Douala: NGO supports vulnerable children with didactic materials.
The donation of didactic materials was made ahead of the resumption of the 2023/2024 academic year. The humanitarian gesture was effectuated during a free donation ceremony of school kits on Thursday August 31, to some vulnerable school children residing at the Bonadiwoto/Boko village in Douala.
This was in view of putting a smile on the faces of children who find it difficult with the economic situation of the country to go back to school.
The organisation, represented by Abraham Nana, together with the Association Jeune Conscience Sawa, headed by Liyo Jean Carson, expressed joy in seeing the children benefit from their benevolence.
The school kits consisted of books, pens, pencils, painting and drawing materials, rulers, water bottles, and several others including a token given out to pupils and students ranging from Form One to Upper Sixth of both the English and French subsystems of education
According to the representative of the International Assistance for Children Cameroon, Abraham Nana, it was a joyful thing for them to put smiles on such beautiful faces.
“We are happy and satisfied to put a smile and joy on the faces of the kids. The objective of the International Assistance for Children is to bring help, financial and material assistance to children who don’t have much. This is the beginning of a new academic year and we thought it necessary to come and give some little token to them,” Nana said.
The beneficiaries, on their part, where overwhelmed with gladness for support given them at the time most needed.
Lois Tazi a class six pupil after receiving her parcel said: “I am very happy and excited for these items they have given me. It is going to help me in my studies to read and write”.
Another beneficiary, Sandrine Mbamchirie, an Upper sixth student, thanked the donors for the rare opportunity.
“I am very happy for these gifts, because it was not given to everybody. I wish that the donors do same next year so as to assist our parents send us to school,” she said.
About Int’l Assistance for Children
IAC is an international nongovernmental organisation created by humanitarian, Michel Nguidjol with main objective to assist vulnerable or less privileged children in the society in all spheres of life.

“After this, we are going to continue with our activities.

Probably in December we are going to do something for them,” Abraham Nana noted.
