Summary

Too many youths in Cameroon do not have the supports needed to complete their education. Impoverished families do not have the necessary resources available to send their children to school. This project will help to boost education by providing the badly-needed supporting structure and resources. Develop Africa wants to optimize learning by providing students in need with meals, computer training, scholarships, school supplies, mosquito nets etc.

Challenge

According to the UN, the adult literacy rate in Cameroon is slightly above 70%, meaning almost 30% can't read or write. Children from disadvantaged families are not able to cover the costs of school supplies, books, shoes, uniforms, and related school costs. These families are also unable to provide transportation, adequate nutrition/food and even malaria nets for the kids. In rural areas, children face a lot of difficulties in obtaining a basic education and sometimes end up working on farms.

Solution

The project will reinforce and boost education by providing the badly-needed supporting structure and resources. This will include the provision of scholarships, tuition assistance, uniforms, school supplies, meals, school furniture, and improved classrooms. Resources provided will enhance learning and boost attendance/retention. This will ensure that the children are not deprived of a quality education based on their locality or family financial circumstances.

Long-Term Impact

Underprivileged children will receive a decent education. This will raise the literacy rate and help transform their lives and provide opportunities for growth and contribution to national development. By upgrading the quality of education offered in schools, we will be helping to transform communities and the entire nation. Investing in child development is critical for human development and we cannot talk about economic growth without talking about healthy and literate communities.
