Challenge

Aumazo's pilot peer to peer tutoring project is designed to bring 7th and 8th grade girls living in rural areas up to grade standard in reading comprehension and math so that they can pass the national exams necessary to enroll in any high school in Cameroon. Thirty girls are currently enrolled in the tutoring program. Aumazo also provides support to the girls have passed the exam to attend a nearby day high school until Aumazo's girls boarding school opens

Solution

High schools in rural Cameroon have a lower percentage of girls enrolled than boys, due to many factors. Few girls meet reading comprehension and math standards needed to get in. Aumazo uses collaborative peer to peer methods to bring the girls up to grade standard. Tutors provide expertise, experience, and encouragement in their work with the girls. They help the students to solve problems and obtain answers through questioning, thus improving the girls' skills and keeping them focused.

Long-Term Impact

The peer-to-peer tutoring project will increase the pool of applicants who have passed the national exam to the proposed Aumazo boarding high school at Bankondji, Cameroon. The tutoring program should be easily replicable and can be extended to neighboring communities. It builds the girls' skills necessary for success in the school's STEM program. The girls will gain knowledge to earn their livelihoods as well as contribute to family and community well-being.
