Raised: $1,790 / Goal: $50,000
Join our campaign: "One City, One Learning Resource Center". The Alliance believes that every city in Guinea should have at least one library or Learning Resources Center, which is not the case in many Guinean cities. This initiative is to raise awareness of this crucial need in the quest for building better learning opportunities for Guinean students, who will have to compete with other students around the world in this ever changing global environment. We believe that existing libraries should be refurbished. We cannot stress enough having this vital resource in quest for knowledge. Libraries or Learning Resources Centers benefit nearly everyone. They enhance learning for students and encourage them to deeply engage in a particular subject matter through research. Libraries and or Learning Resources Centers also serve as fact-finding sources for the community where citizens can use the library and their powerful research databases and other information resources to get information on variety of subjects from history to entrepreneurship and other subject in between.
Raised: $4,650 / Goal: $6,000
Help us alleviate the burden of children walking 3 or more miles to school by providing them with a bicycle. A number of Guinean students live in far distances from schools, your financial support will help a Guinean student, who has to walk long distances to and from school have access to a means of transportation through our bicycle donation initiatives. By providing students with a mean of transportation to get to and from school, your donation will help in supporting our mission of providing material assistance to students as they pursue their educational goals. In addition to the purchase of each bicycle, the Alliance will also purchase and provide students with head gear in order to promote their physical safety while operating their bicycles.
Raised: $0 / Goal: $100,000
Our goal is to raise money to provide scholarships to promising students in Guinea and also work with universities around the world to secure either full or partial scholarships to our award recipients. Scholarships awards are contingent upon fund availability and or scholarship commitment from a university. In addition, we will organize and engage in the logistical aspects of our award recipients traveling from Guinea to their respective institution including assisting them with travel documents cost, supporting traveling expenses, and providing our recipients with university "starter care packages". Recipients will receive academic and moral support through identified tutoring and mentoring programs at their respective institutions. The Alliance will continue to support and track our recipient scholars through their university matriculation until graduation. During their academic tenure, scholars will be encouraged to volunteer in their respective institutions and or community to serve as tutors, peer mentors and other volunteer programs that they can qualify for. The Alliance will also work closely with our scholars, who have met academic excellence and choose to pursue their education at the graduate level.

We know that learning tools support education by creating opportunities for students to visualize, conceptualize, create, test and replicate theories, formulas, notions and other formats of information presented to them by their teachers inside of the classroom. We welcome your donations in the form of financial contributions as well as your material donations of actual learning tools that can be used inside of the classroom at all grades levels to benefit Guinean children as they continue their pursuit of knowledge and quest to become educated world citizens..

It is hard to imagine a student in the 21st century without a computer or computer access, but this is the case for many Guinean students currently attending schools in Guinea. In an effort to accomplish our goal of helping students have access to these vital learning tools, we welcome your monetary support and or actual new and refurbished computers and other electronics learning tools such as I-pads and E-reader tablets, calculators (scientific and business) that will be donated to Guinean students.
