Foundation

For the Children of Cameroon & Beyond

Our Mission

Since our founding in 2017, everyone at Thérèse Dipoumbi Foundation has been dedicated to the same goal:

ensuring that the educational needs and wants of children are met.

Our Inspiration

Thérèse Dipoumbi 

Spent the majority of her life working to give children hope through education in Douala, Cameroon. She and her husband, Simon Pierre Dipoumbi, founded COPSECO and Nanga schools in 1975. After her husband passed away in 2002, she was committed to continuing the work. She had very little means, but refused to leave any child behind. Unfortunately, Thérèse was tragically killed in 2015, leaving the community at a loss. We're picking up where Thérèse left off.

Our Impact

Scholarships

Many families can't afford the cost of attendance. This keeps kids out of school, and makes it harder to pay teachers. To date, the foundation has provided scholarships for over 100 children.

 

Summer School

The Foundation has funded 2 summer programs to make sure that no child is left behind.

Fans 

Classrooms can get as hot as 90° F, making it impossible for students to focus. The schools have benefited greatly from the addition of industrial fans.
 

Books

Reading helps transform minds. The primary school library needed updating; and the secondary school had no library at all. With the help of book donations, we have changed that.
