My Father Mr. Cho Martin Ngafor was a dedicated teacher who used our dining room to teach children whose parents could not afford their basis of primary education. After he passed away so many of these children remained at home. They could not afford the basis or primary education due to lack of financial support from their immediate families. Today in 21st centurary the provision of effective and affordable education still continues to be a challenging task in some hard to reach communities in Cameroon, Illiteracy keep affecting the human population in a seemingly non-ending circle, in the same way literacy keeps affecting the human population in a seemingly non ending circle
Educating a child was everything to Him
Meanwhile education breeds confidence and development. It opens doors, expands opportunities, contributes to economic growth, reduce poverty as well as improve health. Seeing the need for Education in hard to reach communities in Cameroon, this Foundation was therefore created in honour of the Late Mr. Cho Ngafor, a dedicated Primary/Scondary school Teacher who taught children in his dinning room because their families could not support them to go to school.....
My journey - How it all began
To keep the legacy of my Dad, the Cho Ngafor Foundation was created. owing to my Visit in Cameroon I met so many children my father use to teach at home. no means to go to school. so wee decide to support these children gain the basis of primary education, we signed successful agreement with the school in the vicinities.
Year after year we always organised end of school year activities with he school children. On one of these activity day two girl could not be part because they ever menstruating. the sat in class waiting for everyone to leave then the use the window as an exit door to go home. I enquired where they get any for of help or how do they manage menstruation both this information was lacking. That was a call for concern and thus our urge to support girls and women. Our work in puri and hard to reach communities remains a challenge but not an impossibility. We empower, educate and support the people, open them doors to a world of sustainable economic opportunities thus ensuing that no one is left behind.
We started supplying disposable pads to the needy. Two years later the number in demand of pads grew from 30 to 320. This became heavy. This gave the birth to our alternativer solution then Dorena Washable pads initiative.
Thanks to Our amazing team of regulars and part-time workers/volunteers committed to helping others and the vision of the organisation to achieve its objectives.
