THE AWARD WINNING AFRO POP SINGER
MISSY BK GIVES THE GIFT OF EDUCATION TO FIVE ORPHANS IN CAMEROON.
Missy BK Foundation, launched last September 8th, is a non-profit
organization which seeks to inspire and empower underprivileged children,
orphans and families living in the Republic of Cameroon in Central Africa.
Founder, Constance Bih Kimal, aka Missy BK, is a
young, vibrant, multi-talented artist whose hit single “My Baby” made waves
across Africa, Canada, America and Europe, airing on MTV base , RTI 2, Canal 2,
STV, Boom TV, DBSB TV, Radio stations and news papers. Included in her
success story also is her 1st single “Set Me Free” which
earned her Best Female Artist of the Year in Canada at the HNSS Excellence
award. She says she has always dreamed of starting a non-profit organization to
help the less privileged back in her home Cameroon and she gained the confidence
to do so after she became a successful performing artist.
two hit singles under her belt and a passion for helping the less fortunate,
the Afro pop artist Missy BK used money gained from her first Canadian tour to
kick-start her foundation in early 2014, by giving the gift of education to
five orphans selected from the Helping Hands Children’s Home Orphanage,
who needed financial assistance to further their education.These students have
proven that they have what it takes to reach their full potential and become
key players in creating a peaceful and successful Africa. The Missy BK
foundation also donated a laptop to ACCESSLE childcare learning centre situated
in Yaoundé the capital of Cameroon. This laptop facilitated the
pupils and students in this institution with access to computer studies and
partners with local community leaders, orphanages and educators in Cameroon to
identify girls and boys who are gifted, eager to
learn and financially challenged and work to achieve sustainable impact
in these communities by finding and funding hard-working students from
rural areas. It’s clear to see that the root to poor education in
Cameroon comes from the high rate of poverty ravaging the country. Parents especially
the less privileged ones are unable to afford to pay tuition, buy text books
and other school needs for their children due to the high rate of unemployment
in the country. The outbreak of HIV and Aids also left many children orphans at
a very young age. This foundation provides educational support to orphans that
include merit-based scholarships, annual tuition fees, uniforms, personal
supplies, and food and learning materials. This basic support allows motivated
students to immediately access higher quality education and set them on the
track for success.
her love of volunteerism, the Missy BK foundation has since continued to
blossom with a lot of activities helping to uplift the Cameroonian society.
After talking to Missy BK, this is what she had to say concerning her voluntary
act of giving back to the society. “I give not because I have much but because
I know exactly how it feels like to have nothing.”
important inspiration for her philanthropy. “My mother taught me, I don’t have
to wait until I have millions to start helping people, she told me it’s not how
much I give but it’s the love that I put into what I give that matters and a
little something given to someone could make a big difference in their lives.”

Sponsorship program, Supplies for School program and the Make-A-Wish program: For a child
living with a life-threatening medical condition, a wish brings hope, strength
and joy. The entire wish process – from the anticipation, to the wish itself,
and the memories that it creates – provides a welcomed diversion for children
undergoing difficult medical treatments. A wish can also be a positive
experience for families in challenging times.
her outlook to life is different, her humble and humanitarian acts and passion
is an inspiration for many youths to follow. Which also abides with this saying“Love
is not patronizing and charity isn’t about pity, it is about love. Charity and
love are the same — with charity you give love, so don’t just give money but
reach out your hand instead.”- Mother Teresa
difference YOU can make in the lives of others. Step forward, join the Missy BK
