The most important thing we focus on, is identifying and empowering those children who have had their childhood stolen from them. All of our programmes and projects directly or indirectly align with this objective.

Who We Are
What We Do
The Milat Foundation is a non-profit and non-governmental organization that promotes and supports durable solutions to the problems faced by deprived and underprivileged persons. TMF is especially committed to supporting deprived children and empower women and out-of-school girls living in poverty in marginalised and underserved communities in Cameroon, especially in the war-torn North and South West Regions. We help them unlock their full potentials and live their best life stories through life-changing programmes and projects.
Our activities are carried out using bold, strategic, and sustainable local empowerment projects and advocacy.
As an operating foundation, we work on issues directly or with strategic partners to change lives by – improving access to quality primary education for deprived children, offering vocational skills training opportunities to women and out-of-school girls living in poverty, setting up income-generating (livelihood) activities for women and girls upon completion of their vocational skills training, improving rural community health and assisting children with health issues, providing scholarships to train child advocates (ambassadors of child health & wellbeing and ambassadors of justice, child rights & protection), and advocating for the positive changes we want to see in societies.
Ongoing & Recent Projects
Educational Opportunities & Scholarships
We are making it possible for less privileged children to get quality primary education in the conflict affected Northwest and Southwest Regions of Cameroon through the provision of educational materials and our child sponsorship initiative. We’re also making it possible for some undergraduate students to stay in school through our subject-specific scholarships.
