Our commitment to society
Navigio Academy in Cameroon
Almost ten years ago, Navigio initiated the construction of a Navigio Academy school in the village Bandja in Cameroon. Thanks to Navigio’s clients we have been able to give up to 500 students, mainly girls and young mothers, access to education and therefore the opportunity to provide for themselves and their families in the future.
The children are educated in sewing, hotel and restaurant operations as well as computer science. Lots of work has also been made educating the local administration in democracy and human rights together with Forum Syd and SIDA. The aim is to sustainably contribute to improved living conditions for girls, young mothers and other rural residents.
Our long term commitment Navigio has financed the building of a new school house, which has allowed an increased number of girls attending the school. During 2015 the school received the new name Navigio Academy. In addition we have provided the school with clean water. The water source now supplies the entire village. We continuously support the the school funding teacher salaries, as this is crucial to be able to run school operations.
