Farm and Handiworks Materials Program
CAMGEW promotes a system of education where children learn-by-doing. To do this, CAMGEW provided 21 schools in Oku with agriculture and handiwork materials and tools. These materials included wheelbarrows, spades, hoes, cutlasses, wrecks, diggers, saws of various types, hammers, carving knives, watering cans, sprayers to tackle pests, buckets, scales for weighing produce, business calculators, books for record keeping, locks, loins for marking, threads of various types, knitting pins, needles, polythene pots for tree nursing, etc. These items were worth Three Million Two Hundred thousand francs CFA (3,200,000 FCFA) or 5,000 Euros. This is to promote entrepreneurship skills in children as the learn-by-doing.
The money raised from products of handiwork and farms is used to buy didactic materials in school and support parent employed teachers financially. This helps fight poverty in school and create a good learning environment for children in schools. The children are prepared to be entrepreneurs in the future.
