, books, pencils, etc.)
- School uniform, gym shoes, rubber boots and rain jacket for rainy days
- School bag
