On the Outside Looking In

Children can sense when they are missing out on something. These two boys, overhearing Word Alive's Nathan Frank interview other students at Bambalang’s Cameroon Baptist Convention (CBC) primary school, desperately try to see what is happening. Too bad they can’t fit through these small windows. Ndop cluster leadership believe that the success of Bambalang’s CBC primary school multilingual education program (see story, "Bright Future for the Next Generation") will lead to more schools using the multilingual education approach across the Ndop Plain. Soon, they hope there will be fewer children like these two who are on the outside looking in.
