LTR began construction of its first project, the Founangue Library, in 2013. Since its opening, the Founangue Library has been a central meeting point for the community, providing access to school books for hundreds of students and serving as a safe place to study and learn.Maroua is in the Far North Region of Cameroon. It’s the home region of LTR Founder Alexis Wangemene.
The Maroua community is incredibly dedicated to creating educational opportunities for their children, but they are facing an uphill battle. Classrooms often have 100 students for 1 teacher, and illiteracy rates in the region are as high as 40%.
LTR is committed to helping this community realize its dream of providing high quality education for all children.
