Guinea is rich in resources and potential. But development in this West African nation has been thwarted by a range of factors: Fragile and ineffective government stalls services. A hobbled infrastructure means long journeys for short distances. Ethnic tensions wax and wane. Slash-and-burn agriculture destroys forests and depletes the land. In recent years, Guineans have battled Ebola. The largest Ebola outbreak in history began in Guinea in 2013.
Relief International partners with communities in Guinea to tackle challenges and better realize their potential. RI’s work in Guinea:
- Enabled communities to combat the spread of Ebola through education and social mobilization
- Trains community members to advocate for themselves with government
- Empowers farmers with knowledge about sustainable, productive agriculture
