Friends and Donors,
Pauline Schroeder. a German took over from our Last Volunteer Sara E, Feldman from USA on our agriculture and environmental Activities for 8 weeks:
Pauline did research about agricultural and environmental topics, prepared handouts with information from school gardens, climate change, environmental impact and organic farming. So that the next volunteer can directly jump in the field working with farmers and school pupils.
She prepared lessons and taught one lesson a week in each of the three Government primary schools in Bonduma/Bokoko and Government Primary school in Tole for class 5.
In the first lessons, she taught how to make a vegetable garden“, then lessons about climate change, climate zones and the 4 seasons in Germa and the two seasons in Cameroon.
Organic farming and environmental impact end up the classes.
Thank you pauline and partners

Our project commenced when Sara .E. Feldman arrived Cameroon from the USA, 03 January 2013. Sara worked with us for 5 months, teaching agriculture and environmental sustainability in 2 primary schools in Bonduma, Bokoko villages and worked with 6 farmers groups in Tole village, great Soppo, Small soppo villages, Buea.
Doctor Ernest Molua and Acha from the department of agriculture, agricultural economics and businesses at the University of Buea were able to make time from their busy schedule to deliver training sessions with farmers groups on agricultural entrepreneurship and agronomy respectively.
We are able to effectively recruit more than 15 agriculture students from the university of Buea to continue the work of Sara. These students were recruited by Sara before her departure to USA June 03, 2013.
