PROJECTS & GIVING BACK
LESA-USA Inc. is an alumnus association and a beautiful sisterhood of Past Students of Our Lady of Lourdes Secondary School, Mankon, Cameroon. This association's main focus remains the Promotion of the Girl Child - A United Nations Millennial Goal.
We have opted to preserve, enhance and expand this legacy of
PROMOTING THE GIRL CHILD BY NOT LEAVING OUR FOOTPRINTS ON THE GIRL CHILD ONLY AT OUR ALMA MATER, OUR LADY OF LOURDES SECONDARY SCHOOL, MANKON, BUT EVERYWHERE POSSIBLE WITHIN THE COMMUNITY OF CAMEROON AND AT LARGE.
So, every year we continue to choose projects that enhance the health, social, economic, and educational well-being of the local, national and international communities. Promoting the Girl Child remains the heart of LESA-USA. However, with each year, we are ecstatic to share that the size and scope of projects we are blessed to provide our local and international communities with have grown and significantly improve the quality of life for all.
