A busy end to the year... Two thousand kilometres were covered to equip the schools in the forest region. Orange Guinea volunteers sponsor the establishments and relay information in the various locations to support the use of the kits (demonstrations for parents, training for teachers).

Every establishment is run in partnership with the NGO Plan International Guinée.
For Aly Diakite, director of the Timbo Centre primary school (administrative region of Mamou): "we are very proud to be one of 30 schools benefiting from this programme in Guinea. We will do everything we can to be worthy of our sponsors’ trust and honour them. We are committed to using this equipment fully, especially to benefit the children who are the future of our country."

Thousands of children will be able to take advantage of this equipment.
At end December 2016, 26 schools were operational in the country.
