Gilbert Mboubou has devoted his life to teaching. With your help, he can improve the teaching skills of many teachers.
“I didn’t have anything when I began school, no books, no notebooks, not even a pen. After selling three kola nuts that I had found, I was able to buy a notebook and a nib. I didn’t have any ink and dipped the nib into the inkwell of the classmate sitting next to me. One day, tired of seeing ink smeared in my hair, my uncle gave me a Bic, allowing me to study much better at the elementary school, go onto middle school and high school, become a teacher, a dean, a writer and now the author of a manual entitled “Evaluating Results” that we use to train teachers with”. Gilbert has dedicated his life to teaching in the western Hauts-Plateaux region in Cameroon. “Thanks to the training sessions, teachers are able to thoroughly evaluate the difficulties each individual student faces and find solutions. This has helped us to improve the quality and efficiency of their teaching skills”.
