Kissidugu Foundation’s President Gabriel Fara Tolno and Vice President Michal Anna Carrillo along with volunteers/students; Bradley, Mary, Laine and Shelley have just returned from Guinea, West Africa, and we are happy to report back that it was a successful journey!
We were able to distribute SIXTY Luminaid & Berkey solar lights and THIRTY Waves for Water filters to families and build four Berkey water systems for use at the Kissidugu School. We brought multiple huge bags of natural medicine, supplies for dressing wounds and items for give away; New Balance shoes, organic seeds and much more!  The Health and Technology buildings on property have been completed, a tower was built for the water storage tank and the schools dance space was finished while we were on site. Gardening, and fruit tree planting were completed along with a chicken coop built out of recycled materials. Infrastructure for the kitchen/rooms and sanitation/trash systems were also set into place.
The Kissidugu Foundation is honored to be creating a campus that will provide needed basic resources, a community center, and eventually high level education to serve the Bel Air community and village of Koukoude in Guinea, West Africa.
We hope you will continue to follow our progress and get involved by donating time or funds as we move into phase two of the Kissidugu School vision. Together we can make a difference.  YOUR SUPPORT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE!  All donations are tax-deductible.  INUWAULI/ THANK YOU!
