Since 2018, the Diaka Camara Foundation has been working on the project “One School, One Library”. Our goal is to set up modern libraries in public schools in the five municipalities of Conakry first, follow by the rest of the country. In each municipality in Conakry, the FDC will choose a public primary school, college and high school.
The project begins in the commune of Kaloum where a primary school, a middle college and a high school has been chosen to launch the program. On Saturday February 13 2021, thanks to our partners, we have launched the renovation of the library of the chosen high school called “the Lycée 02 Octobre” which is the first high school in the republic of Guinea. The high school is home to 1600 students who have no access to books nor computers. Our main focus is to build a modern library with a computer lab where the students will learn how to use Microsoft Office. The FDC recognizes the importance of giving the students access to the new technologies which is why all of the libraries will have state of the art computer labs so they can learn not only how to use computers but take online classes. We thank all of our partners: Albarach Group, Total, Canal +, SMB, UMS, FODAC, ONFPP, Soft Choice and the Islamic Bank of Guinea for support in making this library a reality. We are hoping that many others will join them in financing the rest so that we each child in Guinea can have access to a decent library
