"It takes a village to raise a child, it takes a world to raise a village." -Kerry Breuer


I'm traveling with a small delegation to help the Bafou village school & clinic in Cameroon, West Africa for 2.5 weeks this August.  Google Map of Bafou, Cameroon, West Africa

Since 2008, the state hasn't taken care of the Bafou elementary school.  Bafou village native who attended this school, international martial arts expert, the African Bruce Lee, my friend, Master Dominique Saatenang, has been trying to pay the salaries of the Bafou village schoolteachers, but your help is still needed.

"We become what we think, We reap what we sow" -Master Dominique Saatenang

Working hand-in-hand with his non-profit *French Africa Wushu Association (AFA WUSHU), we'll be traveling with Mr. Saatenang to Bafou village to utilize your donation to purchase much-needed supplies for the school:  books, notebooks, pens, backpacks, desks, and benches.

"Save your pennies for a rainy day. August is rainy season in Bafou, Cameroon. You can make it rain hope in this village." -Kerry Breuer

Bafou village had a clinic under construction, but due to a lack of funds, it remains abandoned. Your significant donation will help restart construction of the clinic to make healthcare a reality for this remote village.

(There is a naming opportunity for the clinic for a very Generous gift!)
=D

Bafou village has no roads or
vehicles, so getting to the nearest hospital 33.5 miles away is a matter of life and death!

 

Donate your 4x4 / SUV and we can ship it to Cameroon where it will make a huge difference for a whole village! =D


How your donation will be used:
70% Bafou village
20% to help with airfare, trip costs
10% Fundraising costs

Every bit helps and we THANK YOU for every penny! =D MERCI! =D
