Careness: empowering orphans and underprivileged children through funny chemistry workshops

Who we are

With its name coming from a cross between caring and kindness with a dash of consideration, Careness was created with a clear purpose: lending a hand to those who need it the most.

Located in Yaounde – Cameroon, Careness is an initiative that aims to make the world a better place by giving access to quality education to orphans and underprivileged children.

Relying on donations and kindness, we organize practical, fun, and 100 % free chemistry workshops in orphanages since 2019. What are you waiting for to join us?


What makes our heart beat

« Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world »

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela

School enrollment rates are pretty good in Cameroon: 94% in primary and 47% in high school (NIS, 2019). Unfortunately, quality gap in education had never been so important. Cameroonian school system is very theoretical especially in the field of Chemistry. 

Private initiatives to promote STEM exist but they are mainly oriented towards ICTs and available only for children from wealthy families, who have enough money to pay the extra tuition fees.

Careness fight to put an end to this injustice. How exactly? Check this explanatory video to know everything.

Did you know that more than 50% of the best jobs are related to science? Estimated to 1,291,474 in Cameroon, orphans and underprivileged children also deserve access to quality education in order to improve their grades, self-confidence an have better job opportunities.

That’s why Careness is dedicated to close the STEM gap that currently exists between rich kids and poor children.

Since its creation, Careness has not spared its efforts. In 2019, 80 children have been introduced to Chemistry through funny and interactives experiments. For 2020, we trained 102 orphans thanks to this funding system.

Just below, you will find the detailed reports of the activities we conducted. The lava lamp, the pH analysis, the naked egg experiment, … See what wonders the children have been able to make during all those years.
