According to Shumas-Cameroon.org, “Universal access to education is widely recognized as one of the most important steps in giving youth access to better economic and social opportunities and breaking individuals, families, and communities out of the cycle of poverty.
Unfortunately, in Cameroon, the minimal fees for primary and secondary school remain out of reach for many, and the burden of providing adequate learning infrastructure and sufficient teaching staff falls on parents and communities. As a result, education in Cameroon faces numerous challenges, such as:
- A lack of school supports and ongoing use of old structures
- Insufficient and unequipped classrooms
- Insufficient trained teachers
- Lack of water and poor sanitation in schools
- Children are unable to complete the academic year or advance due to lack of fees
These challenges result in a bad performance, high drop-out rates, and unsafe learning environments.”
