Our Orphanage
Since 2004

Taking care of orphans and underprivileged children

Our Location

The Grace of God Philanthropic Foundation Orphanage is located in the city of Buea in the Southwestregion of Cameroon.

Our History

“I do really like children and taking care of them is a vision from God. I enjoy doing so and it is what God wants me to do.”

That is why Mama Mary Sume Ebane started in 2004 the nonprofit organization with three children in a very small house. 

With the grace of God and getting assistance from donors and well wishers, including support from social groups and churches, they were able to acquire a piece of land, where, with further help of many other generous donors, they also could build now this beautiful building and home for actually 28 children in the age of 1 to 17 years. 

“We have been able to be where we are today thanks to the small, small financial and material assistance we get from the public.” – Mama Ebane
