I would like to commend Jacqueline Audige, CEO and Founder of Aumazo Inc/ZOMA B/C for extraordinary leadership and resourcefulness in establishing a girls' secondary boarding school in rural Cameroon, where only 17 percent of high school age girls are able to obtain education. The school will not only providea academic training using the national bilingual curriculum, but will also include training in microenteprise development and management, information technology, agricultural production and food processing.

She had devoted herself tirelessly to the pilot school, which nearly a decade ago was only a dream and a farm field in Western Cameroon. The school buildings should be completed and the first students start attending class in the near future.

Two things stand out about her work. First of all, her creativity. Perhaps her greatest innovation has been to use the machine that makes quality interlocking blocks out of local materials for the school construction. This machine then became the cornerstone of ZOMA B/C, a small construction materials and services business for homes and buildings. ZOMA's profits all go to support the operating expenses for the school.

Secondly, Jacqueline has build a remarkable coalition of individuals and organizations to help the school become a reality and contribute to the education of girls, a critical element in economic and social development.

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.

Aumazo has made great progress toward its goal in the last couple of years. As important, it has matured enough to broaden its scope to deal with the broader issues in the village of Bankondji, such as running water. Aumazo's goals are attainable yet the weakened economy has made fundraising for the school a challenge. There is no doubt that the school will open in the near future, a matter of months at most. The founder's vision of educating young Cameroonian women as drivers of the local economy will prove to be a winning vision for Bankondji and for the rest of the country.
