Making This World a Better Place, Together

The year has sped by so quickly and its already almost November.  Its Harvest time / Fall Season for many areas around the world and a time of thankfulness.  We are especially grateful to you - our faithful friends, donor and supporters.  Thanks to you, the tailoring trainees below show their handiwork, youths full of potential have received forward-thinking leadership training and children in Cameroon are learning about manufacturing etc. 

Our little drops of water are helping to make the world a better place, one life at a time.  The video by the tailoring trainees confirms that we are uplifting lives and making a positive change. Thanks for reaching out, touching someone's hand with us and joining us in making the world a better place.

We excitedly look forward to doing so much more.  Thanks for walking this road with us...

Project Update - CAPEC School Cameroon - Kids Performed Well Academically
It has been a very successful and fantastic year of good health at Bitame Lucia School given that none of the children registered any major illness and am so excited that they all got to perform well in their academic work. Apart from the academic achievements, the kids took part in excursion and other recreational activities. During the trimester, the children visited a brewery company to see how soft drinks are made.  They also took part in the 20th May Celebration, which is the reunification day in Cameroon.
