Many of you know that I was in Cameroon in August 2016 doing teacher training for the launch of a tutoring program for middle-school girls in in Bankondji, Cameroon. (The picture above is of the teachers, students, and me!) You can read about that experience by scrolling down to the end of this blog here–if you’re interested, it’s best to read the entries in reverse chronological order.)
The program was very successful in its first year. We are now in year 2, with the hope and expectation that the Aumazo high school (the true goal of the program) will be able to open its doors next August and welcome the tutoring program graduates and other high school girls from the area.
I will be donating to the AUMAZO, INC. matching campaign that starts tomorrow #GivingTuesday, November 28, 2017. I hope you will consider doing so too!
Here is more information:
GlobalGiving is rewarding all organizations and all donors all day.
There will be a $75,000 Incentive Fund where GlobalGiving is looking at how much Aumazo raises in comparison to the whole. The percentage of the total funds Aumazo raises on #GivingTuesday will be the percentage of the Incentive Fund Aumazo takes home. (So, if we are able to raise 7% of the total, we will get 7% of the $75,000 = $5,250; if we raise 10% of the total raised, we will get $7,500; etc.)
The #GivingTuesday Campaign starts at 00:00:01 EST and ends at 23:59:59 EST tomorrow, Tuesday, November 28th, 2017.
The matching campaign ends with the Year-End Campaign on December 31st.
Please consider joining me in donating here and helping this important organization reach the very reachable goal of $9,500. The money raised starting Nov. 28th through December 31st will provide crucial funds to the Tutoring Program “It Makes Good / Ça Fait Du Bien” that AUMAZO, INC launched last year.
Aumazo’s goal is to increase the 35% success rate that girls in the village achieved on the high school entrance exam this past academic year. The program had a positive impact on 34 girls enrolled in Bankondji Cameroon. Many of these girls attending this school year continue to pray and wish every day for better opportunity to go and stay in school. As a result of continued support from people like you, their educational worries are slowly becoming a thing of the past.
If you can’t give tomorrow, consider doing so before December 31, 2017. I’d really appreciate if you’d share the news of this special matching day with others. Please share the following link on your social network: http://goto.gg/17229.
Thank you and much love,
Does your life need a breath of fresh air? Come have fun and learn French at the same time!
The picture above was drawn in another of my adult classes — you can read the silly story we created together here about Fleur Francine, the very large bottle of ink who wants to be useful…. You’ll already be able to read stories like this by the end of the first six-week session!
