Today, over 58 million children are out of school 31 million of which are girls and half of this number are girls in Sub Sahara alone. In Cameroon, there are over 280,000 children out of school most of which yet again are girls.
In 2000, world leaders made a commitment at the United Nations to ensure every child was in school and learning by the year 2015 but we are not very far off the year and this commitment is unlikely to be achieved.
