Cameroons education system is a proven failure. The education system encourages students to be grades chasers rather than train students to succeed in real life.

Cameroon streets are filled with idling graduates who cannot do anything to help themselves because they were not trained to be productive.
The education system concentrates so much on fast learners leaving slow learners with no choice but to be tagged failures. Cameroon needs an education system where the emphasis is laid on interactive learning where students focus on real life lessons.

Wokome is actively working with students in Buea Cameroon with an engaging curriculum that leads them to real life success not success only in grades. The following are some vital areas Wokome focus her attention on for its beneficiaries.

  • Help beneficiaries realize their vision for the future
  • Assist beneficiaries in building a strong foundation which helps them realize their dreams.
  • Provide the necessary assistance beneficiaries need to get to their dreams. Sometimes its financial assistance.
  • Provide beneficiaries with an alternative learning space where learning is engaging and fun.
  • Above all, Wokome gives its beneficiaries the confidence they need to push through challenges on their way to real life success and not
    just high grades.

 

 

What inspired the founder of Wokome to engage on mission to change Cameroons education system.
It was a Monday morning in the month of September 1987, a day little Marlyse has been waiting to came for a long time. It’s the day little Marlyse
started schooling in a small primary school in Buea Cameroon. She was very much excited in her well fitted uniform to take the lead to school. It was her first day in school and she was filled with expectations mainly because her parents told her school was gonna be the best the best thing that was ever gonna happen to her.

The year went through quickly and the final examination was written but little Marlyse did not make it to the second class. She was labeled and classified as too dull to proceed to the next class.

The excitement with which she ran off to school a year before was gradually turning into misery. If the teacher I believe in so much labels me as failure then there is certainly something wrong with me, little Marlyse thought to herself. The thought of being labeled as a failure depreciated her self confidence. As her self confidence depreciated, the inability to express herself in groups or in the public set in.

As she manage with depression through school, her primary admiration remained students who scored high grades in school until after her degree when she realized even those students who scored so high in school were having a hard time as much as she was getting something to do with their lives.
After everything, Marlyse realized success in life has no relationship with scoring high grades in class. She has just spent the last 14 years in school being labeled as dump while those that were labeled as intelligent were as confuse as she was after school.

It was clear to her that she was a failure because of the failed educational system and puzzled to find out what the solution to such a shattered system
could be, she flew halfway across the globe to obtain training that could enable her rescue a death educational system in Cameroon. Her mission is to create an educational system in Cameroon that leads students to real life success.
