We believe there are many people like us who wish contribute something of our wealth to benefit others - so we provide a safe and reliable conduit for people who want to help African children aspire to a brighter future, through access to a good education.
We guarantee that every penny donated to our charity will go towards the construction of new classroom blocks, new latrines and clean drinking water in remote rural communities in Cameroon.

Each year, SHUMAS receives hundreds of applications from rural villages asking help to rebuild their local schools. They take into account the dilapidated state of the current school buildings and the community's readiness to help build their own new classrooms.
It is these schools that we are raising money for: to change these old schools into new ones.
It costs so little to build a village primary school in Cameroon, and each school improves the lives of thousands of children.
