OUR PROGRAMS

We offered educational opportunities to 74 children in the academic year 2019/2020. These children have been out of school for more than three years since war broke out in the English speaking part of Cameroon in 2016.
There are thousands of children out of school since then. These children have been displaced, lost their homes, parents, and have been out of school with little or no financial or emotional support. We sent them back to school, thanks to our benefactors. We can reach out to many more with your help.

Marie Claire graduates with a college diploma in Banking and Finance, in 2023, sponsored by SEV Foundation.

Marie

Marie Claire is a remarkable young woman who has just graduated with excellent results in the college diploma program on Banking and Finance. She is determined to attain a bachelor’s degree in banking and Finance. Although brilliant, Marie Claire lost both her parents when she was 5 years old. Her grandmother who took care of her was sickly and had no job.  Marie Claire dropped out of school after completing primary education because of a lack of finances. Her grandmother unfortunately also died when Marie Claire was 14 years old.

Fortunately, when Marie Claire came in contact with the SEV Foundation one year after she dropped out of school, she has since then been sponsored by the SEV Foundation through secondary, high school, and university. She recently graduated with a Diploma in Banking and Finance and is pursuing her BA in the same. Marie Claire is an intelligent young woman whose dignity, self-confidence, and self-reliance have been redeemed and re-assured by the SEV Foundation. Despite being an orphan, Marie Claire dreams of making a difference in her family and in the world as a banker. She expresses her gratitude to the foundation for allowing her to gain new skills and for giving her hope. At SEV Foundation, we serve disadvantaged children who aspire to impact their communities positively.
