Alanouwaly Guinea Centre
We are supporting our partners in Guinea to develop the Alanouwaly Centre in Donghol, Boke which has been created for people to get support, acquire and exchange knowledge to improve their lives. The Centre has been built over 8 years by over 200 volunteers, with a current core of 20, who helping and protecting it. They are growing some foods and through UK donations they ave now acquired sheep, goats and chicken. It now runs a computer learning centre and is working towards a sewing project. Alanouwaly has successfully completed the first clean Water project with solar pump in partnership with Alexander Sigmund and his Eau Pure project. Alanouwaly Salifou Sylla stands for non-corruption and fair co-operation between people. We believe people have the power to help themselves if they have access to the necessary tools & knowledge.
The Centre now consists of:
- the main House, which is half built with 3kW solar power housing the computer learning and water project, waiting for sewing rooms to be completed
- a visitor’s house with 4 rooms and 3 bathrooms,
- a traditional thatched roof shelter as a meeting place
- a large amount of land where fruit & vegetable are grown
- 3 stables with sheep, goats & chicken
The Centre also runs a car to help people to get their produce to the market and to act as an emergency vehicle to take people to hospital. See Car Project
