The Serge Betsen Academy was awarded a WLCF Small Grant in October 2015 and January 2016, after Wasps Legend and French International Serge Betsen nominated his Academy.
The two grants will support part of the purchase and build of a new centre in Bangangte, which will host more than 120 children. The new centre will expand the number of classrooms and school levels, have a computer room, walk-in medical centre and hold workshops for recently graduated students.
The Serge Betsen Academy aims to raise funds for the relief of child poverty, sickness and distress in Cameroon by providing children’s centres education, healthcare and sports facilities. The organisation’s mission is to bring children together to see a future outside the poverty by providing access to simple, but critical, things like books, pre-school, health foods and places to play rugby and exercise.
