The sixth year conflict in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon have left many school children helpless each time it’s back to school.
Some have been displaced, some abandoned without parents and others forced to now live with a one form of disability.
As the struggle to keep children in school continues, initiatives like that of Ndichia foundation have continued to wipe away tears from the eyes of most families and kids in Bamenda.
Ndichia Foundation empowers children through education and the main focus of the Foundation is to break the yoke of poverty and encourage young people to indulge in learning.
The Foundation has taken as a duty to give assistance and make the needy ready for school each time it's back to school in the region.
