The Born's in Cameroon
Help Grace Tait Shelter become more self-sufficient. Consider
funding one of the following projects:
GRACE TAIT SHELTER PROJECTS:
We need $15,000 to start our first building on the new land. We need to move the children into town for their safety.
LAND FOR ORPHANAGE:
We want to move the children in closer to Bamenda. There is land 5 K outside of town that we can purchase. There are several good schools within2 K from the property. It is 1.5 acres of land for $60,000, We have raised $30,332 towards it.. We would use the current property to help train widows with small children how to start their own business and manage money etc... It would be a 2 year program and would be a huge blessing to young woman here in Cameroon.
We found a 10 hectare piece of land to rent for farming. If you are interested in helping to get it started we need $1000 for 2 years rent, $400 for the first round of seeds, $150 to move the tractor and farm equipment out to the land and another $300 to put a small secure building on the land for the equipment. Fund a portion or all of it to get this project up and running. .
$210 ($70 each for a younger aged male and 2 females) needed for a new breeding stock. .
Get involved by helping to improve the lives of Cameroonians
or consider helping meet some of our personal needs.
HOPE FILLED FUTURE PROJECTS:
Many have to travel several miles just to find a source of water that is not necessarily clean. It takes $1500 to put in a well with a hand pump in a remote village. Clean drinking water that is easily accessible changes the lives of Cameroonians who live in these villages.
We were given a lot of construction equipment. A huge blessing... but much of it wasn't well kept. So we need to repair some before we can use it. There is a brick making machine and bobcat we can use when we purchase the land, but we can also use to make money. We need around $1500 to get the machines serviced and running good again.
PROJECTS FOR US PERSONALLY:
We need a new engine for our 1998 Pajero. It has been an amazing vehicle and is still the main one we use when we travel to the village (we don't want to beat up our new(er) Jeep). An engine will cost us $3000. We also need good mud tires for our Jeep. That will cost $1200.
We need $1000 to do some much needed repairs on the house we rent in Cameroon
Another need we have is for piping and some cement to put in a public tap near our home. We have been without water for 6 months now. The water company is waiting for a water project being done by "the Chinese" to turn the water back on. It is a 3 year project and they are only 1 year into it. While the rainy season is going water isn't as much of a problem, but in a couple of months the dry season will be here and the people in this quarter will struggle to get good potable water. We need $500 to bring water from a nearby area and build a tap. Why won't the water company do this? Good question....because it's Africa and no one else is complaining so they can get away with it.
We want to eliminate the need for cooking over wood fires. We have discovered a relatively easy way to use "stinky gas"...methane produced from the septic that is on the property. We would no longer need to cook with wood or buy propane. We need piping, 3 barrels and some other misc. equipment... $350 would do this.
Need more goats (our guard dog has killed several.....:( ) They are $70 each and we could use several more
We have been blessed with solar panels that provide light for the children. We want to double the amount of lighting we have for better lighting during study time. We need an additional battery, solar panel and other misc etc. To do this we need $500
