Challenge

Less than 50% of all Cameroonian children in the rural areas do not go to elementary school. On average it takes a student 10 years to complete elementary school; and then only 40% of those who go to high school graduate. Lack of formal education is one of the main reasons that nearly one-third of the country is illiterate and nearly 70% of Cameroonian are either unemployed or underemployed.

Solution

Funding will enable the Bitame Lucia School to hire and retain more highly-qualified teachers, make necessary infrastructure and classroom improvements, and subsidize the tuition for additional children from the local community.

Long-Term Impact

Having a primary and secondary education gives impoverished children a significantly better chance of getting a job, learning a trade or going to college and breaking the cycle of poverty into which they were born.
