I have been working for this organization for a couple of years and I really feel working on their projects and seeing steady progress, improving the lives of many, helping volunteers to gain practical experience as a reall call.
SeRep is really an organization with a promising future to help a wider community in a sustainable manner I wish to call on volunteers who wish to visit and work in SeReP projects to help and on the hand gain experience to do so without any doubt:
I work for Self reliance as a Technical adviser in areas of projects and grants. This is a great NGO with a great build-up. A lot of years in-putted to form a strong foundation on which all sorts of community interventions and development can be done. It is one of the NGOs if not the main, of which the people of Kumbo are proud of. They how ever are ripe for further advancement in TA as well as funding to implement great life changing programs and projects. Visit the site, contact the NGO and you will never regret the contact.
When I first decided to become a volunteer I knew that finding the appropriate organisation would play a key role in my overall experience, because it had to be one that kept me happy for a whole year. I was extremely lucky to have found SEREP, in the charming town of Kumbo, with a group of people who received me as a member of their own family. I was made to feel completely at home.
Working for a small NGO has the advantage that it offers the opportunity to explore the many different aspects of its operation, gives you the freedom to act with few constraints, there is always lots to become involved with, and you get to see the result of your efforts first hand. SEREP truly makes a positive impact within the community. Its driving force is the Director: an honest, hard working, self motivated man who has forged his own path dedicated to genuinely serve his community, without monetary compensation. His legacy is evidenced by the way in which people stop on the street to greet him fondly and show their respect and appreciation for him. He's an inspiring character.
I've gained much more than I gave back. I'll remain committed to this cause, will maintain my ties with the NGO, and will continue helping with its projects.
I have know self relaince now for mover 10 years. i volunteered there when I was a university student doing field trips, learning about NGO management and development work. they had their vocational center which taught kids onhand training and i was happy such students after few years could get employed and they did well. also helping women with income generating activities, small business mgt trainings, marketing, and raising grants to build health centers and water schemes in different communities made me have much respect for mr Fred and his team. your support to this organisation will go a long way to help many lifes in Cameroon where they work.

I'll like to asked for your kind support. I worked with this NGO a couple of years ago. Back then I supported the group to conduct several rural micro projects, among them this project to construct a bigger school building for their Vocational School which is mostly educating girls from Kumbo and the surrounding areas. Since then I'm supporting them with fundraising for their school construction project in a rural neighbourhood in Cameroons North-West-Province. Feel free to get in touch with me for further questions about the group or/and their project.
