This project will sponsor scholarship for minority children and build a boarding school in North Cameroon, to provide a nice condition to promote education for 400 sedentary and nomadic Mbororo's children, in hope of restoring their rights and duties.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The Mbororo are nomads living on the margins of society; estimated at 1.8 million souls (Tchoumba, 2008) in Camerooon affected by a total illiteracy, lack of birth certificate, identity card. They are always scammed, in recent 5 years they are also victims of children kidnapping in pasture; leading some to settle. In 2010-2011, Copressa scored 34 children to school, but it is insignificant. This project will affect more than 1,000 Mbororos children of Gouna, in defense of basic rights.
How will this project solve this problem?
This project promotes access to school education for Mbororo children, in school age. Moreover, creation of a boarding school to host children of nomads in school period, literacy of parents and mothers in particular will reinforce the interest of children for schooling and its benefits.
Potential Long Term Impact
The project will educate about 1000 Mbororo's children, allowing them therefore to release frustrations, illiteracy and to advocate for the rights violated in their communities.
