Bachirou is a Foulani student from the Central African Republic (CAR) living in a refugee site in Cameroon. He spends his time at school and working with his father in the merchant trade. Due to mass displacement, education of the Fulani tribe depends wholly on NGOs working in countries adjacent to CAR. At Cameroon’s border with CAR, many schools that provide education to Fulani, like Bachirou, are sponsored by JRS.
The #JRS #MercyinMotion campaign aims to provide 240,000 refugee children and youth with access to education by the year 2020. The campaign was launched on 8 December 2015 with the Holy Year of Mercy.
