We are delighted to welcome the following volunteers who joined our team during July, August, September and through December.
We are grateful for the contribution that volunteers continue to make to the work of our organisation. Your help is appreciated and we will do everything to make sure that your experience here is a positive one. Dedicated volunteers have helped CAPEC become what it is today. By sharing your special skills you play an important part in helping to meet the needs of children. Thank you for your gift of time.
Our volunteer program is open to: student seeking internship, unemployed graduates seeking professional experience, professionals that are yet to be employed and anyone with a zeal and feeling that they have something to offer to the development of the society (age, education, race, colour, and physical condition) are not a prerequisite.
Katie Richards, UK
Katie arrived in Yaoundé on the 27th of August and has been very busy with work at school, assisting the driver- Ako to pick up children in the morning and teaching Class two. Here’s what Katie says about herself: I am from Manchester, England, and am currently working on my degree in modern languages at the University of Edinburgh. I have never been to Cameroon before and I am enjoying my experience of a different culture. I am here in Cameroon from end of August until December. As for random facts, I love reading Jane Austen novels and listening to Johnny Cash and I speak Arabic.

Here’s what Katharina says about herself:
I am from Pommelsbrunn. It is a small village near Nuernberg, Germany. I am going to stay here for one year, so I am leaving in September 2012. This is my first time to an African country, but I enjoy my stay here a lot, however it is very different to Germany. I look forward to collect new experiences and get known to the Cameroonian culture. At the weekend I read, do some sports and make fun with the two girls, who are living with me.
