In January 2014 Guinea Exchange opened a small trade school for girls in the capital city of Conakry. The school focuses on sewing, but also integrates reading, writing, French, and basic math skills.
The students, ranging from 9 to 17 years old are led by Fodé Mansaré and Lazanzi. They all are deeply proud to be learning, developing a valuable skill, and building a future for themselves and their families.
The certification program lasts four years and only costs $45 per month, per student, to gift this life-changing opportunity for one Guinean girl.
