CEFONEV INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY OF EXCELLENCE (CIAE)
A School for Internally Displaced Children at Ebebda- Lekie Division in the Centre Region of Cameroon
CEFONEV has been instrumental in educating vulnerable children, especially the Internally Displaced Children (IDPs) in the society. Since the inception of the crisis in Cameroon in 2016, we have been championing the admission of a lot of these children into various schools in the capital, Yaoundé and its environs. We have equally been providing learning material for some and even foot the payment of tuition for the very desperate cases. Then for the 2021-2022 academic year, we went a step further and Cefonev International Academy of Excellence (CIAE, Ebebda) was created in Ebebda, a neighboring village in the outskirts of the capital city, Yaounde, entirely French speaking. This initiative came to meet the dire need for education for the children of over six hundred (600) IDP families stationed there. Due to the lack of an English Secondary School in Ebebda, these children found themselves out of school for four years. The consequences were devastating among which are; early marriages, unwanted pregnancy, child trafficking, prostitution, etc. We were therefore left with no choice but to give them a school to educate them and thus, stop the ills in the society.
Today, two years after, we are counting one hundred and nine students, next academic year we are expecting many more. However, the high demand for education in Ebebda has left us with a lot of challenges as well. The most disturbing is the nonavailability of enough space to accommodate all these students. So, CEFONEV looks forward to constructing a modern school comprising of a Grammar, a technical and Commercial sections with bigger classrooms where these children and other Cameroonians willing to study in English could be educated.
CEFONEV is soliciting support from Well-Wishers and Philanthropists who are passionate about seeing these children become responsible people tomorrow for a better and more prosperous nation.

TOGETHER, WE CAN CHANGE THE LIVES OF THE NEEDY AND VULNERABLE
Nache Edith Tankong.
A testimony of the IDPs at Ebebda.
We are a group of people who fled from the fierce fighting in the English speaking part of Cameroon, specifically from Wum, North West region of the country. Some of us cheated death when many of our brothers and sisters were shot in cold blood right before us. A few lucky ones like some of us managed to escape with our love ones for our dear lives. We got to Ebebda with no clothes and nothing to show for. We barely could eat, pregnant and nursing mothers slept on bare floor. Life was not moving at all until CEFONEV came to our rescue.

I am an IDP from the North West Region of Cameroon. Following the ongoing crisis in the North West and South West regions of Cameroon in 2016, schools were interrupted and I was just staying at home. In 2017, I had no choice than to move to Yaoundé hoping for the best but life experience then was a bitter one. I had to move from one house to another doing house help jobs in other to fetch for my needs. But those who opted to offer me a job in their homes gave me inhuman treatments. But one day I came in contact with CEFONEV, a center with a mission of helping vulnerable women and girls to achieve their desired dreams in life. The center has helped train me in employment and marketable skills such as income generating activities and a series of educative talks. These skills have helped me raise money for my school and other needs. Today I am a happy student of the University of Yaoundé I studying Geography thanks to CEFONEV. I’m very grateful to be a beneficiary. I thank God for CEFONEV.
