ACTION GUINEA BISSAU
Registered Charity Number: 1189956
We are a UK charity working to resolve issues surrounding gender-equality, unemployment and the environment in Guinea-Bissau.
We are working with trusted people in Bissau to help with 4 areas:
1. Micro-credit loans of around £200 each to select people to start or expand a small business
2. An emergency fund for health issues / weather-related destruction
3. Help with basics e.g. digging wells, toilets, solar panels
4. Support education projects
WHO ARE WE?
We are a group of 6 who saw an urgent need to help Guinea-Bissau and wanted to use our skills and network to bring change to the country.
WHAT DO WE DO?
We run fundraisers and work with businesses in the UK to sponsor much-needed projects in Guinea-Bissau in a transparent, sustainable and empowering way.
Guinea-Bissau is among the world's least developed nations and one of the 10 poorest countries in the world. Nearly 70% live below the poverty line on less than $1.90 a day, meaning we can have a large impact with every donation.
