Educate 50 Kids Affected by Armed Conflict

Summary

Most public primary schools in the rural communities of the conflict plagued English regions of Cameroon have been shut down leaving the education of children with limited parental care especially orphans in the hands of privately-owned schools. The requirement to pay tuition in these schools inhibits thousands of children from attaining basic primary education. This project ensures that these continue to acquire primary education by providing tuition, vital learning material and basic hygiene

Challenge

Viable rural parents have displaced their children to secured locations in the cities for education. Those of very poor parents, orphans and child headed households stay back in the villages, deprived of education by tuition and essential school requirements. These children living in communities of active conflict witness violence and traumatic scenes on a daily basis. Without access to education, they face a challenge of deteriorating mental health and integrating armed groups as children.

Solution

The project aims to provide scholarships to children deprived of education by armed conflict. It will contributes to SDG 4, 5 and 8 by ensuring the right of children to basic primary education is respected through academic scholarships and improved care environment

Long-Term Impact

Education empowers children with the tools to be productive citizens contributing to break the vicious cycle of poverty in line with SDG 4, 5 and 8. By ensuring that the education of poor children doesn't stop due to conflict, the project is a credible alternative to the temptation of integrating armed gangs while addressing the drivers of conflict induced child sex and labour trafficking. The acquisition of important soft skills promotes peaceful coexistence, generosity and community service
