An empowerment association to support vulnerable orphans and the destitute through social, economic and education programs baptized Charity and Education Fund has gone operational. The fund was launched in Njinikom, Boyo Division of the North West Region Saturday December 23, 2017. 
Speaking and presenting the mission statement of the Fund during the launch, the founder and promoter Jude Waindim who also doubles as Secretary General to the Bamenda City Council told the many who showed up for the launch “we exist to guarantee basic welfare of the less-privileged ones of our society, motivated by the fact that it is incumbent upon us to give back to society, sharing even the very little that God has blessed us with.” 
Through activities like the identification and creation of data base information on vulnerable orphans and the destitute, self-self-esteem advocacy, economic and educational empowerment of less privileged kids, the fund according to Jude Waindim will be promoting “a self-supporting, self-governing and self-propagating association that is committed to help mankind especially vulnerable orphans, the needy and the destitute.”
