11 students displaced by the Anglophone crisis and now schooling at Government Bilingual High School (GBHS) Atiela in Bamenda, North West region will be able to sit in for the General Certificate of Education examination, thanks to the Regional Assembly.
The North West Regional Assembly in a recent visit to the school, doled out a financial package of 396,000 FCFA for the 11 students in question to register for the General Certificate of Education (GCE) examination.
The exercise was pursuant to a talk given over 2000 students on Wednesday January 11, 2023, by representatives of the regional assembly who visited the institution. “We are really touched by the stories we have heard,” said Honourable Ghejung Awunti, Commissioner for Economic Development.
The hope and vision of the North West Regional Assembly, he went on, “is to give a better future to these kids. We wish them well in their studies and hope this relief package will make them to concentrate better.”
Thousands of kids remain out of school, due to the armed conflict in the North West and South West regions of Cameroon. The Regional Assembly is one of other institutions brought to life by government as solution to the armed conflict. Still, their presence have not been able to bring about a lasting end to the bloodshed and displacement of persons.
