We are a group of people who help children from Cameroon.
Why just from Cameroon?
This is one of many countries where it is particularly difficult to be a child. It's hard to survive, let alone get an education. If, in addition, you come from a poor family, and you are a girl, or even worse - a disabled person or a disabled girl, only black scenarios write the fate.
For such children our association was founded. Because only outside help can change their lives.
The originator and founder is a lawyer who "made her a helping tool". Thanks to its practical knowledge, experience and commitment, we are more effective.
It all began with the reflex of the heart of Father Dariusz, the Dominican. Under the roof, or more precisely, under the roof of the church, he took in about 14 children. Previously, they were left alone, practically on the street (the youngest was three years old). He provided them with care, food, education, and paid for the doctor.
Ten years ago our paths interlocked, as it turned out to be longer. Now, we are straightening together the uneasy routes of African children. We have already managed a lot, but we will definitely have more to come.

What we have
We have built a Foyer St. Dominique. These are two children's homes in Yaounde, the capital of Cameroon. The first one was introduced in 2011, the second one was created in 2013. Both houses are located in a fenced area. They have 11 single rooms.
Child care home
Our Children's Home has access to electricity, running water and sewage, which in Cameroon is a high standard. The efficient functioning of the Foyer is primarily due to Father Darek. He is assisted by Marianne and Achille and the cook Jeanne, commonly called by us Jasiek, as well as Adèle - a teacher helping to teach those children who need it.
