Education for 38 Children in Ngie - Cameroon

by Ngie Youth Empowerment, Inc.
Education for 38 Children in Ngie - Cameroon

Summary

Even with numerous government schools available, a decent number of children and youth in Ngie have never set foot in a classroom. This in part is due to the lack of financial and economic resources in a region that reeks of poverty and that is heavily dependent on small-scale agriculture for survival. This project will help take children away from the farms and streets; and place them into classrooms wherein they can learn about the world, self-sustenance, and other ways to develop their region

Challenge

Ngie is a rural area with a population of approximately 45,000 inhabitants whose main language is Ngishe or the Ngie dialect. Only a handful of locals in Ngie can effectively communicate in the English and/or French language which are the two official languages in the Republic of Cameroon. This deficiency, caused by the lack of proper education, gravely prohibits the economic and social advancement of children and youths in the region who barely survive by reliving the lives of their parents.

Solution

This project will bring awareness to the importance of education and the effect it has on economic and social advancement. This project will provide tuition and educational supplies to 38 children from impoverished families from all 19 villages in Ngie. The more children learn about communication, business, health, and nutrition; they have a better chance of winning the struggle against poverty, malnutrition and diseases. Education will create a better and more sustainable world for Ngie folks.

Long-Term Impact

The more elites a society has, the more chances it has of being able to address pertinent socio-economic issues. The lack of knowledge leads to the inability of many to understand the problems that plague their society. An educated community is able to communicate, comprehend, and address important issues. The future of Ngie is now in the hands of children and these children, without proper access to education, will be unable to bring forth the changes that the Ngie community so desperately need
