Association Léon is back in Africa!
Since Perrine de la Fouchardière – a friend of Association Leon – moved to Cameroun, she has been on the look-out for sustainable educational projects needing support. She recently met Josette, in charge of CEREN, an association which exists since 1974 and is currently taking care of 82 abandoned children in Ntolo in the Douala surroundings. CEREN offers them shelter, food, medical support and, when needed, even psychological supervision. Perrine visited the center and was impressed with its good organisation and the fact that the kids living there feel genuinely « at home ».
Josette is looking for funding to cover academical fees for 60 kids and Association Leon is extremely happy to participate in this project.
With this help, the kids will be able to attend school, buy their books and school supplies. The future just got brighter for 60 children in Cameroun!
