We have spend 1 month and a half in Kindia,
Guinea Conakry, and we worked with three organizations.
a private radio lead by and for youth (KaniaZik),
a coordinating organization for the 100 youth organizations of Kindia (CAJEG),
and an organization that work with youth women on their integration in their professional life, and on one experimental project with three schools, on healthy food (AGUIBEJ).
Our partners in Kindia:
Radio KaniaZik FM 107.00
With the radio, we participated to world music discovery program and we worked with young jurnalists of the radio (Mohamed, Bintou, Kadiatou, Mamadou, etc.).
Kaniazik FM was created to inform, educate, sensibilize and instruct the guineane population, and particularly the one of Kindia. The idea was also to employed and trained youth that were getting out of the university, journalist schools, or wider youth with the passion of journalism.
This radio is also a private radio and then is an activity source of incomes.

CAJEG is a coordinating organzation for the youth organizations in Kindia.
After meetings, they requested us for one training in project management and organization of an organization. This one occurred during one week, with 30 participants split in two sessions.
We used a participative approach to enable participant to integrate directly the different steps of project management with working groups. Through this training, we have discovered few organizations of Kindia. There were projects access on clean up operation, the valorization of the local culture, the support of farmers, the professional integration of youth women, and of course the implication of youth in the organization.

Guineane Organization for the well being of youth
It is a local NGO created in 2002, whose fundamental goal is « to improve the citizen quality by helping them to identify and to fight against the pain that affects their blossoming and their personal development ».
We worked together on two current projects :
The experimental project on healthier food occurred in 3 classes of 3 schools of Kindia. This project started in october 2012, with a campaign of sensibilization. We worked together on the monitoring of their previous actions, by evaluating in their classes and with teachers and directors, the impact of the first workshops of sensibilizations. This, in order to establish for this new year a consistent and adapted action plan, according to what has already been done.
In another side, we worked with the training center of couture for the young girls out of school. We spoke about capacity development by setting up an account management inexistent until now. A small party was organized in order to promote the salon with a small parade, and the viewing of a presentation video that we realized together and that will be use as a communication tool for the youth women salon.
