Cameroon tribe in jeopardy as ancestral forest disappears
The Baka tribe of Cameroon faces extreme poverty and serious discrimination that has left members with high levels of illiteracy, unemployment, alcoholism and teenage pregnancy.
Urgent action is needed before the Baka way of life is completely eradicated, says Plan International, which has gained unprecedented access to Baka communities via a project aiming to increase levels of primary education amongst tribe members.
