IN-HOME SPONSORSHIPS BEGIN- CAMEROON
CameroonONE was in Douala, Bamenda, and Belo to initiate the preliminary stages of our In-Home Sponsorship Program. The In-Home project was designed to take kids out of the orphanages and place them in the homes of the surviving members of their families and loosely based off of the Brazilian government's Bolsa Familia program that provides monthly funds to families so long as their children are attending school and are receiving their vaccinations. CameroonONE sees a need to address the orphan situation through a different approach than other organizations in the region; the solution is not simply to confine these children to the peripheries of society. The methods presently designed to deal with orphans and their families need to be reassessed.
