The first ever Food For Funds (FFF) event raised $2,645.22 (CFA 1,203,337).
The funds will be used to help rural women in and around Buea to start or grow small businesses that are the only means of livelihood for the family.
The funds were raised through 16 generous donors during the first ever Food For Funds (FFF) event that took place in Buea, Cameroon and Arlington, USA on October 14, 2007.
In the next few weeks we will give out loans of about CFA 50,000 (about US$109) each to about 20-25 people (mostly women).
Our offering basket is still open and remains open throughout. Will you consider making a donation to change a family? We very strongly encourage to take action and do something. Together, we can make a difference!
