School is starting!

Education in Cameroon is not for everyone... it is expensive to send a child to school. People have to pay school fees, buy uniforms, books, school shoes, badges, school bags, exams fees... and not to talk about taking care of the health of children. RUDEC came up to seek ways to support these children.

This Monday, School has started and therefore bags and textbooks have been delivered to our orphans on Friday. In these days we were busy paying their school fees, packing the bags, and accompanying children to school.

Meanwhile the school preparations were running we had visitors from the U.S. They have continously sponsored 10 children at RUDEC. 
Todd and Shaun from „Cameroon One“ have been visiting Bamenda and Belo to see how everything is going and get to know better RUDEC and it’s work. Their plans in Cameroon were to create a network with another project in Bamenda that is called "Mankon children’s home". 
They have furthermore promised to see what they could do to sponsor more children at RUDEC. We are very happy about this news as we are always looking for new sponsors! Thank you!
RUDEC has not relent its efforts to reach out to children that they sponsored in the remote villages around Boyo division. Joshua visited Makwa Anabel who was discovered by a pastor about her drop from school because she got no person to pay her fees because the mother is widow twice,being a small farmer in a remote village of Bolem, filled with frustration, she was looking at where to have support to give hope to Anabel. RUDEC's focus on educating a child caught up with her and visited them with one of its volunteer Kelly, she decided to sponsor Anabel. Our visit this time was to see how she is doing and progress in school. She came 2nd position in a class of 56. We gave her school bag, books, paid her fees and a toothbrush
