Issues: Education

Location: 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.
