Schools in Guinea
There are many “palm roof schools” in Guinea. New school buildings – are usually built on church property. The schools are open to all children in the neighbourhood. At the inauguration, the imam and our priest often pray together for a blessed future.
The foundation has built schools in Boke, Sanoya, Nzerekure, Kankan, Macenta, Kissidougu, Faranah and Gueckedou.
Further projects are planned in Mamou, Lola and Kindia.
The Primary School in Boke started in 2017 with two classes. At the time of the inauguration in 2020 there were 35 students. For 2021, we expect more than 300 students.
In Sanoya near Conacry, the capital of Guinea, there is an École-Primaire since 2014. The majority of the students are Muslims from the neighbourhood. For 2020, 300 children are expected to be taught in the 2 new school buildings of the foundation.
The Wilhelm Leber School is located in Nzerekure. Founded in 2008 as a kindergarten, it currently has 26 pupils and expects 300 children after the inauguration in the next school year.
