Mission Statement

To plant seeds of hope, change and opportunity in schools, individuals and communities around the world through education, sports and clean water with a focus on Africa.

Description

Our current efforts is focused on Cameroon, Africa. Through fundraising events, activities and outside support, Plant a Seed provides financial support for education, sports and community development, working directly with schools, communities and individuals.

At present, there is a large need for school fees and/or Parent-Teacher Association fees. Admission to school in Cameroon is contingent upon the ability to pay these fees, especially in the secondary schools. Most children and their families are unable to afford these fees to go to school or learn a trade. When they do managed to come up with the fees, they can barely afford the textbooks, exercise books, pens, uniforms, shoes that they need to successfully go through school. As a result, they are left without the means to better themselves, their family or their community.

In order to ensure quality control, Plant A Seed provides donations only to schools, individuals and communities who have personally written and/or have asked for assistance. Charitable distribution is overseen personally by Ruth Akumbu. Those who donate will receive proof of their donation’s impact from the children, school or community it benefits.
