Guinea Kids sponsors the education of several children in the neighborhood of Enco-Cinq in Conakry, Guinea. In 2007 Guinea Kids Education Fund (GKEF) began as a fundraising effort with a sweet and fun-packed event including a traditional Guinean music and dance performance, a children’s dance performance, and a taste of Guinean food…and so a tradition was born. GKEF has continued through Karim Koumbassa’a efforts and has grown to become Guinea Kids Health & Education Fund.
By simply giving a child a backpack of school supplies or providing a consistent source of education or food, we are ensuring a better future for these children. For the rich culture that the Guinean people share with the world, the least we can provide can make a world of difference.
They have given joy to so many through their laughter, music, dance and hope. It is part of their culture to give to others. With what little they have, they find a way to help all those around them in need. What makes more sense then for us to support them to raise hopeful, healthy, and educated children?
We invite you to join us in making a difference in the world of these children.
We provide the necessary funds for:
• School tuition
• Backpacks filled with school supplies
• School uniforms and shoes
• Student meal program: breakfast and lunch on school days
• After-school tutoring in “The Homework Place”
• Supplies and maintenance for “The Homework Place”
• Salaries for staff in Guinea(employing local Guineans)
• Professional development for staff in Guinea

Many people have given their time, energy and resources to make sure children of Guinea - who would not, otherwise, have a chance to improve their lives through education - are enriched and supported.
