Keep Girls In School. Period.
Young girls in Cameroon miss an average of 4 days of school each month during their period simply because they lack the supplies to allow them to continue to attend. That is nearly a week of school - 20 percent of a school month. We think that should stop.

Our Dental Hygiene Education project teaches the importance of mouth hygiene and using a toothbrush properly and regularly as of utmost importance in all communities and local areas of Cameroon. Most children in these remote parts of Cameroon have grown up never using a toothbrush.

This has contributed to a number of mouth- and dental-related illnesses, whereby most of these children lose their teeth at a very young age due to a lack of basic hygiene education and sanitation material. The shortage of professional dentistry in many regions results in irregular or non-existent

The shortage of professional dentistry in many regions results in irregular or non-existent check-ups. In addition, the health insurance schemes in developing countries are generally poor, which also contributes to the low mouth and dental hygiene standards.

CDN regularly educates various groups of children on how important it is to have good mouth hygiene and maintain healthy teeth. Children not only receive exercises on how to brush their teeth properly but also on how they can prevent themselves from catching various mouth diseases and tooth infections.

Each child receives a complimentary toothbrush, toothpaste, a drinking cup and most importantly animated instructions from the volunteer instructor on how to keep their mouths and teeth clean. In our effort to better educate both children and adults, we always remind them of the 4 steps to a healthy smile – Brush, rinse, floss and see your dentist!
