Over 200 underprivileged children including Internally Displaced Persons have received school needs donated by one NGO called, Bisong Foundation in collaboration with the ministry of Social Affairs. This was on the occasion of this year’s edition of the International Day of the Child in Mbouda with calls to protect and promote Children’s Right’s especially the right to education.
Children in the Bamboutos Division face various forms of abuse including physical, emotional, sexual as well as parental neglect but in access to quality education, remain one of the greatest challenge. The Bmaboutos Divisional Delegate for Social Affairs, Solange GNOUPEYOU said such disturbing issues can only be fully addressed through a concerted action. The Bisong Foundation through the Co-Founder, Hortence MANTO BISONG, Godmother of the underprivileged children responded positively to her call by donating school needs and financial assistance to over 200 primary and secondary school children including Internally Displaced Persons.
Beneficiaries joined administrative, municipal and religious officials to hail the Bisong Foundation for their countless humanitarian actions in support of the underprivileged, saying it is a veritable example of participatory development. The children received acclaim for a range of stage performances during celebrations to mark the International Day of the African Child in the Bamboutos division.
