Education is a fundamental right of every child, whether rich or poor.
Primary and secondary education is nominally free in government-run institutions in Cameroon, but the burden of providing adequate learning infrastructure and sufficient teaching staff falls predominantly on parents and communities especially rural and urban poor communities.
There are a handful of children who are orphans who have no one to care for them, children of single parents where the lone parent faces difficulties in educating the children or better still children who leave with parents that have absolutely no source of income.
We have most of this vulnerable children are often very intelligent and lack the means, by this we are going to value their potentials and make them feel life like their fellow brothers and sisters who have the opportunity.
As a result, many of these communities have inadequate school infrastructure and dilapidated structures, insufficient/unequipped classrooms, insufficient trained teachers, and lack of water and sanitation in schools. This leads to overcrowded classrooms, poor performance among pupils, high dropout rates, and a risky learning environment.
To contribute towards an inclusive and equitable quality education that promote lifelong learning opportunities for all, through the construction, rehabilitation, and equipping of dilapidated educational structures and the provision of scholarships to underprivileged children.
- improving school infrastructure in rural and poor urban communities through the construction of classrooms, rehabilitation and equipping of dilapidated structures and the construction of modern toilet blocks and stores
- Providing scholarships to underprivileged children (who without these scholarships will stay at home).at the nursery, primary and higher education levels
- Inculcating values of environmental management in pupils and students through practical training on organic farming and tree planting techniques and setting up school environment Programs
- Improving water and hygiene situations in schools by providing potable water to schools, construction of toilet blocks with hand washing facilities and provision of drinking pails to schools

Some difficulties of the centers
The center functions normally apart from the following difficulties:
- Insufficient funds to reinsert these youths in the society
- Almost all of them take drugs and that could make the center dangerous especially after they have taken the drugs
- It is quite challenging to deal with those who have an unstable character.
