According to the UN, the adult literacy rate of Cameroon is 75 % (2015). This means that around a quarter of the population, with understanding, are not able to read and write a short, simple statement on their everyday life. This project will help to boost education by providing the badly-needed supporting structure and resources. Targeted activities will address help to optimize learning including meals, computer training, scholarships, school supplies, mosquito nets etc.

Many schools in Cameroon lack the essential support and infrastructure that are essential to provide a quality education. 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.


The project will reinforce and boost education by providing the badly-needed supporting structure and resources. This will include the provision of uniforms, school supplies, meals, school furniture, improved classrooms and other targeted support. 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 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.
