The international community in the year 2000, fixed objectives to reduce the poverty rate to half in the whole world before 2015. From the 20th to the 22nd September, the chiefs of states and of government met at New York around the secretary general of the United States. At the forum of United States, majority of the world leaders confirm that the Objectives of the Millennium for Development (OMD) can be attain. Rural assistance by its actions is joining itself to the international community so that in 2015, its actions should be realised in 2015 by exhorting donating countries to make sure that their aids goes directly to those concern principally. Rural assistance created since 2 years now to fight against poverty in rural zone, has start up its program called (rural education).
It’s a program of every year which, by the distribution of school fournitures, help parents and students of primary and it secondary school of rural zones, where 98°/° of the population lacks a job. More than 8000 students benefit from our program this year. Aide rural take advantage to this situation, to launch a call to the Cameroonian authorities and to the international community so that they should look into case of rural zones where more is still to be done: lack of infrastructures, illiteracy of the majority of population, malnutrition, lack of medical treatments and drinking water etc. in some rural zones, populations are hardly cut oneself off from the whole world. As example, we have been in a secondary school where students who receive theorical informatics course since 6 years, testify that they have never seen a computer, while it is indispensable tool for education in this actual millennium.
