Summary

In northern Cameroon, children are mostly affected by poverty, malnutrition and lack of schools within a radius of 200 km. To cope with this serious situation, in 2017 FOH supported the construction of a free primary school in northern Cameroon by setting up 3 classrooms that allowed 70 schoolchildren from 4 to 8 years old to be accommodated. In addition to the Cameroonian National Education Program, English and Arabic classes are taught to students from the preparatory class.

Challenge

In Cameroon, more than 37% of the population, that is 8 million people of a total of 22 million, live below the poverty line (living with less than $ 1.90 a day). Since 2013, Cameroon has faced an unprecedented humanitarian and security crisis, with nearly 350,000 refugees and asylum-seekers having fled conflict in the Central African Republic and Nigeria, as well as over 210,000 Cameroonians who have had to abandon their village, their land and their houses because of Boko Haram group.

Solution

To cope with this serious situation, in 2017 FOH supported the construction of a free primary school in northern Cameroon by setting up 3 classrooms that allowed 70 schoolchildren from 4 to 8 years old to be accommodated. In addition to the Cameroonian National Education Program, English and Arabic classes are taught to students from the preparatory class. The "Vina school" will be free and will allow about 200 children to go to primary school.

Long-Term Impact

The construction of a free primary school will provide hope for a better future for disadvantage children of this area and their families. By opening the doors of education, we also allow them to avoid falling into delinquency by growing up on several sports activities.
