Motto: Hope for the Underprivileged

The Afoni Children of Hope Foundation (ACOHOF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the upliftment of underprivileged children and impoverished communities in the Republic of Cameroon. Its mission is to empower disadvantaged and vulnerable people, especially young boys and girls, to become self-reliant and valuable contributors to their local communities.

 

Over the years, ACOHOF has broadened its scope and refined its focus to become one of the leading humanitarian and development associations for underprivileged communities in rural and semi-urban areas of Cameroon.

Since its inception, the Afoni Children of Hope Foundation has envisioned a community where all disadvantaged and vulnerable persons, especially children, are empowered to play a central role in the societal development process and lead normal, happy lives with dignity and self-esteem.

 

ACOHOF works directly with those in need to promote self-reliance and uphold their dignity. They offer a range of valuable programs, including basic education and Vocational Training, Community Health Outreach, Water, Sanitation, Hygiene (WASH), Community Human Rights Action, and Emergency and Humanitarian Relief. Through these programs, ACOHOF brings hope and transformation to the lives of those they serve, creating a better future for all.

 

ACOHOF has done a great job in the community with its various projects. Among them, the ACOHOF Family Farm Schools in Tatum and Bankim have been very well received and have been serving the community since their establishment in 2014 and 2020, respectively. The ACOHOF Community Radio is also a fantastic initiative that has played an important role in bringing the community together.

 

The ACOHOF - EWB Sweden Partnership

The cooperation between Afoni Children of Hope Foundation (ACOHOF) and Engineers Without Borders (EWB) Sweden is remarkable. Together they realized several inspiring projects, including the Water Disinfection System (WADIS 2 & 3), Solar Water Disinfection (SODIS), Renewable Energy and Computers for Schools. Mr. Stefan Karneb├Ąck's contribution to these initiatives is truly outstanding. This partnership is of utmost importance and we commend ACOHOF - Cameroon and EWB Sweden for their continued efforts to make a positive impact.

Have you ever considered using the power of the sun to cook delicious meals, fry food or bake bread for your family? It's an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way to cook, and the best part is that you don't need firewood, gas or electricity. Our partners at EWB Sweden have trained us to use the sun's energy to generate high temperatures using solar parabolas or box stoves. Many people are curious about how it works because sunlight doesn't have heat, but the truth is that it generates energy through electric and magnetic fields, resulting in radiation and light waves. So why not try this innovative and sustainable way of cooking and join the growing movement towards a greener future?

We are committed to building strong and self-sufficient communities by creating programs that are inclusive and focused on achieving our goals. Our organization is dedicated to educating underprivileged children, providing vocational training to develop essential skills, supporting those affected by Muscular Dystrophy and other Rare Diseases, promotion of Musical Talent, and providing Basic Necessities to those in need through our annual Back to School with ACOHOF program. We also provide computer literacy training to help bridge the digital divide and equip individuals with the skills they need to succeed in today's world.
