May 6th, 2010 by admin

Oroko Cultural Association is a not-for-profit/tax exempt organization as defined by IRS Code 501(c) (3). Oroko is a tribe located in Ndian and part of Meme Divisions of Southwest Cameroon Region in West Africa. With the assistance of sponsors, we provide assist to Oroko children living in the villages, through “Sponsor an Oroko Child Project”. This project caters for the interests, growth, and development of all Oroko children living in the villages, attending Primary and Secondary Schools. It provides financial assistance to Oroko children motivating them to reach their full potential. Please see our website for more details.

However, these students (from 5yrs to 17years) leave schools each day deprived of critical tool for their success: TEXTBOOKS. Due to the extreme hunger and poverty in these areas, parents can not afford textbooks for their children. As a result, children are forced to attend school without reading materials.

We receive our funding from generous and sympathetic people like you and also from companies like yours. Will you help us meet our goal of placing a textbook in each student’s hand? Please send your donation to the address above with the check payable to Oroko Cultural Association, Inc. and the purpose for (always written on the bottom left of your check) should be “Textbooks for Oroko Students.”

On the other hand, please collect all your books from K-12, magazines, periodicals with only curriculum content and send them to the address above. Or please call the above number or send an email to the above email address to arrange for a pick up. The value of the school supplies and postal cost will be sent to you for tax purpose. We will recognize your gift with labels on each school supplies that will tell all our students that it was you who invested in their academic success. In addition, your name or your company’s name and logo will be added to our website as our sponsor. Your gift of school supplies will have significant impact on their abilities to maintain their studies and successfully graduate.

Thank you for partnering with our students
