Construction of a new primary school in Kamsar
The current project “Building a new school in Kamsar - Republic of Guinea” draws attention to a fundamental problem in the African society. The state of Guinea doesn't fulfill its tasks in education, i.e. the failure to ensure schooling for all children.
- The rate of enrollment in primary school - École primaire - is around 50% and in a secondary school - École secondaire - only 10%.
- The illiteracy rate in the general population is still more than 56%.
We therefore see our task in improving children's educational opportunities. Only by having a perspective in the country one can succeed in preventing people from wanting to leave their country in order to flee to Europe and build a future there. We want to help the Guineans to help themselves.
With the inclusion of a bakery and a kitchen, we will offer children an opportunity for affordable food. We want to provide labour and apprenticeship positions and we will finance the operation of the school with sales proceeds.
