Alanouwaly Salifou Sylla Foundation UK is assisting the Guinean organisation running the Community Centre with fundraising and resources. The Alanouwaly Centre aims to help people learn and find solutions to their many problems. We are assisting environmental projects, learning and life improvement skills. Alanouwaly Guinea volunteers have conducted a thorough consultation with local people who said that unsafe water is the biggest problem in their lives, and we are proud to have helped complete the first clean water project with solar pump in partnership with water engineer, Alexander Sigmund and his Eau Pure project. The Centre has started a computer learning center and runs affordable transport with its car, which also acts as an emergency vehicle free of charge (there are no ambulances), with at least 1 such emergency @ month. Since music has the power to unify people from all backgrounds, Alanouwaly Guinea also promotes the amazing musical culture of Guinea creating a space and connections with many excellent musicians. The center now has a visitors/volunteer house with 4 rooms with 3 bathrooms. Anyone wanting to join the projects, learn music or experience the amazing countryside and culture of Guinea is invited to visit.  See Projects  Alanouwaly Guinea  has also offered discretional emergency help to locals in desperate need.

A lack of prospects can turn many young Guineans to petty crime or to do all to flee to Europe, creating more economic migrants. Alanouwaly has created a place to exchange and to envisage a future. Under the leadership of Seny Coumbassa Alanouwaly Guinea has had a motivating and stabilising influence on the surrounding area.  The Learning and Information Project  is creating brand-new possibilities.
