„The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.“ - Helen Keller
Rudolf is another typical success story of our organisation. Despite his shortcomings of being blind from birth, he never allowed that to stop him to quench his thirst for education and to contibute to the wellbeing of humanity.
We sponsored him to obtain a Bachelor Degree at the University of Buea, Department of Special Education. Thereafter, he was successful to be admitted into the Higher Teachers’ Training College Bambili affiliated to the University of Bamenda. We also stood behind him in taking care of his tuition and accomodation during the 2-year programme. He was at the Department of Guidance and Counseling.
Now he is awaiting his graduation and he will be assimilated into the Cameroonian Civil Service System as a High School Teacher.
He has made us so proud.
We use this singular opportunity to profusely thank all of our members, sponsors and donors of the organisation. Without your help, we would not have gone this far in the empowerment of children and young adults.
We are happy and touched.
Akuma Saningong, PhD

A person shouldn’t be dependent on another for existence. For this reason, the KAC e.V. is trying to alleviate the situation of its stipend beneficiaries by making education and vocational training accessible to them. In the light of this, we are giving them a perspective for the future so that they won’t only be of help to themselves but to their families and community as a whole.
“You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves”. -Abraham Lincoln
Educated and skilled people play a pivotal role in their local economy and thereby help others in the context of self empowerment and financial independence. With your help we could jointly see that this becomes a reality - thus making the world a better, peaceful and equitable place to live.
Education should be our shield, our sword and our olive branch.
