The parent of a (now evacuated) volunteer recently asked how she can support the peaceful people of Guinea. We discussed this amongst the board members and had a few ideas but we want to hear what you think. I am opening up this entry to facilitate dialogue about what we can do from afar to support ordinary Guineans in their struggle to improve living conditions.
In offering your comments, please make it clear what 'we' you are referring to: PCVs/RPCVs, parents and Guineaphiles, Americans in general, FOG itself, etc.
Please leave your comments here. And feel free to respond to anyone else's comments. Or alternatively, you are free to email your thoughts to communications @ friendsofguinea.org
I will compile all the comments into a future entry. This discussion will also help give the board guidance in determining what actions FOG's board and/or members can take.
