GIVING BACK: THE MISSY BK FOUNDATION LAUNCHES IN CAMEROON WITH THE GIFT OF EDUCATION TO FIVE ORPHANS

       THE AWARD WINNING AFRO POP SINGER
         MISSY BK GIVES THE GIFT OF EDUCATION TO FIVE ORPHANS IN CAMEROON.


The Missy BK Foundation, launched last September 8th, is a non-profit organization which seeks to inspire and empower underprivileged children, orphans and families living in the Republic of Cameroon in Central Africa.





The Founder, Constance Bih Kimal, aka Missy BK, is a young, vibrant, multi-talented artist whose hit single “My Baby” made waves across Africa, Canada, America and Europe, airing on MTV base , RTI 2, Canal 2, STV, Boom TV,  DBSB TV, Radio stations and news papers. Included in her success story also is her 1st  single “Set Me Free” which earned her Best Female Artist of the Year in Canada at the HNSS Excellence award. She says she has always dreamed of starting a non-profit organization to help the less privileged back in her home Cameroon and she gained the confidence to do so after she became a successful performing artist.

With two hit singles under her belt and a passion for helping the less fortunate, the Afro pop artist Missy BK used money gained from her first Canadian tour to kick-start her foundation in early 2014, by giving the gift of education to five orphans selected from the Helping Hands Children’s Home Orphanage, who needed financial assistance to further their education.These students have proven that they have what it takes to reach their full potential and become key players in creating a peaceful and successful Africa. The Missy BK foundation also donated a laptop to ACCESSLE childcare learning centre situated in Yaoundé the capital of Cameroon. This laptop facilitated   the pupils and students in this institution with access to computer studies and online learning.

The Missy BK  Foundation partners with local community leaders, orphanages and educators in Cameroon to identify girls and boys who are gifted, eager to learn and financially challenged and  work to achieve sustainable impact in these communities by finding and funding hard-working students from rural areas. It’s clear to see that the root to poor education in Cameroon comes from the high rate of poverty ravaging the country. Parents especially the less privileged ones are unable to afford to pay tuition, buy text books and other school needs for their children due to the high rate of unemployment in the country. The outbreak of HIV and Aids also left many children orphans at a very young age.  This foundation provides educational support to orphans that include merit-based scholarships, annual tuition fees, uniforms, personal supplies, and food and learning materials. This basic support allows motivated students to immediately access higher quality education and set them on the track for success.


Out of her love of volunteerism, the Missy BK foundation has since continued to blossom with a lot of activities helping to uplift the Cameroonian society. After talking to Missy BK, this is what she had to say concerning her voluntary act of giving back to the society. “I give not because I have much but because I know exactly how it feels like to have nothing.”



Missy BK’s mother is an important inspiration for her philanthropy. “My mother taught me, I don’t have to wait until I have millions to start helping people, she told me it’s not how much I give but it’s the love that I put into what I give that matters and a little something given to someone could make a big difference in their lives.” Says Bk.
The foundation serves Cameroonians through three major initiatives: The Education and Sponsorship program, Supplies for School program and the Make-A-Wish program: For a child living with a life-threatening medical condition, a wish brings hope, strength and joy. The entire wish process – from the anticipation, to the wish itself, and the memories that it creates – provides a welcomed diversion for children undergoing difficult medical treatments. A wish can also be a positive experience for families in challenging times.
Missy BK is inspiring and her outlook to life is different, her humble and humanitarian acts and passion is an inspiration for many youths to follow. Which also abides with this saying“Love is not patronizing and charity isn't about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same -- with charity you give love, so don't just give money but reach out your hand instead.”- Mother Teresa
Never underestimate the difference YOU can make in the lives of others. Step forward, join the Missy BK foundation, reach out and help.
