Schools in the East Region, Cameroon welcomes Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)
To introduce ESD in the East, WWF ESD resource persons trained 10 teachers and head teachers of 10 primary schools in November 2017 and January 2018. The teachers are working to develop pupils’ local games to facilitate the learning process. The teachers are carrying out ESD activities in their school communities and considerable improvements have been reported on the collaboration between teachers, parents and pupils.
The schools have also improved on hygiene and sanitation, while one school has developed its ESD master plan.
Baka pupils of Assoumdele II Village, where WWF donated a two-classroom structure in August 2018, are also benefitting from this innovative approach to learning.
