Need: Fund raise for 'female Orphans to enroll and stay in school' in Rural Cameroon

Dear all,
We are in the middle of a fundraising project on GlobalGiving.org and would greatly appreciate if you can share the project among your networks.

The project context is matrilineal succession in which the widow and her orphans are dispossessed of their property and belonging upon the death of their husband/father. With this dispossession,girl orphans become the most vulnerable and are forced into early child marriages, child trafficking to work as house mates in urban cities,sexually abused and exposed to HIV/AIDS ( in a 2011 survey of street girls in the Northwest region of Cameroon, it was reported that female orphans on the streets were the most infected with HIV/AIDs. Personal discussion with the Divisional Delegate of Women and Promotion of the family).By sending these orphans to school and buying a livestock which will help ensure their stay and completion of school, the project will enable them to take informed decisions as well as escape the traps described above.
