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.
