The Challenges in the Community
Many Tikar and Pygmy children have no books, pencils, paper or backpacks—the basic school supplies that children need. Most schools don’t have desks, textbooks, or even chairs for the students. Children as young as six years old carry their own stools back and forth to school every day, sometimes traveling up to six miles roundtrip. Even so, students in these rural villages keep coming to school to pursue their dream of getting an education.
