Cameroon: Government failing Barri school children

The government of Cameroon has a legal obligation to ensure that children within its borders have quality education. Despite this obligation, the government is failing children in Government School Barri.

Government School Barri is a primary school located in North West Cameroon, precisely in Menchum valley, Menchum Division.

The poor quality education received by children in Government School Barri is better explained in pictures obtained thanks to Civitas.

It is worthy to note that Government School Barri is not the only government-run school in Cameroon that is in desperate need of a makeover. 

Government School Kitiwum, for example, is also a case in point.

Hats off to struggling parents and teachers, many of whom live far below the poverty line, who have stepped up to the plate to better conditions for children in Government schools.

Civitas is working in Cameroon to ensure that all person enjoy all rights laid down in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), including the right to quality education

Join Civitas on Facebook and Twitter and help make respect for basic rights a reality in Cameroon.

  1. Unfortunately, it seems the children always suffer when the living and/or socio-economic conditions are poor.
