Kissidugu Foundation Clean Water for Guinea, West Africa


Thornton , CO US

Project Overview

We are the Kissidugu Foundation, founded by Fara Tolno of Guinea, West Africa. We are working towards building a school in the village of Bel Air in the area of BOFA an hour and a half north of the capital city of Conakry, Guinea. We have purchased land and are in the beginning stages of the first phase, a community center along with Health and Tech facilities. The first building is completed :) And we look forward to having long term sustainable systems in place for clean water. We have found that these filters are great for distributing to families throughout the communities, enabling us to help many people outside of our immediate community in Bel-Air as well as those in our compound. The last time we traveled to Guinea in the beginning of 2014,we were able to provide 17 families with clean water filters thanks to all those who have already donated. We were able to implement the filters in our student workshops as well, teaching locals about the filters and having the children and adults alike using and cleaning the filters. After 6 weeks of using the filters, we are thrilled to take more back to Guinea.

We will be returning to Guinea in January 2016 and hope to bring as many filters as possible with us. Thank you for support, and many thanks to Waves for Water, what an incredible resource. We are so very grateful, clean water is a human right.

Each filter is only $50 and provides one million gallons of clean water! :)
