The dry season has arrived at last in Cameroon, and work started immediately on the new classroom block at the Government Bilingual High School in the village of Ntui in the Centre region. The foundations were dug in record time and the groundwork has now been completed. The walls will start to go up in the next couple of days – and it is hoped that this school project will be completed early in the new year.
This school currently only has 12 classrooms for 852 pupils (including almost 100 Internally Displaced pupils from the NW Region). Many of the classrooms are made from wooden planks which deteriorate quickly in this environment, allowing animals, insects and snakes to enter the building. There is only one toilet at the school for all the children and the 83 staff to use.
Our project will provide a block of three new classrooms and an office, as well as a new latrine block.
