Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.

The ongoing crisis in Cameroon, located in Central Africa, has greatly impacted the educational system in the country, resulting in a lack of educational opportunities and poor educational status for many children. The crisis, which began in 2016, has caused tension between the Anglophone regions of Cameroon and the French-speaking government, leading to violent clashes and an increase in separatist movements. As a result, many schools have been shut down, and students have been unable to attend school.

Numerous challenges in the education sector, include a lack of access to education, low levels of enrollment, poor education quality, and high dropout rates, which are particularly profound in conflict-affected areas, where the issue of displaced children exacerbates the crisis.

According to UNICEF, at least 4.3 million people in Cameroon need humanitarian assistance, and the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) is estimated at 700,000. The conflict in the country's English-speaking regions (North West and South West) has displaced over 670,000 people since 2016, many of whom are school-aged children.

WELFARE AID FOR THE FUTURE (W.A.F) EDUCATION FOR EVERYONE PROJECT aims to address this by providing educational resources, scholarships, and mentorship to support their academic and personal growth. Through partnerships with local schools and community organizations, we will create a supportive network for those in most need to receive quality education and opportunities for success. We believe that education is a powerful tool to break the cycle of poverty and provide a pathway to a brighter future.

In addition to the closure of schools, the crisis has also led to a shortage in teachers, particularly in the English-speaking regions. Many teachers are afraid to work in these areas, leaving students without qualified educators. This has led to a decline in the quality of education, as many schools struggle to offer a well-rounded curriculum due to the lack of skilled and passionate teachers.

Our Founder Mr. Wolloh Alian stated that the "#BacktoSchoolbyWAF" Campaign was just the beginning of his ambitious 10-year educational plan. Over the next decade, the organization aims to empower over 100,000 people across Africa with educational materials and scholarships, starting with Cameroon.

Education is widely recognized as a fundamental right and is crucial for individuals and communities to develop, grow, and thrive. Education has the power to transform people's lives and provide them with the tools they need to achieve their goals and aspirations. Education is also key to promoting social and economic development, creating more opportunities for individuals, and building a better future for all. Unfortunately, access to education is not always equal, and many people around the world face barriers to accessing quality education. This is particularly true for those living in underprivileged communities, including orphans, refugees, and low-income families, who often lack the financial resources and other support needed to pursue education.

More so, the lack of access to education for displaced children in crisis-struck regions of Cameroon is a significant issue. Children living in IDP camps often face insecurity, health issues, and lack of access to educational infrastructure, such as schools and classrooms. The language barrier also presents a significant challenge in English-speaking regions, where most schools teach in French.

Again, students who have been able to continue their education face challenging circumstances. Many students have to travel long distances to access education, exposing them to the risk of violence and harassment. Others are forced to study in overcrowded classrooms, with inadequate resources and facilities that do not support academic growth.

Despite the many challenges, Cameroon has made some strides in improving access to education, increasing enrollment, and achieving gender parity in education. In 2018, the Cameroonian government launched a ten-year plan to improve the education system. The plan aims to increase access to education, improve education quality, and reduce disparities in access to education.

Overall, the crisis in Cameroon has greatly impacted the education system, leaving many children without access to quality education. The situation is especially dire in the English-speaking regions, where schools have been shut down or are struggling to offer quality education due to the shortage of teachers and facilities. It is essential that the government and other stakeholders work together towards finding a lasting solution to the crisis, to enable children in Cameroon to access quality education and thrive.

This is where Welfare Aid for the Future-W.A.F- comes in;
Over the next 10 years, WELFARE AID FOR THE FUTURE (W.A.F) EDUCATION FOR EVERYONE plans to expand its reach and provide educational resources, scholarships, and mentorship to orphaned children in need across Cameroon. The organization's long-term goals include:
  1. Building partnerships with more schools and community organizations to increase access to quality education for orphaned children.
  2. Increasing the number of scholarships available to orphaned children to ensure they have the resources to access education.
  3. Establishing sustainable mentorship and career development programs that support the academic and personal growth of orphaned children.
  4. Expanding the organization's network to reach more orphaned children in need, particularly those in rural areas.

Starting with #BacktoSchoolbyWAF2023, to benefit communities in Buea, Limbe, and Tiko in the Southwest Region of Cameroon. Gifts of books, school bags, pens, and other school items are some of the materials Welfare Aid for the Future (W.A.F) will be giving out this year of 2023, to support the educational system of Cameroon.
