seek out the Cameroonian neediest children and orphans and provide them with the necessities; education, training, and inspiration

Our Mission

To offer a chance of life, a new start to orphans and underprivileged children by offering them education and trainings and providing them necessary health care.


Who we are

Buma Foundation mission is to corporate and collaborate with local authorities and members of the community to offer a chance of life and a new start to orphans and other under privileged children. We aim at educating and providing necessary tools of education.

Who we are

What we do

What we do

Creating employment opportunities through different vocational skills.

We organize vocational trainings for orphans and the underprivileged. Culturally, many of these girls are likely to be married at a rather young age. These vocational skills like computer, sewing, cutting &tailoring, beauty treatments and basic IT skills allow these girls to pursue financial independence and help in their skill development.


The aim of THE FOUNDATION is to promote the development of orphans in achieving their full intellectual and social potential, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of the society.


THE FOUNDATION is established for the purposes of acting in the overall interests of the Cameroonian Society with respect:
  1. To encourage orphan’s education through scholarships, donations of books, etc.
  2. To encourage skills training for orphans and the needy.
  3. Fight against poverty through agriculture.
  4. To promote a self-supporting, self-government and self-propagating organization that is committed to help mankind especially vulnerable, orphans, needy and the old.


THE FOUNDATION shall launch and carry out its activities in accordance to its objectives in the following departments as an orphans and the needy empowerment association.
  1. Orphans and the needy rights advocacy.
  2. Economic empowerment for orphans and the needy.
  3. Social empowerment for orphans and the needy.
  4. Communication and public relation
  5. Data base and information
  6. Web content development

Biochar & climate change

Biochar & climate change

Unlike conventional forms of organic matter (such as garden compost) biochar takes a long time to decompose (centuries or even millennia) and thus has great potential to store carbon in the soil. There are likely to be additional benefits to improving the structure (aeration) of poorly drained, dense soils that can otherwise emit significant quantities […]

Is biochar application proven to be always beneficial in the garden?

Is biochar application proven to be always beneficial in the garden?

Not all biochars are created equal.

Effectiveness as a soil improver

The extent to which biochar can contribute to aeration depends on porosity and particle size. Larger particles (1mm or larger) generally being better for aeration than smaller ‘dusty’ materials. The impact of any biochar on the soil-plant system will also be affected by:

How often should I apply biochar?

Soil type


Using nutrient-enriched and biologically-enriched biochar (and composts containing enriched biochar

Using nutrient-enriched and biologically-enriched biochar (and composts containing enriched biochar

‘Nutrient-enriched’ or ‘biologically-enriched’ biochars have added nutrients (organic or otherwise) or additional microbes. These products excel in preventing temporary deficits in nitrogen, which are occasionally reported for ‘non-enriched’ or ‘straight’ biochars (usually when soil N is already low). Additional mycorrhizal fungi also improve plant access to soil phosphorus. Note: the climate benefits of enriched products […]

Aspects to consider if using biochar

Using ‘straight’ biochar (and composts containing biochar ‘Straight’ biochars (non-enriched) are most suited for aeration (commonly called “drainage”) of soils which are at risk of periodic flooding or soils which are too dense or anaerobic (e.g. poorly structured/compacted clays). It can be applied at any time of the year, dug into the soil surface, or mixed with soil ‘backfill’ […]

Biochar as a soil additive

Biochar as a soil additive

The application of biochar to soil is known to have various effects; Positive effects reported include improving plant health through neutralising acidity, providing improved water and nutrient retention (especially in sandy soils) and improved drainage and aeration. Each fragment can also provide a habitat for beneficial soil microbes.  Negative effects are primarily due to the use of biochars […]
