Madeleine Home Care and Training Center Akum, a center established in September 2009 by the Emmanuel Sisters, train and cater for children and girls
with special needs. The Madeleine Care and training center has been operating for close to 5 years and presently looks after 26 girls, children or young adults.
A program of enlargement is in construction and is supported by the Swiss association of the "Friends of the Emmanuel Sisterhood".
Sister Mary-Ann is presently in charge. Three sisters provides to these youngsters a spiritual and human formation to make sure they are built professionaly and academically.
Life in the Center is simple and family-like with a rhythm generated by the school agenda and 4 daily prayers by the sisters.
The girls participate in the house chores by helping in cleaning, meal preparation and join in some of the prayers.
A training related to the manufacture of jewels and bags made of traditional cloth is included.
Every morning a biblical exchange is organized before the departure to school. Within the time available, as often as possible, links with the family are maintained.
To financially support locally the daily requirements of this program, a traditional bakery has been built. The bread is sold to people of the village and this gives a job to boys under the responsibility of a sister.
Also the sisters, with some outside help, have started to grow vegetables and fruits in the fertile ground around the house, thus providing food.
The activities of this center have already collected a significant respect within the village and in Bamenda. Further, a sister helps at the parish primary school, which is so appreciated and creates a true presence within the life of the parish.. > (click here)
