” I believe in the power of strong local communities”

As a retired inspector of Basic Education in Cameroon I have seen a lot of schools especially in rural areas. I have spoken with many parents about the dreams they have for their own children, for them to have a better future.

Parents fully agree with education being the key for development. They also want to contribute to achieve this goal. They realize that Knowledge for Children brings them the opportunity to realize the dreams they have for their children. For them to contribute a little money for the books is a small effort they are willing to do. The community has an essential role to play in this way and it gives them the responsibility for the programmes and the books.

There will always be strong leaders in the community and with their own contribution and involvement they also have the tools to change their own community in a sustainable way.
