I just returned from visiting the work of Aumazo and of its tireless and dedicated founder, Jacqueline Tchouassi Audige, in Bankondji, Cameroon. There, Aumazo, Inc. is building a secondary school for girls. I was deeply touched by the energy of hope stirred among the people of Bankondji by the work of Aumazo. From village leaders to the smallest child, all villagers of Bankondji are invested in the completion of Aumazo's school project. It was clear to me that the school is necessary and wanted by its people. $200,000.00 have yet to be raised to complete the construction as well as furnish the school. I have returned more than ever committed to support the efforts of Aumazo in Bankondji, Cameroon. Efforts that are relevant to the people of Bankondji, that are grounded in the needs and desires of the people of Bankondji. The founder, Jacqueline Tchouassi Audige, receives no pay for her tireless work. All moneys received by Aumazo are directly invested in the building of the school. This is a truly honorable organization--an honest organization led by a woman of great integrity, a native Cameroonian herself.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
As faculty in the field of education, I have been personally transformed by my visit to Bankondji where I witnessed first hand the building site of the secondary school for girls and the hope in the hearts of the people that Aumazo'a project stirs.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Perhaps a more active and engaged board would help the organization locate the necessary funds for its project(s).
Volunteer & I came to establish connections with the people of Bankondji in order to bring students on service-learning trips in the future.
