Programs: Global Friendship international (GFI) takes a more holistic approach to provide children with books, didactics, and uniforms, pay restrictive fees, and negotiate with schools to reduce and/or eliminate schools fees, train teachers and care givers with life and livelihood skills. Teachers will be trained in recognizing the behavioral problems associated with Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC). Caregivers trained in life and livelihood skills will be able to feed children and help them live. ERADICATING POVERTY THROUGH ICT SKILLS IN CAMEROON Computer skills and internet access are directly related with poverty eradication and social development for the underprivileged, underserved people and their communities. While Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is a compulsory subject in Cameroon, did you know that many children, women and youth never get the chance to learn basic computer skills through an actual computer? Our goal is to open free computer training centers for children, women and youths in South West Region, Cameroon to enable underprivileged and undeserved Cameroonians to be connected with our ever-changing, digital world of information.
