We have sponsored the education of 40 Guinean girls since 2008 at the Ecole Primaire de Tombo II through the Better Schools Project. To offset high school costs and improve attendance, we provided school supplies (uniforms, notebooks, pens and backpacks), toys, personal hygiene products and small stipends to our sponsored girls. We also sponsored school fees for select students who faced considerable hardship and were at risk.
We built a water site at the Ecole Primaire de Tombo II that benefited 1630 students, their teachers, and the surrounding community. We renovated classrooms at the Ecole Primaire de Abdoulaye N’diaye. The renovation included fixing broken floors, painting classrooms and renovating blackboards. We also donated bags of cements and other construction tools to the community of Kamba to support their effort of building a school. We donated toys and supplies to students at the school and at Ecole Primaire Banlieue as part of our toys drive.
Our young supporter Paloma Claire Figueroa donated toys and story books which we donated to the 2 Octobre school in Conakry to help children in need. We also donated school supplies to a struggling public school in Dakar, Senegal.
2017 has been a year of building, resilience, and courage. We are so grateful to be on this journey together with you – thank you! We look forward to changing more lives with you in 2018!
We are thrilled to launch our campaign to raise awareness about ending FGM and to shed light on the plight of the more than 200 million women and girls who have been cut.
Happy Day of the Girl! During my trip to Guinea, I had the opportunity to interact with many girls. We spoke about their goals, visions, and fears.
I have a universal question: Do women’s lives really matter?
The answer to this question depends on where you are in the world. If you are in the Republic of Guinea, no, women’s lives do not matter. If you are the husband, child, or the family member of Salematou Camara, women’s lives do not matter. If you are Salematou Camara, your life really does not matter.
Aissata Camara, an NYU Wagner alumni and co-founder of the There is No Limit Foundation explained to participants at the hackathon that SMS was the best technology to use. “When there is a problem many peoples’ first instinct at these events is to create an app,” she said. “I was able to give [participants] the cultural context so they could understand [that] certain things wouldn’t work. I helped them realize the best technology is SMS technology.”
On Saturday, November 1st and Sunday, November 2nd, 2014, There Is No Limit Foundation partnered with the Greene House and Design Tinkering Club at the New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering (NYU Poly) to gather technologists, makers, hackers, designers, activists, and medical experts to work on implementable solutions to address the Ebola outbreak currently in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and threatening the rest of the world.
On October 24th, 2014, There Is No Limit Foundation co-sponsored the first walk in NYC to fight against ebola in collaboration with the West African Ebola Task Team led by the United African Congress (UAC) and Give Them A Hand Foundation. Our Co-Founder and Executive Vice President, Aissata M.B. Camara message to the crowd of attendees was clear:”Ebola is a global problem that requires a global solution. Let’s fight to end ebola so we can go back to promoting the security and dignity of people.”
Nine-year old Paloma has to be one of the most adorable little girls in New York City. She loves to read, draw and sing. Her favorite foods include chocolates and carrots. Yes, she’s young but speak with her and you can sense that she has a developed understanding of the world. Last year, she donated some of her favorite toys to kids in Guinea.
In the grand scheme of work, it’s easy to forget about your website and blog. Actually, these two big marketing tools can start to feel like an obligation. Creating content becomes a chore and you lose sight of the power these tools hold. So in December, we embarked on a long journey of creating a user friendly website and blog that represented our work and who we are at There Is No Limit Foundation.
