Our Mission, Vision, Values

“We will guarantee low cost school fees for poor families, create jobs and enable families to be self reliant.”

Collette A. - Founder


CAPEC's vision is of a world in which all children realize their full potential in societies that respect people's rights and dignity.


Every franc you give to CAPEC goes to the program you designate. CAPEC is 100% efficient. It's great to share. Your donation enables us to keep on helping the vulnerable and needy children in Cameroon. CAPEC is entirely self-funding through donations from private individuals, foundations, and businesses, both large and small.


To promote human values through advocacy and community outreach programs, Girl Child Enhancement Programs (GCEP), basic non-formal/formal education and vocational skills training initiatives for vulnerable children and out-of-school youth in view of building a sustainable community with improved standards of living. The main objective is to enhance their opportunities to realize their full potential and capabilities

We aim to provide education to the children of the rural area of Nkolfoulou, so they would not be deprived of education based on their locality or family financial circumstances. Most of the foster families and guardians, who already have limited resources as it is, are often not equipped to assist the growing number of these children.

CAPEC's wish is to put up a structure which will guarantee low cost fees for poor families create jobs and become self sufficient. The school also welcome children from middle class families .CAPEC attempts to bridge the gap between rich and poor by offering good quality education for the most underprivileged.It is also relevant to understand that this village has no libraries or ICT training opportunities for young people Whereas government-run schools in Cameroon focus primarily on memorization and repetition, CAPEC nursery and primary school is unique because it values child-centre education. This means that class sizes are small, and teachers give individual attention.By focusing on these areas, CAPEC is attempting to embrace new pedagogical methods that encourage a deeper understanding of the material. As a result of this approach, CAPEC pupils are able to learn more advanced material than their peers in the public system.

CAPEC hoped to provide food for its students when we finally build a kitchen.Teachers realized that in order to learn effectively, children need to have enough energy. Since some children did not take breakfast before coming to school, a proper lunch would be part of the educational program.Apart from a radically different educational approach, CAPEC also wish to offers a number of innovative additional programs to facilitate its pupils in learning and personal development. Among these are the availability of special learning days, the yearly Christmas celebration, and the summer holiday program.

We intend to add more programs as years goes by. Because the children keep increasing every year, CAPEC is in need of financial help to add more classrooms for the children. For information on the new project and how you can help, see the Special Project.
