Need: Dropped outs are crying aloud for their personal development in Secondary/ high schools eduaction in Cameroon

It takes 7 years to complete high school studies in Cameroon. Above 85% who dropped out from school before the 7th year are girls. We can stop this!!!

Every year over 30.000 thousand girls dropped out from secondary and high school in Cameroon because they are orphans or their parents cannot pay for their fees. These voices are rising more and more in rural areas in Cameroon. To rescue this huge crises for these girls, Harcour Center Cameroon is working with Student Venture Cameroon, High Schools authorities and guidances of students to rescue 100 by August 2013 in rural areas in Boyo Division so that they can stay in school for one or two more years and complete their studies. It's painful to see a girl dropped out of school meanwhile she has just one or two years to complete her studies.Most often not because she is weak academically but because of the means to continue.

It will cost $95 to keep a person in school for one year. 60% would provide school fees for a child, 20% would provide uniforms and 20% will provide basic books for a year. This will cost $9500 for the one hundred teenagers. Please can you help keep one of these special vulnerable teenagers in school for a year? Can you share this urgent need with a friend or two. Our desire is to increase the number we help every year until the issues of school dropped outs amongst girls is eradicated.

Real world transformation can only take place when girls are part of the game. In Cameroon this force is greatly needed for the country's social and,economical transformation.

Thank you for sharing with us in this crucial need with vulnerable school teenagers girls.
