The background of Midjivin

Midjivin is a small town located in the extreme north of Cameroon, near Kaele, in a region as arid as the Sahel. Its economy is based on farming and agriculture, though cultivation methods remain primitive.

Some of the works of the Daughters of Charity

The Daughters of Charity have been at the service of the people of Mudjivin and the surrounding villages since 1972 through health visits, cares to the lepers, maternal and child care, adult literacy, and the animation of groups of children and evangelization in collaboration with the catechists of the villages.

They opened a nursery school in 1997, as well as the primary school St Catherine Labouré, the training center “Marguerite Naseau” and an old people’s home in 2004.

A call

For a few years, there has been a need to keep track of the students who had completed their primary education at St Catherine Labouré.

The Daughters of Charity opened a first secondary school class at the parents’ request with students from all the area. This is the only one of the department and the second of the diocese.
These young people come from poor families who make great sacrifices to send them to school and cannot afford to buy books. Not being able to own a book or to bring it home slows the learning of the students.

 

The origins of the project

DC Lorraine, who has been in charge of young people, initiated the project aiming at financing school books, so that every sixth grader can simply have a book and learn.

Project funding

Total cost of the project is €2,112, including the purchase of 50 Maths, French, Spanish, German, Sciences, Computer Science and English books.

Thus €50 are enough to pay for all the books a secondary student needs for a year.

Studying with a book, learning and receiving a formation which provides future opportunities are basic principles at the core of school education.

 

With your contributions you provide a future to the girls and boys of Midjivin’s secondary school.
