The materials were handed to the Minister of Secondary Education, Nalova Lyonga and are destined for schools in Cameroon, aimed at reinforcing distant learning in the context of the current COVID-19 health crisis.

The equipment include; Hard Drives, projectors, Laptops, Internet Modems, TV Cameras, and other accessories to improve on the newly introduced learning system.


According to the Cameroon Resident UNESCO Representative, Salah Khaled, the tools will help schools to receive lessons recorded in the UNESCO production studio. The lessons will also be aired on TV, Radio channels and other media.

“These equipments are a guarantee that we have a production studio that will record lessons which we can then transmit through radio, TV, mobile phones, internet or any other digital medium,” Khaled said.
