Address:

PO Box 9404 Silver Spring MD 20916 USA

Mission:

Our organization’s mission is to empower girls with high school education by building better school infrastructure and ensure that they are given the opportunities to succeed in life by the time they leave our school. Many rural girls have no access to high school education in Cameroon for a lack of appropriate infrastructure. By building its own school, Aumazo, Inc. will help girls stay in school by providing them with an environment conducive to learning, an environment that nurtures their capacities to make a difference in their lives and in their communities.

Results:

Our first school is under construction in the rural village of Bankondji in Cameroon. To date, much progress has been made in promoting the school to the regional community. In 2012, after establishing the ZOMA the construction company which revenue will sustain the operating costs of the school, we completed the library/study building and built concrete slab floors for the entire school building. In 2013, we also benefited from a continued Pro Bono Consulting Service at George Washington University. In 2014 and in collaboration with the RM Sovich Architecture firm based in Baltimore, Maryland, we worked on the new school design that is relevant to the rural environment. The same year, we established an ongoing working partnership with the Barrie School in Silver Spring.

Target demographics:

Disadvantaged Rural Girls in Cameroon/Africa

Direct beneficiaries per year:

8 families regain their financial freedom by providing job at our construction site

Geographic areas served:

International

Programs:

Aumazo is building safe and welcoming boarding schools for girls, with well-equipped classrooms, adequate sanitation facilities, a gymnasium, a library/study and computer room. Access to a better infrastructure and an improved school environment for young women means: increased safety, a reduction in dropouts, improved learning, higher self-esteem, more self-worth, and the development of our future leaders.

Reviews for Aumazo, Inc.

Rating: 5 stars  

The progress of this non profit foundation has been exceptional. The founder Jacqueline Audige works tirelessly to bring development and progress to Cameroon and Bakondji. She has a team on the ground constantly coordinating with her efforts. The girls to whom she is building schools are lucky to have her as an example. If you are looking to help and donate then you can not go wrong with Aumazo, Inc.

Aumazo is the real deal. This organization really does help young girls in Cameroon by building schools one brick at a time. Education is the key to a better life and I approve of this message.

Watch the videos on www.aumazo.org if you don't believe me. ;)

Aumazo has been keeping its audience informed, in the loop. There have been multiple fundraising efforts in the form of events and sponsor vettings all year long. The team's diligence and efforts reflect the heart that beats and lives inside of Aumazo, Inc. Every day they get one step closer to launching the first boarding school and so many people are invested and counting on it! Go Aumazo!

This organization is ran by a determined CEO with a very aspiring goal to grant education to those who cannot afford it. I worked with the organization more than several times, and I got very invested in helping out and seeing success for everyone out there in the struggling rural areas. Everyone deserves an education, and everyone should come out and support great causes such as this! No passionate voice deserves to be ignored, and this organization is certainly no exception.

AUMAZO est un très bon projet. Les jeunes filles camerounaises qui vont en bénéficier pourront accroître leurs connaissances et étudier dans de très bonnes conditions afin de trouver plus tard un bon emploi qui leur correspond. Ce qui profitera non seulement aux filles du Cameroun mais aussi à toutes les jeunes filles des pays limitrophes.

This is a very great project that will enable young girls to learn, to develop and reinforce their skills and their knowledge; all this, in the best possible conditions.

AUMAZO, cet organisme dont l'enjeu social des ambitions n'est plus à démontrer, reste l'espoir d'une communauté qui entend faire sa mue complète avec la ferme optique d'être un maillon à l'émergence qu'aspire le pays.
Forte de ses ambitions, AUMAZO participe à l'évolution des habitudes de la population, qui a soif de ce nouveau monde avec ses nouvelles façons.
l'envergure des évènements nous commande de penser que au delà du savoir faire ,nous avons ici tout un système d'instruction qui va ressusciter des vies entières.
Va de l'avant AUMAZO!!!

Jacqueline Audige, the founder of Aumazo has been working relentlessly for the past 7-8 years to fund and build schools for girls in her native Cameroon. Great cause, fantastic work and inspiring example.

Aumazo has done a great job generating multiple streams of financial resources for the project. By following a strong and efficient business model, the organization is also ensuring its long-term sustainability. This aspect differentiates Aumazo from many projects in which the initial investment is rarely followed by a sustainable plan for the growth of the organization. Once built, the school will be able to genrateits own income by developing economically feasible business ventures. These will provide hands-on practical opportunities for the students.

Aumazo is a stellar organization with a most worthy goal. It is important to note that Aumazo is dealing quite effectively with the perennial issue of operational funding by creating a for-profit business that will fund the school on a very long-term basis. This smart solution to a common funding issue is what separates Aumazo from most other projects!

Aumazo is taking some important steps to make the school a reality and to provide long-term financial support for the project in Cameroon. Indeed, the school is being built brick by brick and although the process has been slow and frustrating at times, there is no doubt that the finished product will be for itself and be a critical player in the local landscape for generations to come.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

While in Cameroon I have seen the positive impact the project has on the community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would have a magic wand to make fundraising easier
