Emergency Education Support
We are very excited to announce our collaboration with The Denis Miki Foundation to provide emergency education support to children living in some of the conflict-affected areas of the Anglophone Crisis in Cameroon. Two years into the Anglophone Crisis, hundreds have been recorded dead, over a thousand homes burned, dozens of schools attacked and over 250,000 people have fled their homes. The organization will be working with several local communities affected by the crisis to ensure that children, women and girls affected by the crisis are educated and economically empowered. Courses will be taught using Google Classrooms and online platforms in what are called small “Neighbourhood Education Clusters”. Children will be providedwith healthy and nutritious meals throughout the day to increase school attendance, retention and graduation rates, and also encourage parents to send their children to school rather than keeping them home. In addition, a “Safe Schools” campaign will be launched to educate the various parties in the armed conflict on the importance of why children should go to school even during periods of war.
