About Guinea

The West African nation of Guinea is a predominantly Muslim country, home to a population of approximately 12 million people, with natural beautiful landscapes on the ocean, close to the mountains, and in the shade of the forests. The country has the largest reserves of bauxite in the world, and is the second largest producer of the mineral. The agricultural sector provides a subsistence livelihood for nearly 80 percent of the population.

Despite massive mineral, hydroelectric, and agricultural potential, it is one of the poorest countries in the world, due in good part to a history of weak governance that is only gradually being overcome. However, following a largely peaceful and fair presidential election in October 2015 and the end of the Ebola outbreak, the country is once again on a positive trajectory. Our work increases quality health services, with a focus on malaria; reduces poverty through improved food security and nutrition; and increases citizen engagement with more effective and accountable government institutions and processes.
