BACK TO SCHOOL
For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.
Leaving school without completing (drop out), is a very serious problem suffered by children and young adults in Cameroon. Our goal is to assist orphaned, disabled and struggling family youths continue their education.
We equip our beneficiaries with school Uniform, fees, Books, writing materials and other school supplies. The more we can adequately prepare our children for the school year and get them fully engaged on time, the more successful our community will become.
“I use to carry my school supplies in a plastic bag says a volunteer. It made me feel much better to be like the other children in my class”.
Your donation of $88 will entirely sponsor a child in secondary/High school through an academic year.
HOME FOR BABIES
See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven -Matthew 18:10
Our facility is open to and admitting abandoned babies. We are looking out for babies who do not have a belonging family. We offer accommodation, feeding, vaccinations, regular medical checks and complete child care to such infants.
However, at CETALF we believe abandoned babies are not only less privileged but are also the most vulnerable group of individuals though very hopeful. We ensure that babies in our facility are cared for, nurtured and raised the best way possible, to enjoy the privileges of life like every other baby born to a biological family.
Most needs for the babies’ upkeep (food stuff, clothing, and more) are bought locally, to promote the Cameroon economy. “We want things you do not need. Those you spare, we can wear and be happy” -The babies cry to you.
You can help sponsor a baby with your gift of $10 per day.
TRADE AND SKILLS
“Entrepreneurship is neither a science nor an art. It is a practice” -Peter Drucker
This program is exclusively for the disabled. There are children who dropped out of school because of their disability.The CETALF team believes every human being was created by God with unique skills/talents and for a purpose so, being born disabled doesn’t mean you are of no value to the community.With the help of each disabled child and their guardian, we examine each beneficiary’s mobility, likes, talents,skills and the available resources to find the best fit.
We further agree on the right activity fit which will make our disabled beneficiary have a sense of purpose daily and feel valuable to the society.CETALF either opens a provision store, start a trade,register a beneficiary for sewing,craft,art or music lessons.We believe after constant practice, the beneficiaries can start producing outputs which can be sold to generate income they will use to cater for themselves and families.
Donate $30 to buy a walk aid for a disabled child and you will help them move around daily like yourself.
CETAL starts a small business for orphaned Marinette who is disabled, struggling to raise her little baby and can not go back to school.

We call on all of us donors, funders, and philanthropies, to invest a portion of funding to increase the educational opportunities for the exceptionally promising students. This will be a gracious privilege for those who A’s the Advance Level examination, to continue into the University.
We know education will build in these children, the capacity to inspire other younger ones, become leaders, shape the future of communities and the world at large.
Stephen is a final year student in the University, sponsored by the CETALF scholarship program.
We encourage our older beneficiaries to volunteer as well in impacting the lives of other younger disadvantaged children.
