Challenge

Since November 2016, schools in the Anglophone part of Cameroon (North West and South West Regions) have been shut down. This is due to an ongoing strike championed by teachers and lawyers and stemming from their dissatisfaction with the educational and legal systems in the Country which supposedly marginalizes Anglophones and limits their opportunities for growth. At the moment there is still a high level of uncertainty about school resumption.

Solution

The library project is expected to benefit at least 2200 pupils, students, teachers and others directly. At the moment many children are idling and not going to school. It is not clear when school will effectively resume in the region. So in the main time. Children can have access to reading material and also have some quiet moment to read. However, when schools eventually reopen, children will still continue to benefit from the library and in the long run, the reading culture will growth.

Long-Term Impact

As children learn to read, they will increasingly develop the love for reading without compulsion. This will enable them to develop reading skills which will help them in their academic and personal development. The reading culture in Kumbo is low, the creation of a functional library will help the children to be able to read for fun. Knowledge for children will continue to reach as many beneficiaries as possible. It is the belief that literacy makes responsible citizens.
