The project objective is to rebuild an existing public and unique school for the Baka communities in the neighbouring village in the boucle of the Dja Faunal Reserve called Schwam, in southeastern Cameroon.
The current Baka school has only one mud classroom with a tin roof for all students. It is used for all classes with other children from surrounding villages such as Ekom, Kagnol, Kolekul, Maleuleu, Malen V et Nken.
The Baka people also known as Pygmies are indigenous communities living in several reserves in central Africa. They are among the poorest, vulnerable and fragile communities in the world.
The nearest school is in Somalomo, about 12-15 km away. The main difficulty is the Dja river crossing as there is no bridge and the current ferry is not working. The Dja river is encircling the reserve (except to the south-west) with rapids and waterfalls. People including youth attending the school in Samalomo are crossing the Dja River using indigenous and local narrow wood boats. Even the Baka chief in the village of Schuam who first reach out for the proposed school to the Foundation through our contact at the Congo Basin Institute (CBI) in Somalomo died tragically with his wife few weeks ago in the Dja River. The couple when for fishing using their small wood boat and lost their lives.
Building the proposed school will improve the Baka Communities livelihoods and human rights. It will also contribute to the protection of the wildlife and environment.
We appreciate your generous contribution to this project and for the Baka children and communities.

Being a disabled person is a harsh reality to experience. Unfortunately, they are millions of people in developing countries that have never experienced freedom of mobility in their entire life.
In 2016–2017, we have received a 500 wheelchairs donation to help those living with disabilities and we sent two containers with 250 wheelchairs each to Cameroon, Africa. Our goal in 2019/2020 is to send 250 wheelchairs to disabled people in Cameroon. We are currently looking for wheelchairs and/or money donation to help those in need.
So we are asking for your help. Please join us in order to help make a difference on people’s lives. We are so grateful and thank you so much everyone!

We are looking to establish multiple and free CCF Community Learning Centers across Cameroon.
Through our centers, we will provide free seminars and mentoring, computer tutoring and training programs, and access to a new library with educational books. Our goal is to help local communities, empower women and men, and to prepare the next generation of youth to fully participate in educational and socio-economic life.
- We are looking for new and used laptops, tablets, smart boards, free education books, flat screen televisions. ..etc.
- Our goal is to also raise $20,000 to support our various learning and training programs.
Please donate to help establish the proposed learning center.
