At ICA Canada, we understand that education is foundational to great change. Education leads to sustainability. Education promotes equality. Education empowers humanity. In times of great uncertainty education provides stability. And most importantly education gives hope and inspiration for future generations.
Cameroon is challenged by crises. Civil unrest and poverty have led to thousands of Cameroonian children with POOR ACCESS to quality education.
Despite a 93.5% enrolment, attendance rates are 47.7% for girls and 56.7% for boys (2011).
Low attendance is due to COST (families must pay for uniforms and book fees), socio-cultural bias against girls, child labor and more recently school closers due to civil unrest.
There is INADEQUATE INFRASTRUCTURE: 1.8 Million seats for children although 2.9 Million attended.
Isolated areas are under served.
Our Vision:
A world where all communities and individuals have access to the determinants of well being and sustainability.
Our Mission:
Eliminate barriers to sustainable growth in Cameroon, West Africa by supporting locally developed and implemented initiatives.
