In the summer 2020, the Orange Foundation, ESSOR and its Guinean partner ANADEC initiated an innovative partnership in Bissau: to set up a digital professional training and social support project for the capital’s most vulnerable women within a Digital House.
While 70% of Guinean women are illiterate and live on less than 2 dollars a day, the Orange Foundation, ESSOR and ANADEC are mobilising to support 1500 women without qualifications, unemployed and in a precarious situation towards employment.
These women will be welcomed in an Information and Social and Professional Orientation Office located in the heart of a district on the outskirts of the city centre. They will be listened to and directed towards social services that meet their needs.
Less than 3% of the Guinean population has access to the Internet, even though the acquisition of digital skills is increasingly essential for sustainable integration into the job market. This project will enable 200 women and girls to follow digital workshops in the Digital House.
