Thank you for helping education in Cameroon!

A huge thank you to all of you who helped us reach our target of 50 million busuu-berries in the Learn2Help campaign this month. Thanks to all your hard work, busuu will provide the Cameroon Association for the Protection and Education of the Child (CAPEC) with enough money to build a classroom at their school in Central Cameroon.

Expanding the school

You can be very proud of all your learning this month as every berry helped busuu provide enough money to build a whole classroom for the CAPEC school for low-income families in Central Cameroon. The classroom will be built in the new year and will provide enough space for up to 40 children to learn at the school. The money donated will also provide all the classroom furniture that the pupils need.

Continuing CAPEC’s great work

CAPEC do great work helping to educate and protect young people in an area of Cameroon where literacy rates are low and many families are unable to afford to send their children to school. Here at busuu we are proud of our relationship with this amazing charity and proud of our users for helping us donate so much to such a good cause this month.

Keep up the motivation

And remember that you benefited from your hard work too, with every busuu-berry demonstrating that you’re learning a language with busuu. So keep up the good work and look out for some exciting tips and tools to keep you motivated into 2014!

    Hello Julia,

    The busuu berries you have earned from the 1st to the 20th of December have already contributed to help the children in Cameroon. Thank you for your contribution.

    Hi, I am interested in knowing how you translate 50 000 berries into money? What is the financial worth of a berry? Has some company sponsored these berries? My question is merely for the sake of interest.
