Encouraging students, including girls, to do sciences by providing a science lab in a rural high school. Science education would enable them to become doctors, teachers, and other professionals.
This high school in Cameroon cannot offer advanced science classes because there is no lab. All science students from the area must seek admission in a larger town, where living is expensive (rent, water, electricity, cooking stove, food, etc.). With a lab, hundreds of students would benefit directly each year. The entire community would benefit by more students staying in the village renting housing, purchasing food and other items.
We will work with local groups, including the Parent Teacher Association to build classrooms and administrative offices. Our partners in Cameroon would execute the plan and would construct the lab on the campus of Tatum High School.
The project would result in the first science lab in a high school in the area.
