OUR STORIES

With your help, we can change lives

Mamadou's story.

Mamadou’s story.

Mamadou Bachir Balde is 9 years old, born in Labe which is 309 kilometres from the capital city Conakry. At the age of 6, Mamadou was evicted from school for non-payment and as a direct result of this his parent had no choice but to send him to his uncle, who at the time lived in the capital, in the hope that he will provide a better life for him
Mamadou spent a year with his uncle, but due to a relationship breakdown he was ousted from his home and has been living on the streets of Conakry, fending for himself ever since. He took refuge underneath the foundations of a building where many other homeless children and adults have called their own, all suffering from malnourishment and the simple things in life.
Every morning when Mamadou sees other kids going to school he envies them, he would love to have the opportunity to study and enjoy his childhood. There is still drive and determination inside Mamadou and he spends most afternoons begging for food and spare change, since October 2018 he started working with a mechanic, learning how to fix cars in the hope for a better future.

Faya Milimono (15) shares his story.

Faya Milimono is 15 years old. He was born in Beyla in the south of the Republic of Guinea which is 473 miles from the capital city of Guinea (Conakry), less than 70 miles from the border between the Republic of Guinea and Ivory Coast.
When the civil war broke out in Ivory coast in 2011, many families feared for their lives in Beyla and started relocating to other cities nearby. Faya’s mother did not relocate, stayed in Beyla but decided to send Faya to live with his brother in Conakry.
At the age of 8, Faya joined his brother selling second-hand goods on the streets of Conakry to fend for their family. It was at the age of 15 that Faya first stepped into a classroom, he is now in primary 1 and missed his entire childhood education. Despite taking Faya so long to start studying, he is very determined to study and help his brother sall second-hand goods after school hours in order afford the cost of his education. Faya is hoping for a better future, he would like to be a teacher one day.
