Guinea

Almost 5 years after the return of Constitutional Order, Guinea is still faced with social and economic difficulties that put its future in jeopardy. When the government was getting ready to embark on large-scale projects to transform the country, the health crisis represented by the Ebola epidemic has greatly shaken the plan for national development.

Since 2003, we have been working in Guinea to promote peaceful coexistence between communities, achieved through inclusive dialogue, educational initiatives, and partnerships with local women and youth organizations. In recent years our staff members, based in Conakry and Nzérékoré, have utilized their expert knowledge of Guinea’s social dynamics to enhance community responses to the Ebola outbreak.
