Issues: Education

Location: PO Box 9404 Silver Spring MD 20916 USA

Mission: Our organization’s mission is to empower girls through education and ensure that they are given the opportunities to succeed in life by the time they leave 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 and currently 40% of the school’s physical infrastructure is under construction. The entire foundation and 25% of all the bricks have been laid. Native workers and local materials have been utilized as much as possible to minimize costs and to involve the participation of the community.
Target demographics: Disadvantaged Rural Girls in Cameroon/Africa
Direct beneficiaries per year: Prospects of better future to the girls and their families.
Geographic areas served: International
Programs: We recognize that, if given the opportunity, it is often women and girls who are the engines of transformational economies in the developing world. Hence, Project Aumazo promises to be a lifetime opportunity for rural girls to emancipate from neglect, isolation and marginalization. Our primary goal is to place high school education and vocational training for girls on the map of this rural Cameroonian village, where it is still uncommon for females to be educated and trained beyond middle school. Our secondary, and related goal, is to assist female students to secure gainful employment upon graduation if they are unable to pursue a higher education degree. Our third goal is to address the water and sanitation issues for our students and their communities.
