Former Humphrey Fellow Idriss CEO of Cameroon Educ Fdn

"Greetings from Cameroon. I am glad to inform you that with support from the Rotary Club of Down town Lacrosse Wisconsin and Rotary Foundation the Cameroon Education Foundation is currently constructing 60 toilets and 20 washhands facilities in 10 rural schools in Caneroon. The Lacrosse Club and Books for Africa have equally funded two 40-foot containers of books which have just arrived Cameroon as I write. Please note that this club, with Caledonia Club, are sponsoring the training of librarians and PTAs.

So far since I left the Humphrey School and addition to the above recently donated containers we have imported a total of ten containers of books to Cameroon to improve literacy. I will equally be guest speaker in the upcoming World Literacy conference in Oxford UK in March 2018."
