Bringing books to all the children
One of our objectives is to ensure that the most vulnerable children of poor family groups in the Center region where our structure is located have access to books and educational activities. We also aim to expand our network to other regions of Cameroon and to rural areas.
Encourage the personal development of each child.
We collect all used or new books and materials to supply our local library in which other activities take place such as: activities for babies and toddlers, reading workshops and activities for children, foreign language courses for adolescents, training session on specific cultural subjects and many other projects.
