Thinking of how to give back to the community that stood by you while you crawled through all the hurdles that life gave you is a brilliant initiative. Anthobex is a U.S-Cameroon based non-governmental organisation founded in 2005 by Anthony Besong Sr., an Oracle database administrator.

Since 2005 as a teen, Besong Anthony has always thought about how he could give back and help local communities who lack the basics in life, particularly in his home country Cameroon. This has always been his passion.

So many underprivileged kids in rural areas lost their purpose and calling due to poverty.  Anthobex is that organisation whose raison d’etre is to motivate and inspire young Africans to believe in themselves.

Anthobex is inculcating a culture that will build up kids to stay determined and not to rely on their family, government or friends to make their dreams come true. This is done by making them believe in themselves by providing them with the basic necessities of life.

Growing up in Africa, Besong understands the difficulties and hardships most African families face in their communities. To him, African youths are well talented but they frequently give up and lose their true calling in life due to lack of basic necessities like education.

How can a situation like this be remedied?  Education is paramount. “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”  ― Nelson Mandela

Anthobex will commence with the first born project this year 2017. This project connects first-borns in Africa with Sponsors in the U.S. The sponsor finances the education of the child, mentors and sees the kid through school.

When these kids are well to do in the future, they also think to help others grow by sponsoring as well. To keep the culture afloat, they also pick anyone at their discretion and sponsor.

Besong disclosed to plans about the forthcoming water, health and agricultural projects of Anthobex.

Truth be told, a community can not for long feed on itself; it can only flourish with the coming of others beyond their unknown and undiscovered brothers
