Location

Situation

HEOFL seeks to support and advance practical education; education that allows the pupil to have access to the books and necessary equipment. Computer lessons in the rural schools in Cameroon are mostly theoretical and 75% of the kids cannot afford the required textbooks. It makes a big difference when a student can see, touch and use a computer or any other learning equipment during a teaching/learning lesson. Knowledge gained through practice and experience is always more effective.

Solution

Supporting rural schools with educational material will have a positively high impact both on the community and the pupils; it will open up new educational and economic opportunities in the rural area and foster a spirit of self reliance. Pupils will study in their own environment and compete on an equal level with their peers in urban private schools where such material is taken for granted. Lastly, learning tools will facilitate both teaching and learning methods. Teachers need textbooks.
