VOCATIONAL PROGRAMS

In December of 2016, thanks to the generous support of Saint Francis University fundraising efforts, Guinea Exchange was able expand our Sewing School Program. We added six new students, each with brand new sewing machines.  Below are some videos of our enthusiastic staff and students as they unpacked the new machines.

Excited Students!

 

In January of 2014, Guinea Exchange began its vocational program with six students entering the new sewing school located in the Sonfoniya Gare neighborhood of Conakry. This four year certification program provides students with the skills needed to create a vocation in the craft of sewing. In addition to acquiring the necessary sewing skills, these students learn to read and write in their country's business language French as well as learning basic math skills.
