WE RING THE BELL CAMPAIGN

The sensitization campaign of families and communities for the education of children with disabilities

 dubbed “We Ring the Bell” 2022, under the theme “Leave no child Behind”, took place on April 27, 2022 at the Yaounde Town Hall. Organized by the Ministry of Social Affairs in collaboration with the Ministries of Basic Education, Secondary and Higher Education as well as our technical partner the Cameroon Baptist Convention Health Services (CBCHS), the campaign seeks to sensitize the public on education for children with disabilities in order to achieve Goal 4 of the SDGs which call on member states to promote inclusive and quality education for all learners.

This was followed by a message of the Executive Director of the Cameroon Baptist Health Services Professor Tih Pius who reiterated the importance of education for children with disability. He equally highlighted some of the actions carried out by CBCHS in favour of education for children with disability and insisted that equal learning opportunities should be given to all for a sustainable world. The children for the Government Bilingual High School Bafoussam acted a dram on inclusive education and leaving no child behind by demonstrating that disability is not inability.
