Child Protection, Education: Stakeholders Draw Up National Plan

It is aimed at boosting the curriculum of little children and strengthening respect for their rights.


National and international experts met in Yaounde over the weekend to discuss the future of Cameroon’s little children. Organised by the Ministry of Basic Education and the National UNESCO Commission, the two-day workshop from August 25-26, 2016, discussed the protection and education of little children, and later produced a white paper.

Organisers explained that the objective was to boost the curriculum of little children and also strengthen the respect of their rights. The workshop was preceded by a field trip in Yaounde from July 18-22, 2016, during which data was collected on the situation of little children in the city. Analysis of the data enabled educationists to make projections of the situation at the national level.

Workshop participants included educationists, UNESCO, UNICEF, representatives of partner ministries, charities and educational institutions. After focus group discussions, a national situation report on Little Child Protection and Education was produced, an action plan developed, different stakeholders selected and a monitoring plan for activities endorsed. Speakers at the event included Tekaligne of the UNESCO international head office in Geneva, Switzerland and Christian Morabito, an international expert, who spoke on “Protection and education of the little child: International prospects.”
