Plan has been working in Guinea since 1989, helping poor children to access their rights to education, health, sanitation and protection.
We help more than 34,000 children in 50 communities across the country.
Currently, Plan Guinea is focusing on reducing the number of pupils dropping out of school and helping youths too old to enroll in school to find work, by providing them with school kits and professional kits to advance them in their chosen career.
