Feel free to use the following resources if you'd like to teach your students about the children and culture of Cameroon while they create their artwork.
Known as "Africa in miniature", The Republic of Cameroon is a country in Central Africa with vast geographical and cultural diversity, home to more than 24 million people. The official languages of Cameroon are English and French because the French and British governments colonized Cameroon after World War I, though the people speak more than 200 different languages and make up more than 200 ethnic groups. Cameroon it has one of the highest literacy rates in the continent, however, progress in Cameroon has been stifled by corruption, authoritarian rule, violent conflict between the English-speaking population and the government, and an insurgency by the jihadist group Boko Haram that has displaced over one million women, men, and children.
