Education Universal access to education is widely recognized as one of the most important steps in giving youth access to better economic and social opportunities and breaking individuals, families, and communities out of the cycle of poverty. Unfortunately, in Cameroon, the minimal fees for primary and secondary school remain out of reach to many, and the burden of providing adequate learning infrastructure and sufficient teaching staff falls on parents and communities. As a result, education in Cameroon faces numerous challenges, such as: a lack of school infrastructure and ongoing use of dilapidated structures insufficient and/or unequipped classrooms insufficient trained teachers, lack of water and poor sanitation in schools, children are unable to complete the academic year or advance due to lack of fees. Our Education Program addresses these challenges through the provision of scholarships to underprivileged children and through the construction, rehabilitation, and equipping of dilapidated educational structures. We also construct toilets and water supplies for schools, and provide assistance to school environmental programs. S o far, SHUMAS has achieved the following results in this program area: The construction and rehabilitation of more than 367 classrooms across the country since 2003, along with the provision of 2391 benches. The provision of scholarships to approximately 100 students at all levels of school each academic year. Assistance to the school garden programs of more than 40 schools to facilitate income- generation for the school and plant the values of environmental management and protection among youth. The construction of potable water at almost 70 schools. The construction of toilet blocks at more than 170 schools across the country.
