VICTIMS OF A WAR THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT

struggling to survive: from the streets to the classrooms (1/1)

Crisis in Cameroon for almost 4 years now has   kept children wondering from one region to another so much so that the notion of education is almost  wiped off from both the children and the parents as they are all struggling to survive.

 

Many families are uprooted from the life they knew, from the tranquility of their communities and their present is bleak, and their future is uncertain. The crisis in Cameroon has coursed many Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) into other towns where it is peaceful. They are escaping from the violence created by the ongoing   conflict.

Most of these families have lost all that they have, some of them had their parents, brothers and sisters killed,

Due to these frustrations, there is an increasing amount of families who are losing their children to the street life of drugs, prostitution, pick-pocketing and burglary, rape, begging and all other sorts of societal nuisance.

I want to take off these children from the streets to the classrooms. Even if is one child. I have launched a campaign seeking for VOLUNTARY TEACHERS who can join me offer FREE classes to the IDPs starting this 2019/2020 academy year with the examination classes. (Form 5 and upper sixth students). I am   making process with the campaigns as 4 others persons have accepted to join me in this struggle.

 

My goal is not only to educate the children but to equally empower them to believe in themselves and gather the broken pieces and make it beautiful. We don’t want them dashing their dreams on rocks. I want to encourage them to dream again, to hold to their visions because it is still possible to get there.

The challenge at moment is purchasing test books for both students and teachers

And national exams registration coming up next year

Hello Dear Prisca,

How are you doing, dear? What a great, and noble, initiative... love it! I'm glad to hear, too, that you have found World Pulse as a valuable tool to help you boldly move in the direction of your purpose, dear. That's great to hear!

Do you have a fundraiser link to share? Are you collaborating with any WP sisters, such as Sally, who is also passionate about educating children in Cameroon in the crisis regions? If not, this is her profile, in case you would like to private message her, or I can also introduce you as well, if you like. Just me know.

Hi dear,
We are also very grateful for having you here. It's sad to here the war has displaced a lot of children away from you. It's always so with wars, that is why is not good for wars. In fact this will also have a long term effect on them as well. Thanks for sharing and I hope it gets better soon for all of you.
