The school in Cameroon

Busuu will provide all donations to CAPEC, an organisation we have been proud to work with for several years.

Through their school in central Cameroon, CAPEC help provide an education for children who come from low-income families in the local area.

Many of the parents are illiterate and these pupils are often the first generation in their families to be getting an education.

Get onto busuu and get learning this December

We believe that everyone in the world deserves an education, and we want to help CAPEC as much as possible in their mission to educate the children of Cameroon.

Help us to make the difference and get a premium membership now!

(source: Wikipedia) Or if busuu.com were a country with a population of 30 million, we would be about the same size as Sudan, Peru, Malaysia or Uzbekistan. (source: Wikipedia)
