Breaking Ground Charity Profile
"Bringing people together to facilitate small-scale, community-initiated projects in Cameroon."
Breaking Ground is powered by community, inspired by grassroots initiative, and committed to sustainability.
Through our personal networks of friends, families, and acquaintances, we raise money to enable Cameroonians to realize small-scale, community-initiated projects. In doing so, we are committed to facilitating relationships of mutual respect and understanding between the communities with whom we work and the contributors who make our projects possible.
Breaking Ground is committed to a personal and transparent approach to fundraising and project implementation. We believe that it is essential that our contributors both see and participate in the concrete changes they make possible. Through our website, our contributors may access detailed records of our budgets and expenses, track the progress of our projects with regularly updated photographs and reports, and communicate their feedback and questions directly to our Ground Coordinators, officers, and Cameroonian counterparts.
Breaking Ground Volunteer Information
GCs commit a minimum of one year to Breaking Ground. This consists of several months of fundraising prior to their departure for Cameroon, and at least eight months of service in Cameroon during which they participate in an orientation program, live with Cameroonian home-stay families, engage in their specified volunteer work, and facilitate small-scale grassroots community projects. GCs also assist with training and education programs upon their return to the US.
