ASCOVIME is a non-profit organization which visits Cameroonian villages twice a month to help poor people. Its humanitarian activities iclude: Free health care distribution of didactic material, clothes, shoes, tooth brush and paste to teachers and pupils in primary schools in the villages distribution of birth certificates to kids of some villages in the far north These birth certificates • qualify them for the exam which permits them to pass from primary to secondary school • facilitate their lives as Cameroonian citizens This document is a brief report of: The 2012 distribution of these birth certificates in primary schools of Datcheka subdivision in the far north region of Cameroon and the distribution of didactic material Special thanks to: The sub-divisional officer of Datcheka who honoured this ceremony by: • supporting our work • distributing himself these certificates • and for the fiesta he gave to the ASCOVIME team The Mayor of Datcheka who accepted to be with us throughout that day and promised to establish 800 birth certificates before the end of January 2013 All the inspectors, head teachers and teachers of those primary schools Mr Boniface Bayaola, ASCOVIME head member, who received the team and provided transportation for the team and the staff ACAMAS who continues to support our work: this Turkish association in Cameroon offered 100 of the 400 birth certificates we distributed CLUB INTERNATIONAL LES GOURMETTES supported this humanitarian activity and helped establish 75 birth certificates ASCOVIME PARIS our French branch offered 40 birth certificates We did the rest
We decided to travel by road and our first stop was at a small primary school in the East region where we placed a sign board to indicate their presence and started the project of building the schoolâ€™s toilet
And then we continued our journey to Doukoula where we met Mr Bayaola Boniface who invited ASCOVIME to his village.
Distribution of shoes to kids so they can wear to school
First stop was at a primary school in Bouza in the Doukoula sub-division whose classrooms had been destroyed by the over flow of the river beds
that caused a flood in that area. The state of these classrooms should make an impact on our minds.
Unfortunately, the government and the local population have put little or no effort to build or renovate the classrooms.
But there is still much work left to be done and this requires the active participation of each and every one.
The pupils and the staff were amazing. They patiently waited for over ten hours in calm and extreme discipline for this activity which will make them better Cameroonians
Distribution of 400 birth certificates in different schools:
All the speeches called on the parents to establish their childrenâ€™s birth certificates at birth. At that point, they are free of charge.
Special thanks to the sub-divisional officer who personally distributed a multitude of birth certificates and who had drawn our attention to this delicate situation in these villages.
Special thanks to the Mayors of Doukoula and Datcheka who accepted to go with us that day from village to village.
To the â€? lawanâ€? chiefs of the villages who participated in the distribution of these birth certificates, we say thank you.
Parents satisfied to see the birth certificates of their children
And what do the children have to say?
Some head teachers requested for the contacts of Mr Bayaola so as to continue to solicit his kindness and also to keep us abreast with their daily struggles
As usual, ASCOVIME presented adequate didactic material to head teachers, teachers and pupils in the presence of the Inspector of primary education.
ďƒ˜ Special thanks to the Mayors of Doukoula and Datcheka who accepted to leave their duty posts to grace this ceremony with their presence
Mr Bayaola continues these activities in these poor villages
The packages for the teachers and head teachers
Satified teachers and head teachers
These new benches are a gift from elite from the village, who presented his gift the same day as ASCOVIME This activity was a great success on every aspect but it is difficult to talk of joy and happiness when we see what is still to be done. The efforts made by the government, other NGOs and elites should be applauded but you
