Back To School Initiative

The pur­pose of this ini­tia­tive is to demon­strate a spe­cif­ic need in the com­mu­ni­ty par­tic­u­lar­ly the youth of ages from 15 up to 26.  We want to focus more in the geo­graph­i­cal area such as Douala, Cameroon-Africa.  We want to address the urgency of a par­tic­u­lar­ly need­ed solu­tion that the youth are cry­ing out for.


Accord­ing to, “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.”


CamAid orga­ni­za­tion needs your sup­port, to help break the cycle of pover­ty, which prop­er edu­ca­tion is a start. We need your help.

School starts is approach­ing this com­ing fall of 2022, here is what we need for chil­dren and young adults, in Cameroon, Africa:

  • Annu­al school fees, no stu­dents are allowed to start school with­out pay­ing their fees.
  • School books, pens, pen­cils, cal­cu­la­tors, rulers, etc.
  • Clothes, what a way to start a new school year, with brand new clothes to help build con­fi­dence and inclu­sion, and
  • Col­lege tuition.
