Summary

Tens of thousands of children in northern Cameroon, including many refugees from neighboring Nigeria, are out of school because of cross-border attacks by Boko Haram. Getting enough classrooms, teachers and various forms of assistance to the internally displaced children and refugees remains critical. This project will help boost education by providing the badly-needed educational supporting structure and resources.

Challenge

Due to violent conflicts in the Central African Republic (CAR) and increasing animosity between armed groups in northern Nigeria, Cameroon has become a country of refuge for over 280,000 refugees. They are in a state of hopelessness, due to the lack of resources. It is estimated by the UN that more than 58,500 children require treatment for acute malnutrition in 2018 and 32,000 children are unable to access school and 40 schools have been destroyed. Many are in despair and destitute. Hopeless.

Solution

This project will solve the problem by providing education and meals to displaced children and youths in Cameroon. It will provide the badly-needed supporting structure and resources that the children need to further their education. This will include school supplies, school furniture, improved classrooms and other targeted support. This will help create a sense of normalcy. Resources provided will enhance learning and boost attendance/retention.

Long-Term Impact

Hundreds of orphans and underprivileged children/youths will get a decent education. This will help transform their lives and providing opportunities for growth, and contribution to national development. The project will help ensure that the children would not be deprived of education based on their locality or family financial circumstances. Investing in child development is critical for human development.
