NVT-2023

Project Overview:

Gwinnett Veterans Soccer Club (GVET), as a 501c3 non-profit organization, is committed to supporting the local community and helping underprivileged children, especially orphaned children in Cameroon. On December 21 and 23, GVET conducted charitable events to aid two orphanages in Cameroon, Save the Children Alliance Orphanage (SATCAO) and Network Empowerment Center for Training, Advocacy, and Rehabilitation (NECTAR) by supplying them with food supplies and lockers for clothes worth $1,635. This report provides a detailed account of the charity cause, its objectives, achievements, impact, and financial report of the charity donation.

GVET members have consistently recognized the significance of supporting our local community in the United States and our homeland community in Cameroon. We would like to express our deep appreciation and sincere gratitude to all those members who helped financially in the successful planning and execution of this project. We urge all members to always collaborate with the GVET Executive to develop and provide assistance that would significantly impact our community.

Target Organizations:

We identified two orphanages with limited basic food needs and the lack of locker for clothes, including:
SATCAO: Save the Children Alliance Orphanage (SATCAO) in Limbe
• There were 25 orphaned children (15 on campus and 10 in the outreach program) enrolled in the program
• They needed food and nutrition assistance.
• (4) four lockers for boys and girls were highly needed to store the children’s clothes.
NECTAR: Network Empowerment Center for Training, Advocacy, and Rehabilitation, Bamenda
• The program currently supports 50 children (20 on campus and 30 in the outreach program), including orphans and disabled children.
• They needed food and nutrition assistance.

We worked with the coordinators of SATCAO and NECTAR, Mr. Ivaan Ngale and Mrs. Loveline Tuma, respectively. We also collaborated with some GVET members visiting Cameroon and a few non-GVET representatives in Bamenda to successfully execute the project at SATCAO and NECTAR on December 21 and 23, respectively.
