Cameroon’s Anglophone crisis continues

Moral Ethics and Rights Humanitarian Reawakening Foundation (MERHRAF) is asking the public to contribute to the Njama Njama Project to provide peace activism curriculum books to its Sustainable Peace Education Program and the MERHRAF Humanitarian Community Library in Cameroon, Africa.

Donate in time to raise $1,000 to support the MERHRAF Library in Cameroon for International Literacy Day on Sept. 8. Cash donations can be sent to MERHRAF Humanitarian Community Library at https://www.gofundme.com/f/merhraf-community-peace-library-in-cameroon-africa?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet

“Due to Anglophone crisis, many children have not been able to access education and are more likely to join any of the armed groups. Our duty, therefore, is to create avenues to remedy such among learners and youth as a whole,” said Dine Sunjoh of MERHRAF.

The best way to teach those at war is through moral and peace education. Moral Ethics and Rights Humanitarian Reawakening Foundation needs peace education materials and books, audios and videos to give access to those who might not be able to read in Cameroon Anglophone communities.

Moral Ethics and Rights Humanitarian Reawakening Foundation (MERHRAF) is asking for donations of learning materials for Anglophone communities affected most by the growing humanitarian crisis, since gathering in groups to learn or to commemorate in the Anglophone Region has always been targets of armed attacks.

The Foundation seeks to empower Anglophone communities to empower themselves. The issue of literacy is a key component of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, adopted by world leaders in September 2015, promotes, as part of its agenda, universal access to quality education and learning opportunities throughout people’s lives. Sustainable Development Goal 4 has as one of its targets ensuring all young people to achieve literacy and numeracy and that adults who lack these skills are given the opportunity to acquire them.

The Njama Njama Project accepts gently-used or new humanitarian books on peace, humanitarian ethics, virtues and character education. The project inspires and equips teachers to teach youth how to make positive contributions in the world. Njama Njama’s goal is to create a world where young people have the opportunity and skills to contribute to peace, by working to strengthen youth-led peace building initiatives, and strengthening coalitions and alliances among like-minded local groups and organizations. The project empowers civic engagement for a culture of peace through Youth Peacebuilding by teaching peace in schools and cultivating personal peace.

The project partners with local teachers and grassroots community organizations to implement peace education programs in schools across Cameroon.

The project tries to empower students to become the leaders of tomorrow. By requesting donations of humanitarian inspired books, it hopes to broaden the long-term ripple effect of the Sustainable Peace Education Program.

Together, people can help Cameroon’s Next Generation succeed in school and in life – simply by giving them inspirational books. Humanitarian books for all ages are needed.

The Njama Njama Project is a grassroots project completely run by Abigail Cyntje and the Moral Ethics and Rights Humanitarian Reawakening Foundation (MERHRAF), that strives for the absence of violence, oppression, inequality, and disparities. The Project was launched in November 2015, in Cameroon, Africa, to promote peace, by changing beliefs, one person at a time, through spreading awareness, of the virtue ahimsa which is the practice of non-harming.

Donations will accelerate youth becoming the next generation of humanitarian leaders, while supporting the non-profit Njama Njama Project’s mission to develop youth peace leadership and community involvement. Each book promotes virtuous ideals, teaching peaceful action, and furthering the program of action, outlined by the international declaration for a Culture of Peace, which has been established by the United Nations.
