Benches made out of tree limbs. Scraps of metal tied together for a roof. Not enough desks, if any. Lack of walls to provide protection from the weather. One or two classrooms for all students of all ages served by the school. No chalkboards. No bathrooms. No solid school structure of any kind. And yet students show up every day ready to learn, ready for an education.
This is a typical school in Cameroon.
“You can’t count how many schools are like this [in Cameroon].”– Blaise Mbargorba, Tomorrow Education’s President of the Board of Directors
