SAINT ANNE CATHOLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION PROJECT, NEW MELONG – CAMEROON
The first major VHCHE project to improve study conditions of over 300 students at a K-6 school in New-Melong, Cameroon. Saint Anne Catholic School was created in 1965 and currently experiences serious infrastructure challenges, including old and collapsing school buildings, lack of school supplies, first aid room, trained nurse, and drinking water.
VHCHE grants, in five months time, have supported the construction, electrical wiring and lighting, and interior finishing of two new classrooms, an office with a rear window, a wider front sidewalk the length of the building, and two toilets.
The grants also provided for the complete renovation of two existing buildings with six classrooms at St. Anne Catholic School.
Thanks to contributions from Virginia Knights of Columbus Councils and Assemblies, the Virginia State Council, the Mount Vernon Columbus Club, and many contributions from individual Knights and other benefactors.
Students at St. Anne’s now have access to a better facility.
Viridiane’s Hope remains open to undertake new projects in rural and underserved communities around the world that aligns with its mission.
A DRINKING WATER WELL AND TWO TOILETS FOR DISPLACED CHILDREN IN THE VILLAGE OF YABASSI, CAMEROON
The children of the village of Yabassi, Cameroon in West Central Africa go to school each day in 95-degree heat. But there is no clean water to drink. This is often the case in the rural villages of Cameroon. In each family, someone has the job to go to the local stream a mile or so from the home and fill a bucket of water for the day. To draw water, the people of the village wade into the stream to get their water, then the silt must be allowed to sink to the bottom of the bucket before using the water. The 70 children at the orphanage/school in Yabassi, have no toilets to use. There is an area behind the shack that serves as a school room where children may relieve themselves in the bushes. VHCHE is a US organization based in Springfield, VA, and which builds wells, schools and restrooms for schools and churches in the rural villages of Cameroon where the average daily wage for most families is $1.25 per day. $20,000 will bring clean water and sanitary restrooms to children in the village of Yabassi. With your donation, the teachers in this orphanage/school will have a well with a 1,000-gallon storage unit to store well water, and two restrooms for children so they don’t have to use the bushes. With clean water and sanitary restrooms, children will stay healthy enough to learn.
