For two years now, the project "United for Hope" has been involved in Cameroon in Akono, a small town about an hour south of the capital Yaoundé.
In February 2020, 3 teachers together with 10 students from LLIS visited Cameroon and were able to establish a cooperation with the "Collège Stoll", a partly Francophone, partly Anglophone school with about 500 students.
First and foremost, we are helping them to modernise their infrastructure; neither the school nor the people living on or off campus have running water, for example. But even the most basic school materials are needed. We are also involved in a sustainability project, where the students learn to adopt more democratic values and pay more attention to their environment. This year, for example, a student committee will be elected for the first time at Collège Stoll, on the initiative of our students who were in Cameroon last year.
