From Bonazah Community Development of Africa Team.
Bonazah Community Development of Africa and Sunny Village Foundation joined forces at Microsoft’s Africa Day on 11 October, 2016, at Microsoft’s Commons Nonprofit Fair; Microsoft is a strong supporter of charities around the world – they encourage employees to donate freely throughout the year, and culminate the drive with an annual event in October of each year… this year’s theme was Africa Day, so it was a perfect setting for these two non-profit charities to join together in an effort to help those in African communities who are in need of our support.
Travel to the Microsoft campus in Redmond was a miracle in itself… the week had been full of rain and sunless days, but on the 11th, everything turned out to be clear and wonderful. The Bonazah contingent made it into the Commons cafeteria first, and setup the desk where we would share our message with (literally) thousands of Microsoft employees as seen in above shot of our setup.
Microsoft made it really easy to do the setup, too… connection drops for free Internet service right by each desk they had setup for the charities participating… an individual BARCODE right on the table, so employees could just scan the code into their phones and make their contribution right from the phone… we couldn’t have asked for anything better. As the lunch hour progressed, many folks began to stop by our booth, looking for information on how to contribute… here’s a group shot of the activity at the Bonazah/Sunny Village desk: Some contributions have already been received from this gathering… our thanks go out to all who contributed, and those who picked up our materials for a possible future contribution to Bonazah/Sunny Village efforts to aid those in need in Africa. We were proud to have been selected for this Microsoft event, and look forward to participating in many other events like it around the country.

Government School Abichia Village Enhancement Initiative A Betterways Africa International (BAI) and Bonazah Community Development of Africa (BOCODA)
Community Support Partnership Initiative
Following a request from the Abichia village community for organizational and financial and management support and assistance for the construction of minimal school facilities for its only primary school, Betterways Africa International, a non-profit organization based in Bamenda, Cameroon responded favorably. The Project beneficiary is Government School Abichia, Ngie Subdivision, in the North West Region, Cameroon.
Abichia is a remote village in the Ngie subdivision in the North West Region of Cameroon in West Africa. The inhabitants of Abichia village are mostly subsistence peasant farmers, and are not able afford capital investment such as buildings for the school on their own. They people are peace-loving and hard-working community and are hardly reached by development opportunities. Despite Government efforts over the years, the schools infrastructure mainly consists of two recently constructed classrooms, and dilapidated mud and palm front huts. There is no portable water point for the school. See pictures attached. The recent efforts of the Government in constructing two new classrooms creates a positive context and paves the way for successful implementation this project to complete the revitalization of basic primary school facilities for the over 300 children and Abichia and neighboring villages.
Overall Project Objective:
The projects involve the construction and equipment of five classrooms, two toilets, and a portable water facility for Government School Abichia, over the next 5 years. Following initial preparations, BAI launched in partnership with the beneficiary village community and moral encouragement of the local area Andek Council in December 2015. This project will supplement the efforts of the Government which constructed two classrooms for the village in 2014, making a total of 6 classrooms and a shared office space for the teachers, a separate space for the Head Teacher, and a portable water point. The school facilities aim to give services to 300 primary school children from Abichia and neighboring villages. It will enhance access and quality of education for children in this remote, rural community, and increase the attendance rates. With a population of about 300 primary children of school age , the people who themselves expressed a desire for this project have been seeking for a prospective infrastructural face-lift of the school and are willing to invest their own time and effort for the construction.
Current Status of the Project
Following various preparatory initial resources provided by the Founder of BAI, the construction of two classrooms was launched in late 2015. Progress achieved included:
Given the forward-looking momentum created by the construction of two classrooms by the Government, this project seeks build to contribute further to the creation of:

Mama Nkemasong rose is married with four (4) children and renting in Ntamulung, at age 45 she has been through a lot of challenges raising her kids and sending them to school. Her husband is a local market career with limited income to sustain all the children’s need, pay rents and take care of her bills. Over the years madam Rose has been struggling to do petit trading in order to raise income that can assist in sponsoring her children to school and also feeds the house.
Unfortunately she has never been lucky as her children could not carry on with education as she and her husband intended due to the lack of capital to do petit trading.
Coming in contact with Bonazah Community Development of Africa Cameroon, mama rose attended our four weeks business training alongside 10 others and thanks to your support she was awarded a financial support to start up a business on her own and sustained her family. Thanks to the support she has now started a petit trading selling pear, sweet yams, plums, and other food items at the Bamenda food markets.
