SMART Bilingual and Nursery Primary School was started in Babenga, littoral region of Cameroon in 2019 to accommodate the influx of internally displaced persons(IDPs) from the North west and Southwest regions due to the ongoing Anglophone crisis in Cameroon. The current school enrollment is about 500 students and that includes a nursery section and primary school within the same complex. In addition to the standard government issued curriculum, the staff encourages students to practice extracurricular activities such as farming and sports activities. The students boast of their own farm which they nurture and are very proud of.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to Change the world.
September 2021 - Sports Wear Donation
44.5 Foundation has, through its Cameroon chapter, adopted SMART Bilingual Primary and Nursery School in Babenga, Cameroon. To kick off the 2021/2022 academic year, we decided to lend support to the staff of the school through a sports wear donation. The giveaway took place at the school premises. The staff of 27 were elated when informed that our Foundation was coming that afternoon to distribute their long desired uniforms. On account of the school’s limited budget, they did not have the funds to provide the teachers with the sports wear. After a brief welcome speech, we proceeded to the distribution of the sports wear to the staff. The school administrator was full of praise for our continued support of the school. We stand by our promise to honor our commitments in assisting SMART BNPS as they strive to provide education to the less fortunate.
January 2021 - School Textbook Drive
By way of our Cameroon Chapter, we were able to adopt a school and provide textbooks for the ENTIRE school. We are working towards raising funds to help all students be able to pay for their tuition, textbooks, and obtain the needed school supplies for the 2021 – 2022 school year.
