Lesline’s Orphanage Talent Hunt: Nurturing Dreams

In a world where so many children are forced to endure unimaginable hardships, it can seem like escaping poverty and devastation is an impossible dream. But one woman, Lesline, refused to accept this bleak reality. With a passion for changing lives, she knew that simply providing basic needs and counseling was not enough. She wanted to offer something more, something long-term that could truly change the trajectory of these children’s lives.

And so, she founded the “Orphanage Talent Hunt,” a groundbreaking initiative aimed at identifying and nurturing the talents of children living in orphanages. The event took place on January 28th, 2023, at the Women Empowerment Center in Limbe, bringing together over 17 orphanages from the southwest region of Cameroon.

The talent hunt featured a boot camp on empowerment, talent acquisition and development, and self-branding. And with a cash prize of 100,000FCFA up for grabs, the competition was fierce. Five talented individuals emerged as winners, each receiving a share of the prize money and extra deals from CEOs present at the event. Prizes were distributed as follows
1st price –  50,000FCFA
2nd price –  40,000FCFA
3rd price –  30,000FCFA
4th price –  20,000FCFA
5th price-   10,000FCFA

But it wasn’t just about the prizes. Lesline and her team wanted to create a truly transformative experience for these children. And so, they ended the day with a shared meal from Lesline’s restaurant, giving the orphans a chance to connect and build relationships with one another.

As they look forward to solving SDG2 and SDG17, Lesline and her team know that this is just the beginning. The Orphanage Talent Song will be released soon, showcasing the incredible talents of these young people and inspiring others to follow in their footsteps. With Lesline leading the way, anything is possible.
