In 2020, the total population of Cameroon was estimated to approximately 26.55 million inhabitants. The small town of Ngong has a population of about 90,000 people. Conflict and tensions have placed enormous stress on the country's education system where it is not uncommon to see classroom sizes of more than 200 students.
As a result of these challenges, more than half of rural Cameroonians live below the poverty line. The high rate of poverty does not allow many parents to send their kids to existing schools.
