A scholarship is an award of financial aid for a student to further their education. Scholarships are awarded based upon various criteria, which usually reflect the values and purposes of the donor or founder of the award. To grant partial and full scholarships to needy young girls and boys from primary to university levels through the foundation support fund. Through this aspect, we encourage rural youth to achieve quality literacy, numeracy, and general life skills--and to take action in their communities through participation in local policy formulation, decision making, and advocacy. Our scholarships go a long way to carter for the health of the vulnerable children as well. Many parish because the family are unable to purchase common medications for diseases. Our welfare section takes care of feeding to the desperate that cannot even provide two meals a day, clothing for school books and pen, pencils backs and school shoes.

Community Development Approach
The Community Development Approach (CDA) is a model to which MCAF has been dedicated since 2016. It is the backbone to which we approach the running of all MCAF’s programs. It ensures that we operate sustainable programs that not only meet individuals’ immediate needs, but also change the landscape of the community, leaving permanent transformation. The four stages of intervention in this CDA model are; Food Production, Capacity building for community, Education, Water, Sanitation and Health.
Through these four stages MCAF is able to; identify the most urgent needs within a Community, and meet them immediately, Create projects while building capacity of local leaders and stakeholders to manage Programs. Assist with the transition of these programs, Provide oversight and support.
This model is a sustainable business approach to development, treating the beneficiary Community not just as the recipient of aid, but as a partner in developing change.
While education is a continues project that on the move, we have gigantic projects to better the lives of the individuals, groups and families.
We have so far being carrying out capacity building in 30 villages in the Fako division. In the propagation of plantain suckers, cassava cuttings. To create added value chain in the process by providing machines for processing of mostly Cassava. Livestock rearing is also not left out as the nutritional part of our diet consumed helps in the body building and growth of our children. So construction of modern pig fences is a tool taken into consideration in the project process. By the end of 2020, we wish that our goals have being met and these communities are able to provide for themselves and neighbors. By this time the population whose livelihood that depended on the mountain for survival will be strong and viable to feed its population.
The population of this communities relied on hunting for survival but it has being taken away from them. Poverty has become the other of the day. Jobless youths have now engage on criminal activities to make ends meet. Our plan as well is to create employment by turning their activities to profitable economic booms, hence employment to the youths. The out puts of our projects will also help in given relief in the refuges in the north displaced by the Boko Haram terrorist groups. We also look at the construction and maintenance of some schools which our children attend.
In 2016, so many people and communities benefited from the foundations projects mostly in agriculture and livestock and education. It was an impressive year and we could term the year a success. Piglets where handed to many on our community development approach program. A group of women know as the Ewongo women group also appreciates our donations for cassava production. Many who engage in the production of tomatoes can attest ad well on our hand in their farms. Much is yet to be down.
