Develop Africa is sponsoring and working in partnership with CAPEC on a special project - the Bitame Lucia Nursery and Primary School in Cameroon. 

Still under creation, the school is located in a rural area on the south-east outskirts of the Yaounde, Cameroon - specifically the rural area of Nkolfoulou. The goal of the school is to bring low-cost education to underprivileged children in that location.  Our Mission is to provide education to the children of Nkolfoulou, so they would not be deprived of education based on their locality or family financial circumstances. 

Through this project Develop Africa and CAPEC are enabling children to become self-sufficient. We are bridging the gap between rich and poor by offering good quality education for the most underprivileged. The Nursery and Primary will benefit children from Nkolfoulou village, Cameroon and about 2000 more children from other neighbouring villages (Baaba, Ntinga, Nkabo, Eboko, and Essebi).

Additional plans include:
