Sponsorship of Children
During this year, 22 children, including 17 girls, were sponsored in four partner schools. These children benefited from paying their school fees, as well as school uniforms and supplies. In addition, we took care of children's clothing and sanitary expenses as much as possible. Moreover, an educational monitoring was provided for each child.
Sewing and Embroidery
During this year, 11 girls were trained in sewing and 5 in embroidery, for a total of 16. Like most of the beneficiaries of our actions, these girls are either orphans or from divorced families. / or poor.
The Forum on Sustainable Culture
Eighty percent of the Guinean population lives mainly from agriculture. However, production remains insufficient in relation to demand. This is mainly explained by the fact that the Guinean farmers mostly practice subsistence farming, with the means and often inadequate farming techniques. In addition, women working in agriculture derive little pecuniary benefit for a tremendous amount of work.

Soap Making and Dyeing
In this component, we organized a training of trainers. Thus, we trained fifteen women from several localities. These women were trained for two days in Conakry.

These meetings were organized in collaboration with the COFIG (Coalition of Women and Girls of Guinea). They trained 50 women per meeting. At the end of the training, the women committed themselves to organizing training sessions in their communities on the issues discussed.

At Hagar's House, a homeless shelter for single mothers and two-parent families, we adopted the large family room on the first floor to refresh the room, each time a new family moves in.  This project occurs 4-5 times per year. Each exiting family keeps the items to start life in their new home.
