What We Do

We build schools and provide quality education for adolescents in under-resourced areas of Northern Cameroon, enabling them to access higher education, technical skills, and jobs.

 

St. Andrew's School, Ngong Cameroon serves over 400 students annually.

Proper education isn't accessible to all children of Cameroon. The literacy rate of around 70% is due to lack of funding, infrastructure and teachers.

At an estimated population count of over 26 million people, 30% of Cameroon's society lives below the poverty line.
