Holman’s owners – Ken and Jenny Meister travelled to Cameroon in 2006 and 2009. They both saw the wonderful work that ICA was doing to bring the necessities of life to rural Cameroon and wish to help again.
“I strongly believe that education is something that everyone should have access to. Since last being in Cameroon I have wanted to help in some way and we are able to help right now by building a school as quick as we can,” said Ken Meister, founder and owner of Holman’s Ice Cream Parlour.
“Education is the key to overcoming poverty. Our hope is that a school can strengthen these children’s futures, who can then build healthy families, communities and government.”
The Meisters hope to count on the love and care of their community to reach their fundraising goal.
Holman’s will donate 5% of its sales towards the project and accept direct donations as well as corporate sponsors. The funds raised will contribute to:
• Build a 2-classroom school building
• Pay the salary of one PTA teacher
• Provide uniforms and textbooks for 200 students
Holman’s invites the community to contribute to the fundraiser to help Cameroonian children with poor access to education to attend school this year. Donations can be made on gofundme or in person at Holman’s Ice Cream Parlour.
