Thank you for supporting our 2012 charity campaign!

A big thank you to everyone who upgraded to a Premium Membership in December 2012 to support our charity campaign!

It was a great success – with your help, we sponsored thousands of weeks of education for children in Cameroon, Africa. The money will be used to buy furniture, textbooks and other teaching materials for children.

Throughout the month of December 2012, busuu.com sponsored school for children in Cameroon, Africa for every Premium Membership sold.

All donations went to  CAPECthe Cameroon Association for the Protection and Education of the Child. The organisation will use the funds to give children access to school.

Why have we chosen CAPEC? Our name comes from Busuu, which is an endangered language spoken by fewer than eight people in Cameroon. That’s why we decided to help a charity that supports children in the region. CAPEC is one of Cameroon’s leading child welfare organisations and we have been supporting it since 2009. CAPEC’s aim is to help children by giving them opportunities for a better life.

 

Thank you from all of us at busuu.com!
