Break the cycle
Mostly in rural areas, the indirect cost of education is still referred to by families as “lost income” or loss of earnings. Although difficult to estimate, it often leads to parents’ reluctance to enroll their children in school. Rather than opt for schooling, parents prefer to send their children to work to increase the family income.
In the long term, the desertion of schools will lead to an illiterate, frustrated, ill-equipped, and poorly exploited population, inevitably reinforcing the fragility of Cameroon, and of Africa in general. Faced with this calamitous prospect, we have put in place solutions to reduce or even eliminate these inequalities, in order to promote opportunities.
Training, accountability and empowerment
In order to break the vicious circle (under-schooling-analphabetism-unemployment-precariousness-rural exodus-frustration-urban plagues) in which rural communities are plunged, Pierre Thierry Noah Foundation sets up a special schooling program for children in rural areas who present a strong academic potential.
The social environment from which they come from should no longer be an obstacle to their personal achievement. On the contrary, it is relevant to equip them to improve their original environment, without alienating it. This is what makes this project special: schooling reinforced by training, empowerment and autonomy.
