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 is now running a computer learning in:
- internet, etc
- also: computer repair lessons
- help with CV
The computer classes led by a Guinean IT graduate Seckou Cissoko fund themselves through affordable fees. He also performs the maintenance and trains apprentice Chery N’Daw Sompare.
We are 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.
All projects are working towards self-sufficiency.
