Taking into consideration the magnitude of the challenges we face, BleekerFoundation is hoping to synergise with existing organizations both in Cameroon and abroad to combat and eradicate teenage pregnancy and support teenage mothers. This will enable BleekerFoundation to gain more grounds and increase its efficiency.
