WAVS Graduate Erickson at Desk

Come and make a difference


In a nearly-forgotten corner of West Africa called Guinea-Bissau, two out of every three people survive on less than $2 each day. Yet, the young people who call this country home are ready to work for a better future. All they need is the opportunity.

WAVS Vocational Schools in Guinea-Bissau train more than 200 students each year in courses including welding, computer basics, and foreign languages — equipping them with skills that translate into jobs. More than 75% of recent graduates have either started working or are continuing to study.

These graduates are now able to use their skills to provide for themselves and their families — for a lifetime.

At Dine-In & Discover West Africa 2020, we will share with you some of the exciting opportunities that the WAVS Schools have to make an impact in the lives of even more young men and women in West Africa this next year.

Come and give opportunity to the future leaders of Guinea-Bissau.

Can’t join us, but still want to make a difference in the lives of young men & women in Guinea-Bissau?
