In the Fall of 2016, the UNT student chapter of FWOP (untfwop.org) — under the leadership of Heliana Onomo — raised funds on campus for the Orphanage in Yaounde. They had four main objectives that reflect FWOP’s 4 Es: Enterprise, Environment, Education, and Empowerment. These provide a framework for establishing projects and partnership around the world.

The FACT Foundation was established in the orphanage in 1987 under the leadership of Mrs. Ngo Mawege Celine Marthe. The UNTFWOP student team, with a focus on education, promoted three basic strategies: first, lessons on empowering teachers and students with worksheets on “All About Me” and “Super Girl” coloring pages, which they designed. Second, lessons on business practices (enterprise) and actual students created items for sale, e.g., bracelets, wood tables. Third, they developed environment-oriented lessons, which have major targets — the individual and the community. They focused lessons on hygiene, disease prevention, and physical exercise as well as recycling and trash reduction.

The non-profit organization — Comeover 2 — implemented the program at the orphanage.
