(Business in Cameroon) - The representative of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (HCR) in Cameroon, Lazare-Etien Kouassi, has just transferred a batch of 16 classrooms to schools in East Cameroon. This infrastructure, we learn, will allow Central African refugees, whose education level is very weak to attend school, the UN organisation noted.
While transferring these classrooms, the representative of the UN organisation in Cameroon was listed a litany of other problems whose resolution would allow a better quality of care for the Central African refugees received in the East Cameroon region.
It is a question, we learned, of insufficient school infrastructure, a glaring shortage of teachers and teaching materials, as well as the incapacity of parents of students to pay their children's school fees, children who for the most part arrived in Cameroon after the clashes following the overthrow of ex-Central African President François Bozizé. That was in March 2013.
