On Saturday, January 25, 460 students, parents, teachers and partner school principals gathered in the Center for Reading and Cultural Activities (CLAC, in french) in Yaoundé for the launch of a KA Lite pilot trial.

5th grade students from 7 schools in Yaoundé were chosen to use the program, which will run over the next 10 weeks. The main objective of this initial event was to raise awareness among parents about the Khan Academy’s potential for their children and the benefits of the offline version of Khan Academy, KA Lite, which is developed and maintained by Foundation for Learning Equality, an independent organization. 

The pilot is being run by Bibliothèque Sans Frontières (BSF - Libraries without Borders)
