Has Aumazo made an impact in your life? Be it small or life-changingly significant, members from our community decided to share their experience of working with us.
I have been involved with Aumazo for three years now and my outlook on life, education and humanity is changed because of my experiences. I have organized many fundraisers, contributed some of my own money, and asked friends and family to do the same. However, no monetary value equates to how amazing it is to be able to start dialogues and change about a problem that money alone can not fix. The education system runs on teachers, students, and hard work and no amount of money can change that. Aumazo recognizes this and confronts the issues that go along with this reality head on: changing society's perspective of women in education, business, and recognizing their important contributions on a global basis." Aumazo is truly one of the greates non-profits I've had the pleasure of supporting.

Aumazo has had positive, profound impact on me because the whole objective of Aumazo is education. I realized that we have it good in our country--and it’s not that I didn’t know that before, but knowing first-hand who the founder was and having a teacher that cared deeply about it brought it more to life. I realized that donating our books to Aumazo could have a positive impact on the growth --not only through academic development but for the students’ livelihoods ahead. For this reason, Ebrahim and I decided to do a book drive for Aumazo as our Global Awareness Project at the end of our senior year.
Aumazo helped me become aware of the lack of educational opportunities across the world and it motivated me to actually help out. I learned the true value of education-- unlike anything else, education is always going to stay with you and it opens doors to many opportunities. For this reason, Michael and I decided to do a book drive for Aumazo as our Global Awareness Project at the end of our senior year.
Working with Aumazo made me realize the importance of education in a more tangible way and showed me that all of us really can make a difference if we put our minds and hands to it.
Aumazo made me think differently about education because I used to not really like being in school, but helping with Aumazo was fun and it showed me how important education is in people’s lives.
Aumazo is an eye-opening experience to many individuals including me. I have lived in Kenya and visited Cameroon and I have seen how the lack of education has impacted countries in Africa. Aumazo allowed to realize that it is easy for youth to make a change, including me as well.
It was a really valuable experience learning about Aumazo and the situation of girls and their education in rural Cameroon.
Working with Aumazo has given me an opportunity to help out others in a way that I might not have gotten to otherwise. Building a school for girls is really a unique opportunity and it drew me towards it.
Working with Aumazo was a great experience because it is helping many girls get their rights.
Aumazo is a wonderful organization that is providing a great thing for girls in Cameroon and which, by improving their lives, is providing a great service.
I had the opportunity to work with Jacqueline when I came on board as a student consultant in Fall 2014. I was the project manager of a team of MBA consultants which was tasked with creating an effective fundraising strategy and present recommendations on restructuring the existing board of directors.
Jacqueline's passion and drive are unbelievable. The fact that she faced the same problems that the girls in Cameroon still face means that she has an insider's view of what needs to be done. Right from our first meeting, it was clear that this project would be a great learning experience for us. Jacqueline leads from the front and has ambitious plans for Aumazo. With a great supporting cast which includes her daughter Marie-Anne and son Franck, i see a bright future ahead for Aumazo and recommend everyone to consider supporting the cause.

Aumazo was a pleasure to work with! With dedicated staff and an unsurpassable mission it was fantastic working with an organization that is so dedicated to helping others. Thank you Aumazo for the opportunity to work with you and for providing a learning experience for George Washington University students.

I am currently a volunteer for Aumazo, lending a hand to help with fundraising strategies and strategic planning. Aumazo has come a long way from a mere idea to a full blown, not for profit organization. Its founder is an amazing enthusiast and determined woman who will undoubtedly make a boarding school for rural girls in Bankondji an imminent reality. I think combining the funds raised for this purpose with the proceeds of a striving brick business in her hometown was a terrific idea. I truly have high hopes and only praise for Team Aumazo.
My visit to Cameroon 2 years ago with the Mount St. Mary's team of faculty and students began my love for Africa....specifically the people of Bankondji. Education is a powerful tool for change; and educating girls extends that positive change to their future families. This project is so worthwhile to support as it will currently build strong women and provide educated citizens in the future. During my visit one of the Sisters at the Daughters of Charity said that “Africa gets into your skin.” I feel that I came home with a piece of Africa in my heart. The land is beautiful. The people are beautiful. My memories are beautiful. I am proud to teach my students at the University about this wonderful project and how to support it with our monies and prayers.
The first time I heard about Aumazo was through a close friend of mine. I am from one of the counties with which Cameroon share its frontier (Gabon) so when I heard about Aumazo and the goals that they wanted to reach I was more than exited to be able to volunteer. In addition it’s not every day that you come across a non-profit organization that has the ambition to bring education to Africa for this reason I strongly believe that they do need more recognition and help from anyone for the hard work that they’re doing.
I heard about Aumazo through a dear friend who insisted that I checkout this cause and support. As a cameroonian girl myself, This is truly a noble cause and I am glad that Jacqueline, the Founder, is giving back to our community. She is a great role model and I encourage others to follow in her footsteps!
I had a great experience working with Aumazo Inc. Mrs Audige did a phenomenal job at getting a team together to work in partnership with the University of Maryland and spending hours taking hundreds of their chairs, chalk boards and several other school materials that were going to be thrown away and that instead we took to put in a container and ship to Cameroon to help build better schools. It was an eye-opening experience and the purpose was real. Great organization, great people. I would recommend them to anyone looking to make an immediate difference in the lives of people who need it.
During my experience with Aumazo, I learned about the Cameroonian economy and educational system. Aumazo is ensuring that girls in Cameroon have access to education and they have a strong culture built on the empowering women and improving the country of Cameroon.
