Teaching the lessons carved out from Pope Francis’s Encyclical Letter Laudato si' is gradually gaining ground in schools run by the Tertiary Sisters of Saint Francis (TSSF) in Cameroon.


The proposal that Laudato Si be taught in-depth in TSSF schools was recently introduced in a program dubbed Walking Together with the Gospel of Creation (WATOGOSC). It was initiated by Sister Alphonsa Kiven from Cameroon, the Congregational Representative for Synodality.


The program was funded by the Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation Commission (JPIC) through the help of Sister Sheila Kinsey, then Co- Secretary of the JPIC in Rome. Introduced in March 2023, the program aims to raise awareness and understanding regarding Laudato Si’, and to provide practical training regarding ecological conversion for the students.


The initiative is a response to Pope Francis’s call to rekindle the dedication towards the young people in renewing their passion for an inclusive education.
