Livelihood of the people in Santa is based on agricultural production under the subsistence farming system. By the year 1980s, the area’s economy was based on coffee production which was affected by the coffee wilt and dissolved completely and this problem contributed a lot towards the economic backwardness of the community and parents therefore, become chronically poor and passive. Many people in the area have been strongly infected /affected by the HIV/AIDS and other diseases like Malaria. As a result of the pandemic, a big number of children are orphans mainly with care givers who mostly cannot provide them with the basic school requirements. The school has outdated classroom block which was constructed and the roofs is currently leaking heavily and the walls with cracks possess serious risk to the lives of the boys and girls. This block accommodates four classrooms and during rainy season, classes are conducted under tree shade or the nearby Church which is also too old. This building in its current condition is not a healthy environment for learning and requires immediate attention to save the boys and girl’s life and this provides a good learning environment. The poor learning environment with; Lack of enough improved classrooms, Lack of good latrine for boys, Lack of bathrooms especially the girl child, Lack of adequate seating facility and other has led to reduction in the number of children and hence growth in school drop out . The low incomes due to the existing HIV/AIDs infections and crop diseases, very few parents/care givers can afford the fulfillment of School requirements and to solicit funds for school’s improvement and therefore, the existing outdated classroom block and failure of the parents and community to put in place other important structures, contributes a lot towards the dropouts of children, main in upper classes and again, the situation is very dangerous for the young people who come for learning. Therefore, there is a greater need for financial support to construct new permanent structures in order to improve the School’s learning environment and to avoid the risks. This project attempts to address the situation mentioned above, with the overall aim of creating an enabling and conducive quality learning environment to both children and communities. There is therefore, a very urgent need to provide support to the School by constructing new classrooms, a new VIP Latrine and provision of desks to reduce the high ratios and sustaining the boys and girls in school. The project will facilitate a participatory process where committee members consisting of children, parents and communities will be identified and equipped with basic skills to manage the school facilities. Technical support will be sought from the District Water and Education offices to contribute to the construction and the maintenance of the school facilities for sustainability.

uncontrolled urbanization is quickly wiping out the Bafut UNESCO World Heritage Center.
Culture matters! It’s widely accepted that people, not multinational’s programs, drive the success of local communities and social sector organizations. Yet when it comes to investing in our sociocultural sector’s talent in youth, agriculture, and environmental protection, why do we overlook this?
