Opportunity Details


PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

We are a young, committed, apolitical and non-profit making organization with its headquarters in the Tubah sub-division of the North West Region of Cameroon. Founded in 2009 by a trained agriculturalist and community development activist Tobby Bond NJAMNGANG, this organization is dedicated to Bringing HOPE and TRANSFORMATION to the Forgotten Poor and Persons with Special Needs through a range of programs and activities. The organization is managed by a group of dynamic and concerned youths including men and women of goodwill.

We use agriculture and education to promote sustainable development and progress. But we are not limited to this because we aim on tackling other fields. We have since creation been identifying and working for and with underprivileged people in the four villages that make up Tubah sub division viz: Bambui, Kedjom Keku, Bambili and Kedjom Ketingo. Our team has been carrying out sensitization and educative talks on important health issues like HIV/AIDS, Diabetes, Hypertension and other common pandemics including the cleaning of the environment through the eradication of mosquitoes rendering it malaria-free. We educate parents on the importance of sending children to schools in order to curb the high rate of illiteracy plus work with poor families and disabled people to improve their livelihoods through better farming practices. We also provide education and healthcare support/sponsorship to some participants because we have so far identified hundreds of thousands of them that really should benefit from our work. But they all cannot not be helped for the absence of the wherewithal including the state of homelessness for some.

DELIVERABLES

Th project is already a success because I founded the Seed of Hope Foundation, a charity organization and now head the agricultural department of the organization. I work with my team to improve the livelihoods and living conditions of poor families and disabled people through better farming practices. We also provide education and healthcare to participants. Through the Seed of Hope, my charitable foundation I have given hope to many especially those at the margins of society.

 There is a lot more to be done which we find it difficult just because we have very limited financial and material resources. We are confident that with grants and donations from philanthropist and donor foundation/organizations we will do much better. This is the main reason we are seeking an experteer to support us with fundraising because we really do not have expertise on it. That is experteer who can:

  • Create and coordinate global fundraising campaigns 
  • Search for international donor organizations/foundations or institutions, Philanthropist and potential donors
  • Write bid applications (with the close support of the charity leadership team)
  • Pilot a crowdfunding campaign including any other possible fundraising activity.
