The Milat Foundation - Young women with notebooks


The Milat Foundation has been founded with the guiding principle that all children no matter where they are born or come from, have some natural rights such as the rights to education, rights to health, rights to nutritive diet, rights to water, rights to care, and all other rights associated to human.

They also deserve an equal opportunity to achieve. But many children who come from disadvantaged backgrounds suffer greater challenges – no access to basic education to match their peers, unable to feed, no access to health care, making it difficult for them to be able to build a better future.
Most of these children are orphans, or children simply born into extreme poverty. With no means to break out of this natural poverty circle, these children are unable to harness their potential.

The children who have access to these rights grow as independent individuals who can break through the cycle of poverty, be empowered to take their future into their own hands, and play an active part in shaping it.

Inspired by both a sense of giving and a life-changing event, the Milat Foundation has been established by Bertin Milat owing to his longtime commitment to philanthropy, and in an effort to accept and appreciate God’s ruling in the life of a fine young man who for no fault of his own had his childhood and the opportunities which naturally comes with it stolen from him. “… And the son of a dad and father capable of proving, became a deprived child…”

The Milat Foundation will take upon itself a commitment to protect and advance the rights and opportunities of deprived children who in one way or another, due to no fault of their own have had their childhood stolen from them. Here at Milat Foundation, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for deprived children and their families living in abject poverty. Our decision-making process is informed by comprehensive empirical studies and high-quality data evaluation.

We strive to build productive relationships with the communities we serve and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits.

Foundation’s Focus


Ensuring a Safe and comfortable learning place for children through educ-institutional support initiatives. Expanding access to early childhood education through child sponsorship.


Advocating for child rights, justice, and child protection through the award of Undergraduate Law Scholarships.
Support orphanages with food, clothing, and other supplies.


Advocating for and improving the health and well-being of children through the award of Undergraduate Nursing Scholarships.

Besides direct involvement through life-changing projects/programs, we do engage in advocacy with the goal of protecting the rights of and improving the quality of life for underprivileged children. This is the reason why we instituted the Milat Foundation Fellowship named the “Darrell Milat Scholarship for Justice & Child Protection”, awarding scholarships to students pursuing a university degree in law with an interest in working for upholding justice in courtrooms and the entire justice department in Cameroon, especially but not limited to cases for which children are victims.

The Milat Forum is also another bold advocacy initiative. It is an annual high-level discussion forum tackling issues of critical importance to the well-being of deprived or least privileged children. Every year it is convened around one specific issue of critical importance to children’s well-being that requires in-depth analysis and solutions.

Focus on Children!

Our Children! Our Future

The Milat Foundation was established in January 2018 as a non-profit focusing on children – the bright young minds of tomorrow, yet the most vulnerable.
All the work we do focuses on children, their welfare, and a promising future. Even as we strive to empower women and girls, we do so knowing fully well that by helping them, they will thus be able to give their children a much better life, educate them so that they are able to become better members of their society and agents of positive change.


Community Based

Our work is community-based. Our staff and volunteers reside with the communities we serve, live with them, listen to them and work with them to improve their lives. The Director and an Advisory Board exercise overall governance, managing risks and ensuring compliance with statutory requirements.

Partnering for Change

For us at TMF, partnership is very precious and must be acquired, built, and well maintained. We partner with local communities, civil society, corporations, academia, faith-based organizations, global partners, advocacy groups, decision-makers, and philanthropists to give deprived children a chance to build a better future.
