Primary and secondary education is nominally free in government-run institutions in Cameroon, but the burden of providing adequate learning infrastructure and sufficient teaching staff falls predominantly on parents and communities especially rural and poor urban communities. As a result, many of these communities have inadequate school infrastructure and dilapidated structures, insufficient/unequipped classrooms, insufficient trained teachers, and lack of water and sanitation in schools. This leads to overcrowded classrooms, poor performance among pupils, high dropout rates, and a risky learning environment.
As we commemorate #worldsmileday today. Join us contribute towards an inclusive and equitable quality education that promotes lifelong learning opportunities for all, through rehabilitation, and equipping of dilapidated educational structures and the provision of scholarships to underprivileged children.
