Each parent or child was given 4 notebooks, a pencil and 2 ballpoint pens. Emotions ran high during testimonials. Many parents were all choked up at the fact that 44.5 Foundation kept its word! That doesn’t happen too often. Many kids joyously wished the founders of this initiative success and parents basically set the bar high by saying these kids are now 44.5 Foundation kids. If we remain committed to them, they stand better chances at being successful in school.

    SMART School Supplies Distribution
    • 44.5 Foundation has, through its Cameroon chapter, adopted SMART Bilingual Primary and Nursery School.. To kick off the 2021/2022  academic year, we decided to lend support to the staff  of the school through a sports wear  donation. The giveaway took place at the school premises. The staff of 27 were elated when informed that our Foundation was coming that afternoon to distribute their long desired uniforms. On account of the school’s limited budget, they did not have the funds to provide the teachers with the sports wear. After a brief welcome speech, we proceeded to the distribution of the sports wear to the staff.  The school administrator was full of praise for our continued support of the school. We stand by our promise to honor our commitments in assisting SMART BNPS as they strive to provide education to the less fortunate.
