Committed to Enriching the Lives of Youth
Children’s ark foundation is a newly created NGO orphanage based in Bonaberi, Douala Cameroon my vision is to create a self sustaining safe and stable environment to care and nurture orphans, abandoned and displaced children who have almost no hope, until they are able to live an independent and productive life for themselves.
I aim to achieve this vision by combining a refuge centre with an agricultural small holding which will not only provide an income to sustain the centre but also a valuable education and vocational training for the children.

social life and adapting to society
Taking the kids to a play ground, swimming and other social activities where they can interact with other kids and create new friendships is one of our strategies to integrate the kids in society and remind them they are just as worthy as every other kid or person on the planet
please Join Our Fundraiser
we are currently raising funds to be able to get a better accommodation for the children. The current home is not only small with no space for the children to run around freely and play but unfortunately it also floods during the rainy season. This flooding has caused the children to be sick repeatedly and it also reduces their quality of life since the children need to stay in bed for hours at a time while the adults try to take out the water. We sincerely believe that a better place to stay will have a positive impact on the children's health not only physically but psychologically as well.
