Learning & Information Centre

Learning and Information Centre Project

Education and knowledge are the key to improve your life.

But Guinea faces:

  • poverty ranking: 178 out of 187 (Unicef )
  • literacy at 29%
  • skills training hampered by a complete lack of resources
  •  lack of resources and expertise holding back all development
  • women have less chance of getting skills and knowledge

To help people to find solutions for themselves we have raised funds to complete the building of a learning and information centre at the Alanouwaly Centre in Donghol Guinea.

Alanouwaly Guinea Centre now offers:

  • ICT training with 50/50 male and female students
  • skill acquisition and development,
  • community exchange

For this project we have successfully collected for:

  • – – construction of house for projects
  • – – 3Kw Solar system & installation
  • – – computers and equipment
  • – – computer rooms with tables chairs, electricity and other equipment
  • – – flatscreen Television & DVD player

The computer learning centre has now started. We are still looking for donations of working computers, in particular desktops.

Update on sewing project:

We have 20 sewing machines and a lot of materials donated by IKEA and the electricity to run this, but:

The sewing training needs around £1500 to complete building works.

We are fundraising to get the sewing project off the ground. In the meantime are lending sewing machines to local women to increase their income.
